Design by Cristian Zuzunaga, 2010.
Graphic artist, Cristian Zuzunaga, bases his work on the decomposition of color through pixels. Both versions of the Digit Rug have their source in photographic enlargement, giving the pieces a digital and technological look. Depending on the light or time of day, a glance captures the random union of one part of the 26 colors that make up the rug, creating surprising optical effects.
Hand-knotted of 100% New Zealand wool, the Digit Rug is available in two styles and two sizes.
This is a handmade craft product. Minor variations, in size and color, are inevitable.
Material(s): 100% New Zealand wool
Designer: Cristian Zuzunaga
Born in Barcelona, London-based Cristian Zuzunaga studied Typo/Graphic Design at the London College of Communiciation followed by an MA in Communication Art & Design at the Royal College of Art in London. His final degree show was a collaboration with a menswear designer based on the pixel - the icon of our time - and Supermodern Architecture.
Since 2004, Cristian Zuzunaga has been looking at the city as a metaphor, a living organism that evolves and changes in a way that reflects our own evolution. Using architecture and the way global cities such as Barcelona, London, New York or Shanghai are constructed inspires and gives form to his unique visual vocabulary. He uses a combination of graphic design with letterpress and screen-printing techniques to create colorful visual landscapes.
His clients include Kvadrat, Ligne Roset, Christophe Delcourt, Tate Gallery and nanimarquina.View other products by Cristian Zuzunaga
