Zuzunaga - Design as art
The span of Zuzunaga’s work is wide and includes print, photography, sculpture, textile, and furniture design. Instead of concentrating on one kind of expression, the founder and designer Cristian Zuzunaga specialises on the shape which seems to suit him the best. The emotional effect of colours and patterns is focussed in the work of the artist and his design studio.
The traveller Zuzunaga is influenced by architecture and urban surroundings, eastern and western philosophies, alchemy, anthropology, sociology, as well as psychology as studied by Carl Gustav Jung. In his similarly-named studio based in England and Spain, Zuzunaga has the aim of catching the dynamic nature of contemporary life – human vivacity in a digital world, design as art. Single pixels are thereby icons of our time, in the centre of Zuzunaga’s design, being vitalised by colours and emotions.
That kind of design is Zuzunaga’s response to today’s “supermodernity.” Supermodernity describes the development of people in making up the restless world of the moment and in being changed by the moment at the same time. Running forward is what counts today: To make digitalism human. With highly modern techniques, simple, vivid products appear that evoke sensual reactions. “Re-architecture” is the process where all of this happens: The use of ideas in the immediate surroundings to create carpets, pillows, or textiles.
