We are delighted to announce that the rugs Cristian Zuzunaga designed for Brintons shortlisted for the ELLE Decoration British Design Awards 2014, in the Best British Pattern category!
The winners in the seven awards categories – Best British Product, Best British Interior, Best British Exterior, Best British Designer, Best Sustainable Design, Best British Pattern and the John Lewis ‘Made in the UK’ award – will be decided by public vote, to be cast via elledecoration.co.uk/britishdesignawards.
Momentum A/W14-15 is Zuzunaga’s first winter menswear collection: a series of cardigans, capes, jumpers, hats and scarves inspired by city architecture and grid designs. Movement, mapping and squared patterns are at the heart of the collection.
The expression ‘Squaring the circle’ means to do something that is seemingly impossible, like mass-producing unique objects. Our cushion collection, made in collaboration with Kvadrat, has a repeat pattern that is ±5m. The way we cut the fabric and randomly stitch both cushion faces allows us to confidently say that each cushion is unique.
A bitmap is a way of storing a digital image by compressing its elements. The prints in the Bitmap collection derive from this process of compression. The name is also a play on words: if one were to zoom out hundreds of times, one would find a photograph of an urban landscape. Bitmap thus acts not only as a map of a digital image, but a map of a real, physical place
