Cristian Zuzunaga is a Barcelona-born textile designer. His movement toward textiles began through graphic and type design, which he studied at the Royal College of Art. Understanding the value of textiles as literal fabric of everyday life, Zuzunaga strives to incorporate the nature of the city in his designs.
One example is the shanghai fabric designed by Zuzunaga for Ligne Roset. In it an interest in color and digital abstraction is apparent. Here the upholstery is found on the Togo sofa, a seat made of polyether foam. Initially, the shanghai fabric developed as a project for 100% Design London, but it will appear again next month at Design Miami.
