Young, dynamic, cosmopolitan. Born in Spain and based in London, Cristian Zuzunaga has in the course of his life already concerned himself with a whole gamut of disciplines, from biology via typography to fashion. For some time now he has drawn inspiration for his textile prints from urban elements. For his "Squaring of the circle" collection he zoomed into photos of cityscapes - getting up so close that they dissolved into a pixel structure of tiny geometric shapes. He has now launched a new set of designs for Kvadrat, in which he addresses issues relating to space and time, urbanity and globalization. Nancy Jehmlich met Cristian Zuzunaga and spoke with him about the rain in London, fortunate coincidences, and the passion of working with pixels.

Pixellated is a dirty word in photography — those ugly blurry little squares you get on enlarged low-res images taken, say, on a cheap phone, or downloaded from the internet. You see them in newspapers — or even on TV — in “citizen reports” from mobiles. Of course all digital images are pixellated — it's just the size of the squares, minute in high-res images, that's so crucial.
French manufacturer Ligne Roset has put the full Monty on one of its chairs, and WovenGround on the King's Road has a pixellated rug also designed by Zuzunaga for the Spanish company Nani Marquina.
