Green cushion

By Zuzunaga


  • Description

    Integrate: Time and Space is a further exploration in our Alchemy series: a collection of handwoven blankets, plaids and cushions, all produced in the Spanish region of Terrassa, near Barcelona.

    Alchemy is an ancient tradition whose philosophy underpins much of our work at Zuzunaga. While in popular culture it is best know for turning metal into gold or creating an 'elixir of life', for our work, alchemy is inherently about transformation. Integrate: Time and Space reflects alchemy not only through its original design process, but also through the transformative effect that results from making products by hand.

    Each design starts from a photograph we have taken of the urban environment. We use this analogue image and transform it into a digital one. This enables us to manipulate it and create designs that are then applied to products using different materials, printing and manufacturing techniques. Each product is then handwoven on a wooden loom by skilled craftsmen at Teixidors in the Spanish region of Terrassa, near Barcelona – completing the cycle of transformation, back from digital to analogue once more.

    Teixidors is an inspiring company that started life as a social project in 1983. Its goal was to help and support people with learning difficulties by teaching them the art of manual weaving. It now works with people with a wide range of disabilities and to this day, works to integrate people at risk of exclusion by teaching them a creative trade and developing exceptional products.

    The debut collection was awarded the illustrious Editors Award for Best Textiles at the 2012 International Contemporary Furniture Fair in New York. We have since expanded our range to include more blankets, plaids in new colour combinations which integrate black threads for more pronounced shades and hue variations.

    Zuzunaga is a family composed of an international team of designers, illustrators, writers, curators and web masters. Like our designs, the people we work with are playful, spontaneous, passionate! Our family grew organically. Happenstance early on led to a series of collaborative projects and we realised the immense value in working with individuals of different and complementary talents. From this moment on the company has continued to seek a broad range of collaborators. Working with others makes us challenge ourselves and look at things from a different point of view, often leading to unexpected results – and new discoveries.
