In the interview by Simon Keane Cowell at DAAily bar during Milan Design Week 2022, Cristian Zuzunaga describes how he uses colour, geometric shapes, abstraction and repetition to develop his iconic pixelated style.
Originally studying biology, Cristian was fascinated by the microscope and the way in which it enables us to magnify an object and to break it down into its smallest parts.
Though the biological studies did not last, the practice of magnifying did and to this day, breaking down patterns and images into their infinitesimal components remains at the core of his practice.
Each pixel connects with its surroundings, just as we connect with ours.
In 2010 Cristian founded his eponymous brand Zuzunaga, designing joyful, timeless and gender neutral products that capture the dynamic nature of modern life.
