Individuate Pixel A5 Notebook is part of the Pixel Collection.
Where your book comes from
These one-of-a-kind books came to life through the Pixel Collection of digitally-printed cushions. Pixel cushions have become one of Zuzunaga’s signature creations. They were launched in 2010 during London Design Festival, in collaboration with Danish brand Kvadrat. Individuality is at the very heart of the product and each cushion is completely unique.
Given the large size of the repeating pattern and the way the cushion faces are cut, no two cushions are alike. The production of cushions creates between 12 and 30cm of leftover material. With no use, this fabric is usually discarded. We decided to transform this fabric into books, to repurpose this precious and unique fabric and breathe life into what would be a redundant material.
The left over printed fabric is collected and sent to Terrassa where El Taller del Llibre individually craft each book by hand. It is a skilled and time-consuming process. The binding of such small booklets is incredibly intricate work and it requires precision, an eye for detail and a lot of patience. Each booklet has small differences, ensuring each creation is truly unique and one-of-a-kind.
There are two paper stock options; plain recycled 100gsm paper pages or coloured Popset 80gsm coloured paper pages. We decided to transform this fabric into books, to repurpose this precious and unique fabric and breathe life into what would be a redundant material.
Waste not, want not.
The Individuate project is dedicated to Graham Horwood and C.G.Jung. According to C. G. Jung, the functions of consciousness relate to the ways in which the conscious mind apprehends reality. ‘Sensation’ tells one that something exists. ‘Thinking’ informs one of what it is. ‘Feeling’ guides us emotionally, and helps us to decide whether something is good or bad, and ‘Intuition’ helps us to speculate upon its origin, as well as its past and future use.
Our books are gifts; the gift of time. They are a place of virtual inspiration to breathe life back into yourself, your mind and your relationship with the world around you. Striving always for projection instead of introspection, these books are an oasis or a time and space for our minds.
Our books enable you to organise your mind, to draw, to dream and to write. These creative endeavours will help you to embark on an inner journey which will, in turn, manifest as your present reality.
