Zuzunaga creates timeless, non-gender specific and sustainable home and fashion accessories. Founded by artist and designer Cristian Zuzunaga, our brand and our products are a reflection on and of what it means to be human today.
Our accessories lie at the crosswords of art and design. We call them usable or wearable art. Each one of our designs is based on an artwork hand-created by Cristian Zuzunaga, which is then digitally manipulated into a print for design application. Our process includes not just the translation of art, colour, tradition and material into a finished product, but follows an extensive philosophical process that imbues our products with meaning.
Colour is at the heart of everything we do, and we use it to positively affect human emotion. We draw inspiration from nature, the built environment, anthropology, psychological experience and social discourse. We aim to marry the digital and the analogue, and represent the synthesis of the old and the new, the natural and the man-made world, the female and the male, the yin and the yang.
Zuzunaga is founded upon four cornerstones:
- Trust: We create accessories that allow you to have a good conscience.
- Respect: We are respectful of our environment and of people.
- Beauty: We believe that beauty can be found anywhere.
- Belonging: When Zuzunaga was first established, our aim was to develop more than a brand.
