Renowned for exploiting the pixel within a highly idiosyncratic body of work Cristian Zuzunaga is an atypical designer with a marked graphic art influence.
Born and raised in Barcelona Cristian Zuzunaga lived in London for more than a decade before moving to Bristol where his studio is now based. Multiculturalism is part of his DNA with a Catalan mother and Peruvian father. He studied Graphic Design but was always very interested in the world of biology, a discipline that he applied to his own field of work.
Zuzunaga’s work cannot be pigeonholed into a single area, but instead explores multiple disciplines seeking the best expression for each, everything from; sculpture, photography, textiles and typography to furniture design and printing. The foundation of Zuzunaga's work is his use of colour as understanding of architecture, strongly influenced by Eastern and Western philosophy and always understanding the urban environment in which its design is framed. In 2010 he founded his own brand-studio, where these values are easily legible.
