Imaginatio for Delcourt Furniture
An extraordinary collaboration between two very distinct designers launched in January 2009 at Maison et Objet and at Le Bon Marche Rive Gauche in Paris.
Using his favoured design method of expanding and contracting digital images of cityscapes, Cristian Zuzunaga worked on a special edition Imaginatio pixel fabric. This bold, bright print was then upholstered onto Christophe Delcourt sofas and chairs – combining Zuzunaga boldness and colour with the sleek lines and timeless style proposed by the Delcourt studio.
Christophe Delcourt is a French interior designer whose studio first opened in Paris’ Marais in 1998. He is famed for his use of elegant lines, subtle shades and a loyalty to the craftspeople he has worked with through his career.
Delcourt items reimagined with Zuzunaga fabric include EOL Chairs, REV sofa and the imposing “Rue du Jour” sofa. The collaboration was applauded not least for its union of Zuzunaga, the master of colour, with Delcourt, famed for being a “no colour” designer. Delcourt commented:
“Cristian’s colorful and abstract pattern has been studied and applied in order to erase the boundaries of furniture, giving an illusion of a painting depending on the angle of view .”
Imaginatio fabric is sold exclusively through Christophe Delcourt products.
