A highlight below from Selfridges website:

The Memphis movement redefined design in the early 80s, pulling us into a world of squiggles, bold lines and childlike wonder. Reuniting under the name CoopDPS, its founders Nathalie Du Pasquier and George Sowden have produced a new range for ZigZagZurich that similarly reimagines home textiles; this Africa throw is typical of the cartoon cool purveyed by the duo, made from New Zealand wool to keep you snug.

About CoopDPS x ZigZagZurich

CoopDPS is the  new cooperation between Nathalie Du Pasquier and George Sowden - two internationally recognised designers, who came to the attention of the public as founder members of Memphis, the Italian group that changed the idea of design forever with the first Memphis exhibition in Milano, September 1981.  ZigZagZurich is proud to edit and publish their first collection together on textiles.

Star Magazine x ZigZagZurich - Alphabet City Bedding

Graduating from Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London, Natalie's explorations are exquisite hybrids of drawings and collages, which reflect her involvement with Fashion and Art.  Alphabet City is her first piece of work for this collection originally drawn for her son.  Artwork is drawn on receipts, train tickets and other materials to hand, composed into a comical collection of animals and letters. A is for apple, D is for Dog and Z is for..... 

ZigZagZurich Kids – Designed for little kids and big kids. The new ZigZagZurich children's bedding collection for big and little kids celebrates humor and colour through original illustrations, watercolors, and characters!  

Since our launch in 2013 working with original artists for home textiles, we decided to launch a kid’s collection of home textiles that is a change from the norm.  Working with incredibly talented, silly, funny and cheerful artists and kid artists from around the globe to bring this new collection to life, the goal was to mix original artwork and design that was different from the high street, something that the big kids in us like whilst incorporating the humor of the child’s mind.

We use high quality natural cotton for printing the collection on, not synthetic fibers, with the same quality standard of Italian production we stand behind on all our ranges.

NZZ am Sonntag x ZigZagZurich - Trends 2017 Featuring Moonish Tag Collection Bedding

NZZ am Sonntag New Years Day Edition featuring the Trends for 2017.  Our ZigZagZurich x Moonish collaboration popped up on the style radar featuring the Baby's Breath bedding from the Tag Collection we launched here.

A summary of Moonish is here below and you sell our full Q&A with them on the blog

Moonish was founded in Brooklyn in 2012 by musician Matt Taylor & visual artist Giovanna Masseroni. The creative studio’s inspiration is well represented by one of it’s plywood tile designs, THE FIFTH. Lissajous Figures are patterns that emerge from the combination of two sound waves. When their ratios are simple, their corresponding figures are visually harmonic.

Our latest artist collaboration to be announced is the Brooklyn duo of Moonish.  The work of Matt and Giovanna caught our attention in its simplicity and beauty and how it had been applied within their studio reportage.  Moonish works covers an array of work and applications - from hand crafted wall tiles to lighting, wallpaper and beyond.   The wall tiles and the artwork they create have been featured in the press around the world, recognised by the likes of Architectural Digest, Interior Design magazine and beyond.  The duo current are showing at the Triode Paris show here
