ZigZagZurich collaborates with artists and designers, both established and new, on unique collections transformed into textiles under the direction of creative director Michele Rondelli. The new 2021 ZigZagZurich Shower Curtains Collection adds an exciting new roster of artists from around the globe. ZigZagZurich shower curtains are made of high quality heavy weight panama cotton printed with original artist works and sealed with a waterproof coating. Once printed, we then treat the cotton with a special acrylic coating, which seals the cotton making it waterproof and mold proof, yet still soft to touch like real panama cotton. Each curtain is handmade then in Italy - the shower rings are using the highest quality brass, all hand finished. So no more plastic shower curtains, plastic liners - you can have real cotton luxury in your bathroom without any of the fuss with unique artist works.
Our next roster of artists includes:
Remo Mazzoni is an artist and textile designer based in Switzerland. After graduating in textile design at the CSIA (high school for applied arts) in Lugano in 2008 and in visual arts at the Academy of Brera in Milan in 2012, he worked for several years in the contemporary art field and the textile industry specializing in home furnishing textiles. After having practiced for different studios in 2019 he decided to start an independent career as a freelancer. The shower curtain “Tilescapes” is inspired by polychrome tile roof of historical palaces and churches of Switzerland.
Fiona Ryan is a textile designer based in Zurich, Switzerland. She is currently exploring the ancient technique of “Ecru” (marbling) as a way to focus on colour and movement and its effects on mood and energy. “Ecru” is a method of printing where colours are floated on a liquid surface and manipulated by the movement of air to form organic shapes and patterns reminiscent of rock and star formations. The shower curtain “Marble” is inspired by the “Ecru” technique.
Jenny Mcgeed Dougherty is a visual artist and a textile designer living in Portland, USA. She works across various media and platforms, including painting, murals, textile design, graphic design and arts education. She is inspired by subtle patterns and textures created by repeated human interaction with a landscape, and the intersection between the cadence of nature and humankind. “Eanalyzer” shower curtain has a grid pattern whose concept has been explored by many artists. “The grid will always exist as a metaphor, symbolizing something different for each viewer. I love the way the rigidity of these grid lines play against the flowing nature of the fabric on the shower curtain, creating movement and new shape forms naturally.” - Jenny Mcgeed Dougherty.
Karina Eibatova is an internationally known watercolor painter, illustrator, muralist, typographer, pencil artist, and videographer who specializes in landscape art. Her artwork frequently depicts natural objects and phenomena, such as minerals and animals, as well as scenes depicting the universe. Karina has contributed artwork to album covers and layouts, exhibition spaces, magazines, and hotel murals. "My inspiration lies in the discovering life as a phenomena, and in the admiring an amazing Planet we live at. Admiring the very essential things, such as a pomegranate or a stone can inspire me to express that deep impression. With my works, I try to deliver a distant look on the fragments of Nature, therefore I draw only organic objects, landscapes and the Universe." – Karina Eibatova.
Michele Rondelli is a Swiss born interior architect educated in Switzerland and in Paris, France. He then worked for major architectural and design companies in the U.S. and Asia. His tasteful design approach and unique sense for Zeitgeist can be found in many international private projects but also in the public segment. Since 2015 he was appointed as the Creative Director for ZigZagZurich and 4Spaces, two innovative and leading textile brands headquartered in Zurich Switzerland.
Sophie Probst is a German textile designer that lives and works in Zurich. Since 2015 she completed her diploma at the Stuttgart Academy of Fine Art. Her greatest love was in the production of modern textiles in the classic crafts of weaving and knitting. During her studies whilst in Barcelona she deepened her interest in graphic and multi-colored patterns, drawing incredible pieces of artwork and transforming them onto raw fabrics. Her designs are a celebration of colour and freedom, with intricate detail that covers broad spectrums of interest. Her travels in Asia and Europe have inspired her work to mix cultures.
Celine Cornu is a French textile designer. She completed her Master in textile design and surface materials at the Lille Higher School of Applied Arts. She draws inspiration from textile movements and its play of lights to create lively designs. Passionate about noble but also innovative fabrics, Celine likes to contrast traditional materials with a radically contemporary and clean aesthetic. In her creative process, she mixes digital and manual techniques to create renewal and amazement. “With textiles, it is matter of precision, of extreme sensuality, but also mystery and unspeakable.” – Celine Cornu.
