WAX Layer - Artist Duvet Covers and Pillows by Martina Vontobel
The WAX bedding collection was designed by the artist Martina Vontobel. Martina Vontobel is known for her material-characteristic works in the fine arts. Using a surprisingly timeless design language, is not only evident in her textile designs, but also in huge room installations in museums. Lines, layers and networks are topics in her diverse artistic work.
With craftsmanship, mindfulness and a sense for the essentials of aesthetics, she creates an almost zen-like handwriting that surprises with her direct and simple beauty. Originally created in 1998 in the technique of wax reservation, the artworks were drawn directly on the fabric with wax and then dyed by hand, with unique techniques such as scratching the wax surfaces to create even more elaborate patterns.
Now the time has come to be able to capture the original artworks using special techniques and reproduce them using the latest print methods, without losing the character and capturing the essence of the manuscript.
The resulting 20 year wait has ended up with the Collection WAX consisting of 4 designs, WAX Line, WAX Layer, WAX Field, WAX Grass. Classy, simple, wonderfully timeless but with a lot of identity. The strength is to be found in serenity.
The ZigZagZurich Artist bedding collection brings to home textiles a new dimension of art and design. We work with artists and designers from around the world across a broad spectrum of the art world, transferring their work or ideas onto textiles and developing products that are unique to the market. Our aim is to add a new level of bed linens never seen before - luxury bedding with original art that supports our artists directly with every product sold.
We use high-quality, super soft cotton for printing the collection on, not synthetic fibers, with the same quality standard of Italian production we stand behind on all our ranges. All bedding is hand made in Italy in our Atelier.
