Artist Bedding Collection 2021
ZigZagZurich collaborates with artists and designers, both established and new, on unique collections transformed into textiles under the direction of creative director Michele Rondelli and founders of ZigZagZurich. The new 2021 Artist Bedding Collection adds an exciting new roster of artists from around the globe. We use the highest quality European woven cotton for our bedding, not synthetic fibers, with the same quality standard of handmade Italian production we stand behind on all our ranges.
Our next roster of artists includes:
Blandine Sergent is a mathematician by training who has made painting a passion since she joined the Atelier des Beaux Arts in Paris in 2015 where she attended the artist Alberto Cont's art classes. Her approach consists in freeing her emotions through the impulse of colour and gesture, thus creating an enchanting dialogue between the material and the artist. Indeed, colour is at the very heart of her artwork. She seeks the light, beauty and joy in the infinite world of colors.
The bedding “Parterre” and “Glacier” come from paintings she made in acrylic on canvas and represent colours fading and in movement.Parterre Artist Bedding Collection by Blandine SergentGlacier Artist Bedding Collection by Blandine Sergent
Céline 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, Céline 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.» Céline Cornu.
“Tanaka” bedding is inspired by Japanese art and its fabulous ink paintings. The name “Tanaka” means the middle of the rice field. This design can also evoke the intense colored landscapes of Japan.Tanaka Artist Bedding Collection by Celine Cornu
Jonathan Lawes is an artist and printmaker based in southeast London. He creates prints with a distinctive graphic edge, reflecting his love for geometry, shape and pattern. He has a keen eye for nuance and layering, paying close attention to colour and detail. Working in a loose and organic way, abstract compositions are formed and ultimately developed due to his genuine enthusiasm for, and evolution of, the screen printing process.
The design of “Haru” bedding comes from a mural he created using large rolls of colored masking tape. The process he adopted was very similar to screen printing: layering individual colours and shapes on top of one another to create a sense of depth to a flat surface. This was then transferred digitally into the computer, from where he created the repeat pattern.Haru Bedding Collection by Jonathan Lawes

“Boum” bedding navigates between figuration and abstraction. It is a trippy return to the 90s pop aesthetic. With an overexposed and out-of-focus picture, the designer is pushing reality to the limit and creating new forms of perception. The vivid colours and enigmatic figures have something of a daydream with a touch of kaleidoscopic hallucinations.Boum Artist Bedding Collection by Michele Rondelli
“Kurt” bedding is a tribute to Dadaism art movement. The out-of-focus dots on the coloured background are like projected points of light in motion on the bedlinen. Kurt Artist Bedding Collection by Michele Rondelli
The “Aura” bedding is inspired by the invisible energy that surround all living things. Each person has his own aura that reflects their personal energy. This bedding puts us in the mysticism of the universe.Aura Yellow Artist Bedding Collection by Michele Rondelli
Nina Ballay is a French material and graphic designer. She graduated in 2016 from the ENSAD in Paris with a major in textile and material design. She has always favored a multidisciplinary approach in design. After her studies, she joined Patricia Urquiola design studio in Milan where she put into practice her material and graphic design approach inventing her profession. Her personal work is a little figurative, playing with contrast, always trying to out-scale or change the context of everyday life objects and styles. She likes to mix and play with the context of things, colours and materials.
“Tapes” bedding is inspired by a simple object of our everyday life. The composition is both abstract and figurative because the colourful elements of the composition are in fact tiny pieces of overlaid tapes. «I have drawn with tape like I would do with any simple shape to create an abstract composition. Let’s sleep in an abstract landscape from our everyday life!» - Nina Ballay.Tapes Artist Bedding Collection by Nina Ballay

After having practiced for different studios in 2019 he decided to start an independent career as a freelancer.
The bedding “Pietre” is inspired by the watercolor technique. Simple, organic forms, made of water and floating pigment particles, sometimes collapsed one into the other, thus creating unexpected streams of colors and new merged forms. The name “Pietre” comes from the combination of light sage green, red, earth tones, and deep blues that reminded him of the palette of medieval frescos.Pietre Artist Bedding Collection by Remo Mazzoni
