Rugs maker Brinton wins Best Pixelation Award
Jan '14
The results of the design world’s highest-ranking honours, The Wallpaper* Design Awards 2014 have been released.

The Best Pixelation Award has been awarded to Brintons for their Christian Zuzunaga ‘Deep Grid’ rug. This striking rug is woven with pioneering High Definition Weave Technology that allows Brintons to weave up to 33 colours with ultra-precise clarity.

A specialist British brand for over 230 years, and Royal Warrant holders since 1958, Brintons maintains their position as the world’s leading manufacturer of high quality woven carpets and rugs. Brintons has a reputation built on design innovation, product excellence and technical skill illustrated in this award winning collaboration.

Inspired by the contemporary relevance of the antique fabrics and design papers in Brintons’ archive, the world’s largest historical pattern library, Cristian Zuzunaga’s rugs engage with squares and colours to repeat, reproduce and build creative new patterns from unique formal prototypes. Visiting the archive, Cristian was captivated by similarities to his own design principles – squared, pixel based designs, brightly coloured

palettes of contrasting colours evident in weaving and wool dying dating back centuries. All these rugs are made with genuine wool rich axminster.

Zuzunaga is an international design studio specialising in unique, colourful interior projects, textiles and fashion accessories. Formed by artist and designer Cristian Zuzunaga, the company’s mission is to create beautiful products that capture the dynamic nature of contemporary living.

The Wallpaper* Design awards ceremony will be held on the 15th January 2014 in San Francisco with judges including Victoria Beckham, Michael Chow, Ron Gilad, Spike Jonze and Thom Mayne.

“Brintons are delighted that the Zuzunaga by Brintons ‘Deep Grid’ rug has won a prestigious Wallpaper* Design Award for 2014. This dynamic floor piece combines Zuzunaga’s unique innovative design style with Brintons’ state of the art multicolour weaving technology.

"A striking 25 colours can be found within this contemporary pixel based design; the first offering of an exciting collaboration between one of interiors freshest design houses with one of the world’s oldest carpet and rug weavers.” Don Coates, MD of Brintons.

Brintons have created this collection of luxury rugs as part of a wider collaboration with Zuzunaga.  This exciting collaboration is testament to the powerful combination of unique innovative design and digital imagery with ancient fabrics and state of the art multicolour weaving technology from Brintons.
