Designer Hella Jongerius (1963) has become known for the special way she fuses industry and craft, high and low tech, tradition and the contemporary.
After graduating Eindhoven Design Academy in 1993 she started her own design company, Jongeriuslab, through which she produces her own projects and projects for clients such as Maharam (New York), Royal Tichelaar Makkum (The Netherlands), Vitra (Basel) and IKEA (Sweden).
Her work has been shown at museums and galleries such as the Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum (New York), MoMA (New York), the Design Museum (London), Galerie KREO (Paris) and Moss gallery (New York). The Dutch designer has created 300 unique vases as special collectors artwork to accompany the handmade, signed and numbered edition of the book: Hella Jongerius: Misfit. Phaidon.com went to the oldest factory in The Netherlands: Royal Tichelaar Makkum, for a tour of the beautiful factory with the Managing Director, Jan Tichelaar, to see how these special vases are made and to hear more about their manufacturing and the different layers of colour applied. ‘The story is about experimenting’ says Jan Tichelaar, ‘it is an experiment which become a project which become a product.’

Barcelona – born, London-based Cristian Zuzunaga studied Typo / Graphic Design at the London College of Communciation followed by an MA in Communication Art & Design at the Royal College of Art in London. His final degree show was a collaboration with a menswear designer based on the pixel – the icon of our time – and Supermodern Architecture.

Since 2004, Cristian Zuzunaga has been looking at the city as a metaphor, a living organism that evolves and changes in a way that reflects our own evolution. Using architecture and the way global cities such as Barcelona, London, New York or Shanghai are constructed inspires and gives form to his unique visual vocabulary. He uses a combination of graphic design with letterpress and screen-printing techniques to create colourful visual landscapes.

His clients include Kvadrat, Ligne Roset, Christophe Delcourt, Tate Gallery and Nanimarquina
