Swiss textiles brand ZigZagZurich is on a mission to revitalise interiors everywhere, with its unique artist-designed furnishings that fuse original designs with high quality materials. The label offers an eclectic range of everything from bedding to bathrobes, but it's the ZigZagZurich blankets that are top of our interiors wish list right now.
Available in a choice of either 100% woven cotton jacquard or 100% New Zealand wool, these blankets offer the ultimate design statement for your sofa or bed (the cotton ones can also be used in the garden or at the beach). Scroll on for five of our favourites, each produced in collaboration with a different artist.
Inspired by a snapshot of a handmade mobile in motion, Denise Carbonell created this 'Balance' design for ZigZagZurich. The combination of clean lines and bold primary colours makes for a playful interior addition that will instantly perk up your space.
Leo Zero is an influential London-based graphic artist, designer and music producer. His artwork 'Cycles', which is featured on this ultra-soft wool blanket, reflects a '90s-style aesthetic and pays homage to his combination of interests in music and art.
Kevin Lucbert's 'Dedale' blanket is inspired by the ancient motif of the labyrinth which comes from the mythological Minotaur maze built by King Minos in Crete. “I was interested in the almost abstract rhythm of the passages and walls whose juxtaposition form the labyrinth,” says Lucbert.
The 'Bengali' blanket, designed by artist Sophie Probst and ZigZagZurich creative director Michele Rondelli, draws inspiration from the jungles of Asia, adding a unique twist of design and humour combined with warm earthy colours. It's the perfect soft furnishing to add some personality to a neutral interior design decor.
The 'B to C' design by Yanyi Ha explores the relationship between architecture and nature, making for a stylish blanket that will look the part in your home, the beach or park. The best part is that it's reversible, so you can flip it over for a completely fresh look.
