RCA 50 years of Graphic Design

The Royal College of Art is hosting a major exhibition, book and talks, revealing the rich history of graphic design at the RCA since 1963.

At Zuzunaga we were so proud to find out that Cristian Zuzunaga’s work has been included in this historical exhibition with different creations:

The Wallpaper award winner rug, Deep Grid, a collaboration between Cristian Zuzunaga and Brintons, 2014.

The Steel armchair designed by Enrico Franzolini upholstered with pixelated fabric, a collaboration between Cristian Zuzunaga and Moroso,  printed by Kvadrat, 2008.

An outfit from Quadrat’s final MA RCA collection, a collaboration between Cristian Zuzunaga and Peter Maxwell Smith, 2007.

 

More about the exhibition

In 1963 the first ever exhibition of graphic design took place at the Royal College of Art. Graphics RCA: Fifty Years tells the story from the exhibition of 1963 and traces the development of the School, through the impact of digitisation, the influence of RCA graduates on the creative industries and the role of graphic design in the future.

The exhibition features rarely seen works from the RCA archive, including typographic experiments, early examples from pioneers of digital design and print and designs made at the College by RCA alumni who have gone on to become leading practitioners.
