The range of novelties has added eleven innovative furnishing elements, including three of the Maserati by Zanotta collection. Three young designers joint our team thanks to their products.
At the International Furniture Fair (53rd edition) Zanotta launched a range of pieces with innovative and original design. The care put in the production and finishes, along with the research for new typologies and layout solutions got a quite positive response by dealers, by the press and the audience. Customization and comfort are the added values to a design that wants to meet the contemporary life-styles. This happened within a successful Salone that had a wide attendance by visitors (about 360.000), most of them were trade professionals (311.000) and with a very large fair surface (340.000 square meters). These is a comforting information in such a period of global crisis, supported by the growing synergy between the Fair and more than hundred side events and workshops in the city, that caused a strong interest by the foreign audience. Buyers, journalists and designers had the chance to touch with hand the high level of creativity and innovation by one of the best Italian production company. Inside the Zanotta “home” one could really feel the sense of recovery and the new enthusiasm of this edition. At the booth designed by Bertero-Panto-Marzoli Studio and styled by Ludovica+Roberto Palomba the contemporary colours and shapes highlighted the many production novelties, starting with two new sofa ranges designed by the Swedish designer Anna von Schewen (Undercover collection) and by Ludovica+Roberto Palomba (Scott collection) respectively. The first one impressed for the new tailoring concept that matches the living room: a textile design that put the accent on the interchangeable use of cushions. The Scott sofas designed by the Palomba’s stood out for the avant-garde line and the option to be fit for a flexible use of spaces thanks to the addition of small shelves and bookcases, both useful and versatile, that may support conversation and relaxation.
By the young Austrian designer Frank Rettenbacher two light and versatile accessories like the console table Mina and the small table Emil, that brought again on top a slender identity reminding the furniture from the Seventies. Zanotta has launched the Nuno stool, by the Japanese Kensaku Oshiro, a remarkable, textured complement inspired by the work of saddlers, with the dual function of sculpture/stool and pouf/storage. Arom is the new armchair by the French designer Noé Duchaufour Lawrance: an object that combines the comfort of a traditional armchair with an organic and floral design. Another Zanotta 2014 novelty is the Agio bed, by Ludovica+Roberto Palomba, an ideal development of the Bruce sofa with its important shape and comfortable upholstery. Last but not least, the Twist stool by Emilio Nanni, an object created to add a touch of décor to modern interior design: over 100 meters of bi-coloured cord entirely woven by hand represent a strong aesthetical sign of this original and wide-ranging seat.
The Maserati by Zanotta project expands
The co-brand collection launched by the two companies and inspired by the famous Maserati cars, after the first piece Grandtour lounge chair, now has three additional pieces designed by Ludovica+Roberto Palomba in the “Maserati by Zanotta Capsule collection”. The Grandtour pouf, which completes the lounge chair, goes into production as a limited series. The Corina chair, elegant and comfortable, with a convex leather cover with seaming creating an ergonomic line of the leather sling, reminding the car seats; the third piece in the collection is the Maestrale table-desk, available in two refined versions: one, more simple and textured with Canaletto walnut top, and one more elegant and tactile, with a top covered in cowhide pigmentato.
