Zanotta, established in 1954, is one of the recognized leaders in Italian industrial design. Guided by the insight and wonderful entrepreneurship abilities of the founder, Aureilio Zanotta, beginning in the 1960s it won and has held the international spotlight. This was thanks to its products: emblematic for both their formal and technological innovations. Internationally famed architects and designers have always been called in to create the products. Some of them are: Achille Castiglioni, Gae Aulenti, Marco Zanuso, Ettore Sottsass, Joe Colombo, Alessandro Mendini, Andrea Branzi,Carlo Mollino, Bruno Munari, Alfredo Haberli, Werner Asslinger and Ross Lovegrove. Today’s collection comprises these furniture types: armchairs, sofas, storage units, bookcases, chairs, tables, coffee-tables and furnishing accessories. Diverse manufacturing technologies are employed. In 1989 the “Zanotta Edizioni” collection was added to our line; these furnishing objects are close to applied art. Freed from the constraints of mass-production, the collection’s articles are handmade to a great extent. By harking back to the most significant facets of Italy’s artistic craft tradition, they revive and rework disused techniques, like mosaic, inlay and painted decorations. The pieces in the “Zanotta Edizioni” are supposed to be selected and loved, as one picks and loves paintings, sculptures, rugs and tapestries. They, too, are destined to expressively enhance the home. Lastly, this small-batch or numbered and limited edition will augment their value over time.
Zanotta is sold in Milan by Spotti.
