Zanotta releases bold and creative expressions of contemporary design while continuing to pay homage to design history via the sensitively reissue of the Fenice table.
The Zanotta stand used a lush and leafy setting dotted with seven architectural settings to unveil a series of new designs and reissues.
New releases for 2016 include the lightly geometric and faceted June chair by Frank Rettenbacher. Also designed by Rettenbacher are the robust and slightly convex wooden stools Ido and Iro.
The stools' design were inspired by the classic Giotto stool by Zanotta that celebrated its 40th birthday in 2015.
David Williamson has designed two pieces - the modular Botero sofa and the Ruben bed.
The Botero sofa limits the visibility of its stitching, instead carefully folding exterior fabric around the stuffing. Slender feet provide a lovely constrast to the slightly puffy of the design.
The Niobe occasional table collection by Fedrica Capitani accentuates the timeless characteristics of a slab of marble. Formed out of slabs of Carrara, Marquinia or Emperador marble, the tabletop sits upon a minimalist slightly curved frame.
The qualities of marble are also in focus in a new version of the Reale table which gains the option of a marble top.
Fenice table is brought out of the archives
Zanotta has also introduced a re-edition of the Fenice table. Originally designed by Piero Bottoni in 1936 for the Villa Muggia, the revival of the piece has been possible due to new technology. Read more about the history of the table here.
In the past, a table of this volume would not be easy to move. The make it suit contemporary needs, the internal structure is made out of Polimex® while the new exterior surface mirrors that of the original through the use of a cement resin.
