Established in 1954, Zanotta is one of the recognized leaders in Italian industrial design since ever. Guided by the insight and wonderful entrepreneurship abilities of the founder, Aurelio Zanotta, starting from the 1960s it won and has held the international spotlight, thanks to its products: these are emblematic from the viewpoint of formal innovation as well as of technological research, aiming at a continuous evolution in the materials quality and in the production processes. The cultured and precious history of Zanotta is renewed in 2017 thanks to the union with Tecno, launching a common project for the two brands with the consequent strengthening of international synergies and commercial strategies under the leadership of Giuliano Mosconi, President and CEO of the two brands.
Today, many of these iconic silhouettes, inflected with more than a note of irony, continue to reflect the larger-than-life spirit of the brand’s founder and namesake, Aurelio Zanotta, a consummate businessman with an instinctual flair for injecting beauty, ingenuity, and whimsy into daily life. Incorporating the lessons of rigorous material and formal R&D, his is a recipe and legacy that has conquered the vicissitudes of trend and promises to withstand the test of time.
Among the original progenitors and standard bearers of Italian furniture design—the intrepid canaries when home furnishing was little more than a utilitarian cave—Zanotta has carved out an all but untouchable place in the ranks of contemporary luxury. The first to grace its catalogue with works by some of the industry’s boldest names, in sixty years Zanotta’s amassed a veritable pantheon of award-winning designs, with almost a fifth residing in permanent museum displays.
