Zanotta, a historic Italian company which was recently acquired by Cassina SpA, presents some brand new pieces with contemporary and eye-catching shapes at the 2023 edition of the Design Week, including the Nena Lounge chair and the Bol table, new additions to three existing collections, the re-edition of the historic Gaelotta, and a special numbered edition to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Sciangai 50 coat stand.
Emphasis on colours and research on materials represent the basis of Zanotta's new vision of design.
With its folding and adjustable multicoloured lacquered beech frame, the exclusive numbered edition of the Sciangai 50 coat stand turns 50 years old. This iconic object, designed by De Pas, D'Urbino and Lomazzi in 1973 and inspired by the classic Chinese board game, is now enhanced with bright colours. Each of the eight poles is in fact painted in a distinct shade, revealing its timeless versatility. With its specially-shaped upper part, Sciangai 50 is extremely easy to use and serves as an excellent stand for clothing and accessories.
Consisting of three irregular blocks that allow you to arrange the structure into different configurations, the Galeotta modular armchair joins Zanotta's catalouge in a new version revisited with modern materials and new dimensions compared to the original design. Designed in 1968 by Jonathan De Pas, Donato D'Urbino and Paolo Lomazzi, it remains a functional and innovative piece of furniture that can change the way of experiencing the home. Lacking a support structure and internal mechanisms, Galeotta can be opened and extended to form a practical chaise longue, while the backrest module can be adjusted in two different inclinations.
With its strong personality, the new Nena Lounge chair has a striking bulky yet lightweight form where comfortable and sinuous upholstered elements meet a slender tubular steel frame, available in black or graphite varnish, which emphasises the chair's silhouette lending it a slender look. The semi-circular backrest feels like a gentle embrace, and also serves as a comfortable armrest.
Designed by Lanzavecchia + Wai and included in Zanotta's Nena family of chairs, Nena Lounge is also ergonomically perfect, allowing you to sit comfortably for long periods of time.
Designed by Marco Zavagno and Enrica Cavarzan who drew inspiration from the classic circular element with a central leg, the Bol table results from the combination of one or more modules, beautifully reflecting the brand's experimental approach. Presented among Zanotta's 2023 new arrivals, it includes two tables with a circular matt MDF top available in the same colours as the base with a diameter of 135 and 160 cm and two oval tables with a 230 and 260 cm top. These essential geometric volumes can be transformed into visually impacting shapes, providing an asymmetrical and highly distinctive effect. The contemporary shades of talc, caramel and algae enhance the interplay of shadows and reflections, creating a new interpretation of retro furniture.
Conceived as a soft, enveloping sculpture, the Bumper collection of polyurethane sofas consists of three overlapping layers that convey Zanotta's style and shapes. The base, the seat with its single wide and deep cushion, and the low backrest with removable cover are modelled on sinuous lines with careful attention to detail and supreme quality. It suits any residential or contract space, and can also be placed in a central position as an eye-catching element inviting you to relax. Available in monobloc and modular versions, Bumper can be designed to fit the available space by adding end elements, ottomans and corner pieces.
