Lecture with Martino Zanotta-September 22, 2010 at CCA 7pm

This coming Wednesday, September 22, California College of the Arts' Furniture Program and DZINE will be hosting an evening with Martino Zanotta, the President and CEO of Zanotta SpA. For over 50 years Zanotta has collaborated with internationally famed designers and architects from all over the world and produced many influential pieces. This night will be truly inspiring and should not be missed. For more information please visit the CCA website.

We have also added a few new pieces to our Zanotta display.

The William is a new collection by British designer Damian Williamson. It responds to two basic needs: the sense of touch and proportion. The design of the William stems from the idea of deconstructing the sofa into "comfort layers", not just visually but also in practice, beginning from the structural bottom layer, moving up to the central layer of polyurethane foam and finally to the soft top layer made of goose down. The resulting three layers provide a unique and inviting detail, as they seem to be floating atop die-cast aluminum legs. The William was presented at the Milan Furniture Fair this past April and is already a success. Included in the collection are sofas, an armchair, ottoman, and day bed.

The Sacco, designed over 40 years ago by 3 architects from Turin, Giatti, Cesare Paolini, and Franco Teodoro, is truly an iconic piece. It has received several international awards, was exhibited in 1972 at the MOMA in New York, and today is part of the permanent collection of 26 international museums. While there have been many imitators over the years, there is only one original and authentic Sacco.

The Lia/Lio collection has been a popular staple in the DZINE showroom, thanks to its stylish yet comfortable design. Designed by Roberto Barbieri, the collection was a remarkable innovation in chair design, reducing the construction to a simple aluminum frame with a removable cover. Our newest additions include Lia dining chairs and Lio bar stools, part of the complete collection of 9 chairs and stools.
