One of the most acclaimed high end Italian furniture designers of our time, Zanotta Design Company has a story filled with passion, innovation and achievements. Like a map, the story of Zanotta documents their rise to success and fame. When Aurelio Zanotta launched the industrial furniture design Company Zanotta, it was 1954 in a township called Nova Milanese in northern Italy where the doors of the company first opened. Little did anyone know that Zanotta was on the brink of starting a revolutionary period within the Italian furniture design industry. Beginning with the production of mostly sofas and armchairs, the 1960’s brought on a creative wave of experimentation with technology as well as unique scales and proportions in furniture design. The designs from this decade catapulted Zanotta into global recognition. By 1989 the premiere collection Zanotta Edizioni was released and art lovers rejoiced. The Qualty Industrial Furniture Zanotta introduced to the world was beyond any furniture of its time. Most pieces from this first collection were made by hand and seen as magnificent works of art.

An exceptional assembly of designers and architects have seized opportunities to work with Zanotta, such as Gae Aulenti, Achille Castiglioni, Marco Zanuso, Ettore Sottsass, Ross Lovegrove, Alessandro Mendini, and Joe Colombo. These partnerships created masterpieces not only found in museums but also writings in many books and in showroom from over 60 countries.

Zanotta Italian industrial furniture is known for its high end finishes and quality. This is accomplished in the production phase with the assistance of the latest, hi-tech manufacturing equipment. Continuous research on technology and materials keeps Zanotta designing for the future while still working with materials like wood, leather, marble, metal, plastic, and glass gives appreciation to the past and present. Innovative ideas are applied to every aspect of the company and directly into the furniture collections. This can be seen in designs like the Bolero Sofa by Zanotta. The Modular Bolero Sofa and Pouf by Zanotta is described as a monobloc, with a solid form. It is the interior tufting which envelops the back cushions that gives the Bolero Sofa a personality that is humble yet provocative. Polished, painted black aluminum alloy or upholstered in a cowhide pigment are the options for the delicate feet that hold up its steel frame. Cushions are encased in graduated polyurethane/ heat-bound polyester fibre with an elastic strips suspension. Decide between fabric or leather removable covers.
