Zanotta成立于1954年，是意大利工业设计领域公认的领导者之一。在创始人奥雷里奥·扎诺塔(Aurelio Zanotta)的洞察力和出色的创业能力的引导下，从20世纪60年代开始，该公司获得了成功，并成为国际关注的焦点。这要归功于它的产品:象征着它们的正式和技术创新。上世纪80年代末，奥雷里奥·扎诺塔(Aurelio Zanotta)对自己的成功做出了如下解释。“在上世纪五六十年代，家具和家具配件行业充满了创造力。一些目前在工业设计领域处于领先地位的公司已经获得了国际地位，他们敏锐地抓住了设计和制造问题的关键。同时创造利润和文化是可能的。”国际知名的建筑师和设计师总是被邀请来创造产品。其中有:Achille Castiglioni, Gae Aulenti, Marco Zanuso, Ettore Sottsass, Joe Colombo, Alessandro Mendini, Andrea Branzi, Giuseppe Terragni, Carlo Mollino, De Pas-D'Urbino-Lomazzi, Enzo Mari, Bruno Munari, Alfredo Häberli, Roberto Barbieri和Ross Lovegrove…今天的收藏品包括这些家具类型:扶手椅、沙发、床、存储单元、书架、椅子、桌子、咖啡桌和家具配件。 Diverse manufacturing technologies are employed. In harmony with the corporate philosophy aimed at R&D, they allow the advanced use of a host of materials, like metals (aluminum alloy, stainless steel, brass, bronze, etc.), plastics, glass, marble, granite, wood, fabrics and leather. In 1989 the "Zanotta Edizioni" collection was added to our line; these furnishing objects are close to applied art. Freed from the constraints of mass-production, the collection's articles are handmade to a great extent. By harking back to the most significant facets of Italy's artistic craft tradition, they revive and rework disused techniques, like mosaic, inlay and painted decorations. This small-batch and/or numbered and limited edition will augment their value over time. Many of our pieces' forms rise above the triteness of the threadbare expressions or represent creations that went against the tide. So many creations are mentioned in design history books and displayed at the world's major museums (New York's MoMA and Metropolitan Museum, the Paris Centre George Pompidou, the London Design Museum, Berlin's Arts and Crafts Museum, the Vitra Design Museum in Weil am Rhein, the Israel Museum in Jerusalem, etc.). Zanotta has received legions of prizes for its achievements. They include three Compasso d'Oro Awards: in 1968 for the Guscio hut designed by Roberto Menghi; in 1979 for De Pas-D'Urbino-Lomazzi's Sciangai clothes-stand; and in 1987 for Enzo Mari's Tonietta chair. Over time, our company has backed a multitude of experimental endeavors and cultural undertakings to promote the development and dissemination of concepts tied to the creation of household artifacts. Zanotta participates early in countless exhibitions and shows in the sector of industrial design, art, architecture and fashion. This intense cultural promotion of the collection boosts its manufacturing. Currently the firm's collections are distributed in over sixty nations.
