22/09/2021 - During the Milan Design Week 2021, the Zanotta House Milano in Piazza XXV Aprile has presented the new Intimacy furniture collection. Intimacy tells the story of living spaces that change over time, sharing their existence and transformations. In continuity with 2020's Back to emotions collection, Intimacy interprets the need for authentic, concrete design expressed in objects full of meaning, functional but with a soul, conceived to accompany us throughout our lives.
Intimacy is a wide ranging collection, made of an innovative new product and a number of extensions to existing important product ranges already in the catalogue.
Ambrosiano, the new modular table for residential and contract applications, designed by Studio Mist-o – the exciting Italian/Japanese design duo – reinterprets the conventional trestle table in a contemporary key as a system with a large number of tops in different materials and innumerable configurations.
Tweed Mini, low tables designed by Garcia Cumini to accompany large island sofas, whose forms and finishes match the dining table collection of the same name launched in 2017.
Pianoalto, the collection of longseller sofas designed by Ludovica+Roberto Palomba, has been expanded with two new curved elements which make possible completely new sinuous, open configurations, ideal for waiting rooms and common areas in hotels and offices.
Dan outdoor, the chair designed by Patrick Norguet and launched in 2020, with its coloured elastic strap structure, is now also available in an outdoors version to confirm its iden- tity as ideal for both the home and contract applications.
Maggiolina, Marco Zanuso's iconic armchair, returns to the catalogue in an original version with fabric cushions.
Sustainability is also central to the company's research into fabrics, with three new exclusive Zanotta
innovations launched in 2021, made of regenerated yarns like recycled cotton, natural fibres like linen and long-lasting yarns like acrylic chenille, with its outstanding physical and mechanical performance.
To tell the story of Intimacy, Zanotta has chosen once more to use animated illustrations, with a multi-episode miniseries by Giulia Conoscenti narrated by Mavì Cerenza. The miniseries tells the story of Alice and Noah, from their childhoods to adulthood, recounting fragments of their everyday lives until they finally meet.
This development confirms the empathy, flexibility and durability of Zanotta products and their ability to adapt to us as we and our living spaces change, remaining faithful companions in the lives we share. The use of strong colours is key to the description of the relationships between people and the objects they surround themselves with.
