Founded in 1954 by Aurelio Zanotta, the company belongs to a group of companies that have given "made in Italy" its fame worldwide.
Zanotta has brought fun, beauty and innovation to the field of home furnishings. For example, the Sacco armchair, designed by Piero Gatti, Cesare Paolini and Franco Teodoro in 1968, was featured in a comedy film with Ugo Fantozzi, who, in a scene in the film struggles to sit in the chair. Sacco was the first beanbag chair and was a sack filled with small polystyrene balls that made the chair adapt to the shape of the person sitting in it. Other famous products include the Mezzadro stool and the Leonardo work table, designed by Achille in 1969.
Zanotta captures social changes underway and translates them into products designed to last a lifetime as faithful companions.
The company's history is one of intuition and courage, and they boast a catalogue of over 500 products. In 2017, the company was taken over by Giuliano Mosconi, formerly the chairman of Tecno. In 2020, the Carlo Mollino collection was relaunched.
Among Giuliano Mosconi's goals is to keep this company's extraordinary history and spirit contemporary, which has contributed to the international confirmation of the excellence of Italian design.
