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 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 the extraordinary history and spirit of this company contemporary, which has contributed to the international confirmation of tje excellence of Italian design.
