Pricing: price does not include VAT Marco Zanini graduated in Architecture from the University of Florence in 1976 and completed his studies in the United States. In 1977 he began collaborating with Ettore Sottsass in Milan. Zanini was one of the co-founders of Memphis in 1981, and designed works for all the collections. He designs ceramics, jewelry, furniture, and blown-glass objects. Founder together with Sottsass of Sottsass Associati, he is the Design Manager for many projects: office furniture for well-known brands, residential interiors, showroom interiors, exhibition design, street furniture and industrial products for a wide range of clients in Italy and abroad. He works as architect and designer in Japan, the United States, Australia, New Zealand, Colombia, Chile, and Spain. His works are to be found in numerous museums and private collections. Zanini holds frequent conferences on industrial design. Today he lives and works in São Paulo, Brazil. Memphis is the great cultural phenomenon of the 1980s that revolutionized creative and commercial logics in design. Born from the idea of Ettore Sottsass and a group of young designers and architects, in Milan, coupled in the years by famous designers from the international scene, Memphis turned upside down all of the existing parameters on living. Ettore Sottsass as the backbone of the group, design gained a new concept and expression through new shapes, materials and patterns, expanding the creative limits of the industry. Memphis became a symbol of New Design. Its influence is still clear in various sectors of production and beyond.
