About the Item

2 Celestina chairs by Marco Zanuso for Zanotta, 1978, 1990s. Famous leather folding chairs with a high quality finish. Marco Zanuso (Milan, May 14, 1916 - Milan, July 11, 2001) was an Italian architect, designer, urban planner and academic. He is considered one of the founding fathers of Italian industrial design. Together with the BBPR studio group, Alberto Rosselli, Franco Albini, Marcello Nizzoli and the brothers Livio, Pier Giacomo and Achille Castiglioni, he contributed to the post-war debate on the "modern movement" in architecture and design. Zanuso was one of the very first to take an interest in the problems of product industrialization and in the application of new materials and technologies to everyday objects. Zanotta is an Italian company in the furniture sector, famous above all for its contribution to the evolution of Italian design in the fifties and sixties. Founded by Aurelio Zanotta, the company immediately began to involve well-known names in Italian design and architecture in the production process. The company's success in the field of design has been recognized with four Golden Compasses. Since 1989, the company has added a second line of products to the collection, Zanotta Edizioni, less tied to industrial design and more influenced by applied art. The production for this line is largely carried out with artisan techniques, and is in a limited series. Zanotta produces with different technologies, without being bound to a single type of material or process like other companies in the same sector (for example, Bonacina Pierantonio or Kartell), ranging from metals to plastics, stones, fabrics and wood. After the death of Aurelio Zanotta in 1991, the company remained in the family. Since 2002 it has been managed by Zanotta's three children, Eleonora, Francesca and Martino. In 2017, the Italian furniture company Tecno of Giuliano Mosconi bought 80% of Zanotta's shares. However, the two companies maintain separate manufacturing, design and management facilities.
