Lagoa, designed by Zanini De Zanine
Zanini de Zanine, the famous Brazilian designer, son of architect and designer José Zanine Caldas, creates an absolutely original model, conceived exclusively for Tacchini: Lagoa.
Its soft, rounded forms surround a suspended seat that gives a marked contrast in terms of thickness. The ends of the seat slot into the sides of the structure, disappearing into a seamless natural embrace. A piece that shows brilliant, original creativity, drawing inspiration from the softness of the Carioca tradition, with an all-new visionary spirit.
Designed by Zanini De Zanine
Born in Rio de Janeiro in 1978, Zanini de Zanine grew up watching his father, José Zanine Caldas work. He trained with Sergio Rodrigues, when he produced his first mobile. In 2002 he graduated in Industrial Design at PUC-Rio. From 2003, he began producing solid wood furniture, with pieces of demolition — columns, beams and posts of old houses — baptized as “Contemporary Carpentry.” From 2005, he began to create a new line of furniture pieces produced industrially using controlled origin wood and different materials such as plastic, acrylic, metals and other parts of manufactured products. To represent this new furniture line, Zanini creates in 2011 Studio Zanini.
