When Aurelio Zanotta opened the doors to his eponymous label in 1954, its initial focus was on the production of sofas and armchairs which, at the time, were overpoweringly the domain of upholstery workshops. But Zanotta’s vision far surpassed the largely utilitarian choice of local upholsterers. Beyond its surface functionality, he recognized in furniture design a new form of cultural expression, a cherished creative expression worthy of the same respect given to traditional artistic activities such as painting and sculpture.
