Zanini de Zanine

Available exclusively in the UK through ESPASSO, the new collection by Zanine beautifully demonstrates the designer’s artful approach to craftsmanship, while showcasing the very best in contemporary Brazilian design. The Couro bench and Pipa coffee table are truly one-of-a-kind pieces, handcrafted from reclaimed Ipê wood, with the former also featuring sling-like seating made from natural leather. The Joá stool combines contrasting Maçaranduba and Ipê antique wood columns, resulting in a powerfully sculptural yet minimal design.

Zanine was named ‘Designer of the Year’ by Maison&Objet at its first US satellite show, Maison&Objet Americas in 2015. Such recognition is a major distinction, with honours previously awarded to international designers including Zaha Hadid, Jean Nouvel and Philippe Starck.
