Zanotta was founded by Aurelio Zanotta in 1954 with the initial focus being the production of sofas and armchairs.

Zanotta saw a gap in the market for a new form of cultural expression. This instinct saw the company come into contact with some of the most legendary icons of Italian design. 

With over 200 designs currently available from 131 different designers from 18 different countries Zanetta manages to achieve a distinct degree of design diversity. A common thread of Zanotta’s catalogue is an incredible flair for originality.
