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.
He received the most prestigious Design awards in Brazil and abroad for creating furnitures in both segments and exhibited in major national and international events in the area. Today Zanini sign pieces to large national and international brands such as Tolix (France), Poltrona Frau, Cappellini and Slamp (Italy) and Espasso (USA).
Selected Designer of the Year by Maison & Objet Americas 2015.
"I have always wanted my style to reflect my homeland in Brazil through global exchanges, technological experimentation, and the fusion of handcrafted process applied to industrial design. These design approaches have allowed me, over time, to translate my country’s culture and identify the unmistakable characteristics intrinsic to each object: proportion and functionality. A lighting installation should enrich a space, giving it aesthetic value and functional ease. Light should bring beauty to the object that houses it, respecting the object’s identity and the necessities of those who have chosen it for their personal space."
