Beaver/ 2017 design Matteo Zorzenoni
An unusual beaver
The stylized trait of an endearing beaver is found in this unique furniture item, which can also be used as a plant pot.
The style that sets him apart and has made him one of the most promising Italian designers is the continuous study of the materials and being able to unlock their unexpected potential, like creating glasses made of concrete, glass structures, liquid metal tables… His projects have been showcased in some of the most important exhibitions worldwide including: Maxxi in Rome, Triennale di Milano, London Design Festival, Centre Pompidou and the Biennale of Architecture in Venice. Zorzenoni has been a lecturer at the University of Architecture of Venice IUAV, is currently working with the IED in Madrid and leads workshops for the Domaine de Boisbuchet (Vitra Design Museum). After a long experience as a consultant for Fabrica (since 2006) he currently works alongside Jaime Hayon following the Italian branch of the studio. In parallel, he continues his research into the world of high-quality craftsmanship and the creation of new projects for clients such as Cappellini, Mercedes Benz, Replay, Alcantara, Benetton, Bosa, Miniforms, Somethingood, Agusta Westland, MM Lampadari, Nason Moretti. Matteo Zorzenoni with Zaven and Giorgio Biscaro are the promoters of Something Good, a project which aims to create a platform for research on design and communication (www.somethinggood.it).
