Zanini de Zanine has designed a limited edition collection for Espasso 

Coinciding with the launch of the Brazilian designer’s new book, the collection was debuted at the recent London Design Festival. Previously named designer of the year by Maison & Objet at its first US satellite show, Zanine’s new collection demonstrates his artful approach to carpentry and is handcrafted from reclaimed wood.

Imperfections from the wood’s original use can be seen in the pieces, being preserved rather than concealed, so as to retain the lineage of the material. Handcrafted joints and dowels are employed, while the designs themselves feature strong lines juxtaposed with curved edges and solid forms. Employing the designer’s ‘Contemporary Carpentry’, each of the products re-imagine traditional furniture, by incorporating a range of new shapes into their design.

The Balanço chaise features a gentle sway that counterposes the weight of the solid wood as its ergonomic angles comfortably contour the body. While the Peroba bench is a truly one-of-a-kind piece, handcrafted from reclaimed Peroba wood, the Anil armchair playfully explores the notions of hard and soft as its seat and back – beautifully sculpted from reclaimed Ipê wood – resembling a plush upholstered design.
