2017. Tecno e Zanotta. Un disegno comune.
Tecno and Zanotta have two parallel stories, and they have decided to share their uniqueness, reputation and credibility to boost growth in the main international markets, aiming for a comprehensive offer for the contract and office system, the reference area of Tecno, as well as for the home and hospitality area, a sector in which Zanotta has always excelled.
Tecno and Zanotta, two companies that in their respective journeys have given meaning to the Italian design industry, with a highly anticipatory approach to the market in terms of innovation, both in terms of aesthetic and functional research and in attention to representing the values of Italian design and know-how.
Tecno has blended design and innovation from the beginning (1953), involving all stages of design, from the product to the installation. Tecno’s distinguishing features are its high-quality workmanship and continuous technological innovation, which in 2016 led to the creation of io.T “The intelligence of Tecno”, the first intelligent system of connected and interconnected furnishings. From the beginning (1954), Zanotta made a strategic foundation for its development on creativity, research and innovation in design, on product quality, functionality, comfort and life, making this its most recognisable element, and on the concept that profit and culture could be made simultaneously. More than 298 Zanotta products, the result of the collaboration of 128 designers, are now present in 50 museums worldwide.
Today Tecno and Zanotta are undertaking a common project that permits improved synergies and commercial possibilities at an international level and will be managed with the most wide-ranging respect for the particular characters and identities of the two brands.
