During the Salone del Mobile (Milan Furniture Fair), Zanotta and Maserati will unveil a leather lounge chair “Maserati by Zanotta” that is created by Ludovica and Roberto Palomba.
The lounge chair was conceived as an homage to the new Maserati Quattroporte, designed by Marco Tencone at the Centro Stile Maserati. The design duo then developed the chair from the elegant shapes of the vehicle, enhancing its nature of a mobile lounge. The harmonious, dashing lines of the Maserati Quattroporte were analyzed, broken down, reproduced and reinterpreted by the Palombas until the shape of the lounge chair Maserati by Zanotta emerged, thus opening the seat to travel in a new dimension.
“The Maserati Lounge Chair by Zanotta is an article that has a considerable component of craftsmanship and manual work; we imagined it almost as if it was ‘a unique piece’. We took up the perspective image of a Maserati in the lines, retracing the fluid structure of the silhouette of the bonnet to give the mark of continuity,” the Palombas noted.
The leather lounge chair covering has a natural feel that came from the softness of the gloves of racing car drivers. The covering itself uses the Extra Zanotta leather that is the highest quality of raw hides that, in its natural form, gives the leather the authenticity and naturalness.

Filling: High resistance polyurethane and Dacron DuPont padding
