It’s been two years now since we first met Mr Carlo Zilio, who co-owns the Zilio company with his father Aldo, a company which has been manufacturing wooden chairs in Corno di Rosazzo, in Friuli’s famous Chair Triangle zone for sixty years. And in these past two years the company has grown, step by step, enough to win the prestigious Interior Innovation Award in Cologne last January with the Seleri chair, designed by the London studio Mentsen, which also handles its art direction. Then in February, Zilio A&C
presented a new chair during the Stockholm Design Week, Pur, this time designed by Note Design Studio, a team including some of the most innovative, well-respected architects and designers on the Swedish scene in recent years. These commendable results and the desire to establish the brand in Italy led us to meet up again and define our collaboration. Brand notoriety that needs constructing on many sharp design products with extraordinarily precise craftsmanship – this is an exciting project which we’re going to be working on with great passion, as usual!
