Zanotta, in collaboration with the festival Weekendoit and the showroom Contemporaneo has promoted a contest of ideas involving a selection of professional Italian illustrators for realizing 4 new coverings for the Sacco’s 50th anniversary.
This initiative aims to underline once more the pop aspect that has been featuring this design icon since 1968 when it was conceived. Weekendoit is the first festival in Italy dedicated to sharing and learning the artisanal, traditional and ground-breaking techniques.
The event, now in its fifth edition, is held within the building of Mole Vanvitelliana in Ancona and encourages the values of handmade culture and the design, proposing to shorten the gap among the audience, craftsmanship and companies thanks to a broad programme of workshops, both practical and theoretical, laboratories, market, events, shows, formation and network.
Here are the selected illustrators to design the new covering for the Sacco easy chairs:
Raffaele Primitivo with the pattern “love flaming”
Ilaria Faccioli with the pattern “afro black/white”
Enrica Mannari with the pattern “clip art”
Antonio Colomboni with the pattern “fishes”
The Saccos will be displayed for the duration of the festival (July 18 to 22) in the Hall of Auditorium Tamburi at Mole Vanvitelliana, in the showroom Contemporaneo in Piazza del Papa Ancona, then will leave to Milan where they will be showcased at the Zanotta showroom.
