Giorgia Zanellato (Venice, 1987) and Daniele Bortotto (Pordenone, 1988), designers, both studied Industrial Design at the IUAV in Venice and went on to take a Master’s Degree in Product Design at the ECAL in Lausanne (Switzerland). Giorgia Zanellato then joined the team at Fabrica – Benetton Research Centre (Treviso), while Daniele Bortotto started to work for the Swiss designer Adrien Rovero. After thus completing their training, the two designers came together on their first joint collection, the Acqua Alta series, dedicated to the city of Venice and presented at the Milan Salone Satellite in 2013. The following year they designed the Serenissima collection for Moroso, an industrial design project in which Venice’s colours and structural features become the inspiration for furniture, fabrics and ornaments.
In line with a design method that investigates space-time relationships and identifies the signs of history in the hidden recesses of the familiar places where daily life is lived, for CEDIT Giorgia Zanellato and Daniele Bortotto present the Storie collection, comprising six different sets of wall coverings, inscribed by the young designers with the theme of the relentless passage of time.
