Zinta, designed by Lievore Altherr Molina, was selected for ADI Design Index 2015 edition, the prestigious publication edited by ADI Association for Industrial Design, which every year gathers the best of Italian design. Graphic, lightweight and fluid, Zinta is a modular sofa system defined by the harmonious juxtaposition of smooth lines and warm materials. Its deep seat perfectly supports the casual recline of the body. Its system of variable lengths and gentle angles allows it to weave through a space with subtle dexterity. It can serve as simple, single sofa or large-scale organizing principle in an open space. With a range of cushion options with diverse materials and fillings, it can serve a range of environments from residential to restaurant, lounge to office with equal ease.
Zinta is comprised of wood shell linedgathers in pads for contract or cushions for a more accommodating seat in a select group of fabrics. Diverse sizes, materials and fill allow for diverse combinations and applications. Shells are available in wood veneer in natural, brown and dark oak. Still base and aluminium legs are painted in dark grey color. Optional plywood armrests are available. Diverse lengths and angles allow for endless combinations.
The ADI Design Index 2015 was presented last Monday, 5 October in Milan at ADI for EXPO, where products selected will be also part of an exhibition until 9 October and will later move to Rome. Here they will be displayed at the Botanical Garden from 16 to 25 October.
Being part of ADI Design Index is the first step to participate in the Compasso d'Oro competition, internationally renowned design prize, assigned by ADI every 2 years. The next Compasso d’Oro will be awarded in 2016, Zinta will be in the competition.
