Most of us look at wood as a warm material, elegant but also uncomfortable and hard. With contemporary techniques of carpentry, Zanini wanted, in this case, to subvert the theorem, floating in the middle of the solid material of demolition with a new proposal. Lines and sinuous curves suggest, in the three pieces of this limited series – armchair, bench and stool – an idea of material inflated and blown: “Inflated Wood”. The wood becomes so comfortable before to the eye and, immediately after, to the body. The noblest Brazilian woods, Ipé and Jacarandá, worked in their essence to find the warmth and sensuality of their soul without neglecting the typical character of strength and comfort. By signing “Reclaimed Woods_Limited Editions”, Zanini de Zanine designs and creates unique pieces or limited editions, handmade with sophisticated techniques of contemporary carpentry, a work addressed to collectors and design galleries. To escape from the frantic pace of industrial production and to recover precious legacy left by his father Jose Zanine Caldas, Zanini has developed since 2005 an authorial collection developed exclusively through the use of Brazilian solid woods from the demolition of old houses and fazendas. All furniture come from columns, beams, stairs and balustrades of old Brazilian houses. The tranquility of the small peaceful community in the west of Rio de Janeiro, which hosts from almost 10 years the workshop and showroom of this unique part of the work of Zanini, is an inexhaustible source of inspiration and makes a significant contribution to provide that strong emphasis of "brazilianness" that goes beside the nobility of local woods used with this signature.
