Matteo Zorzenoni was born in Treviso, Italy. He is now considered one of the most promising Italian designers, and focuses his research on the continuous study of material and on the discovery of their unexpected potentials. This incessant exploration of material elements allows him to create products with a non-conventional soul, such as glasses made of cement, structures in glass, and tables in liquid metal.
For Cappellini, Zorzenoni is the signature behind the design of the Frac armchair and the Crystal Ball vase collection.
His projects have been selected for some of the most important museums and exhibitions such as the Maxi in Rome, the Triennale in Milan, London Design Festival, The Biennale di Architettura di Venezia and the Centre Pompidou.
After a long experience as a consultant for Fabrica since 2006, he is currently working alongside Jaime Hayon and managing the Italian branch of the studio. Additionally, he continues his research in the world of high quality artisanship and dedicates himself to the creation of new projects for clients such as Cappellini, Mercedes Benz, Replay, Benetton, Alcantara, Bosa Ceramiche, Miniforms, Somethingood, and AgustaWestland.
