Born in Rio de Janeiro in 1978, Zanini de Zanine grew up watching his father, José Zanine Caldas work. He trained with Sergio Rodrigues when he produced his first mobile. In 2002 he graduated in Industrial Design at PUC-Rio. From 2003, he began producing solid wood furniture, with pieces of demolition — columns, beams, and posts of old houses — baptized as “Contemporary Carpentry.” From 2005, he began to create a new line of furniture pieces produced industrially using controlled origin wood and different materials such as plastic, acrylic, metals and other parts of manufactured products. To represent this new furniture line, Zanini creates in 2011 Studio Zanini.
