Renato Zamberlan was born in the Venetian province in 1970. After his studies in Business Administration at Ca\’ Foscari University of Venice, he took a path that led him to combine business with creativity in various sectors, from photography to graphic design and from art to refined publishing. He collaborates not only with the Art\’è Group and the prestigious Franco Maria Ricci publishing house but also with multinational manufacturing and chemical corporations.
His multidisciplinary training and a constant search for new stimuli led him to approach the world of furniture in 2012. He began working with Horm as Sales Manager for the Italian and North/South American markets. Almost simultaneously, he contributed with his creativity by designing some of the brand\’s most successful commercial products.
In 2014, he became a partner of the Group. Since 2015, he has taken on the role of Artistic Director. He brands stylistic choices that led the company to obtain valuable prizes and awards such as the Good Design Award (2014), Red Dot Design Award (2016), ADI Design Index (2015, 2016), Second Place at the Archiproducts Design Awards (2016), and Honorable Mention at the Compasso d\’Oro (2016) in which Horm has won for the seventh time in its short existence.
In this capacity, he directs the stylistic lines of both Group brands (Horm and Casamania) being aware that creativity, technology, production and the different needs of the various international markets in which the company operates are elements of a single whole.
He travels constantly to meet the commercial partners of the Group that exports to over 80 countries around the world. This, plus his daily dialogue with the technical and production areas of the company are the cornerstones on which his idea of design is founded. According to him, a design must excite and innovate without affecting the functionality and productive ethics.
In 2017, he assumed the position of Chairman of the Board of Directors of Horm Italia Srl.
