shortlisted for wallpaper* designer of the year award 2013
Although the veteran italian designer has worked throughout his career with big-name brands such as Moroso and Knoll, it was his latest creations thar really caught our eye. Rota’s classic simplicity is an exercise in restraint and sophistication, which he applied to refined outdoor loungers, a concrete table and a sofa for Paola Lenti; a modular coffee table inspired by the tangram puzzle for Lema; a geometric stool for Living Divani; and a series of Plexiglas lamps for Oluce - all simple, effective and executed with ease. rota has long been under-appreciated, but we think that is about to change.
