Zio family by Marcel Wanders for MOOOI
The Zio family is the collaboration between designer Marcel Wanders and MOOOI. The collection includes a Dining and coffee table, a buffet, a chair along with armchair and its footstool.
The collection has a retro feel and one can see a Scandinavian inspiration. The Zio Dining Table which is intended to be the dining room centrepiece has a graceful look and refined details. The Zio Dining Chairs seem to fit perfectly well with with their solid, sculptured wooden structure and soft cushioned body.
The Lounge Chair have that same solid aspect with smooth armrests and the footstool to provide even more comfort in a reclined position. The Zio Coffee Table has a rounded silhouette and sharp looks come in two sizes, in order to fit for any space. The collection also include a Buffet meant to store away serious paperwork, endearing photographs and “pieces of past memories”. All the pieces were designed by MOOOI cofounder and Artistic Director, Marcel Wanders.
