monica förster’s ‘unna’ lounge chair and ‘neron’ dining table for zanat, are characterised by their intricate hand-carved patterns. the furniture which was presented at salone del mobile, expresses a classic timeless quality combining modern design with traditional craftsmanship. ‘unna’ is made from solid wood and contains an elegant silhouette which imparts a feeling of softness and comfort to the lounge chair. the piece showcases zanet’s close attention to carpentry detail, using a complex engraved pattern that follows the frame of the backrest. the ‘neron’ dinning table employs a similar method, using a sculpted decoration that covers all of the table legs. these embellishments can be customised giving each table a unique persona. ‘neron’ comes in three standard dimensions, five different species of wood in a natural color or stained.
