We have the pleasure of introducing Zava Officine Italiane Design to Luxxdesign.com.
Zava was founded in 1992 from the creative talent and visionary energy of its owner, Franco Zavarise. Since then, Zava’s story has been one of ongoing achievement, built on strong, deep-rooted values that contribute to its unique manufacturing capacity. Today, the company is considered a true master of 100% Italian production.
TRADITION & DESIGN IN LIGHTING
Following his natural instinct for design, Franco Zavarise combined his extensive experience in metalworking with a great passion for lighting from the outset. At his plant, traditional craftsmanship and the latest technology go hand in hand, while the work outlined by the latest-generation machinery is modeled through skilled, irreplaceable manual processing. This combination results in a varied collection of lighting products, whose distinctive features are a focus on design, creativity and great attention to detail. A collection of lamps with a clear-cut personality, whose uniqueness lies in the blend between the hardness, consistency and expressive power of iron and the impalpable lightness of light.
ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY AND CARE FOR THE ENVIRONMENT
Zava is a company with deep roots in traditional manufacturing in the local area and, at the same time, it is fundamentally linked to the values of respect, preservation and care for the unique environment in which the company has developed, the province of Treviso. It is for this reason that, with the passion and persistence that characterise its major projects, 2010 saw Zava fulfill one of its dreams: a cutting-edge plant where products can be created with the greatest respect for the environment and for the quality of the work – a studio built according to the most innovative environmentally-sustainable criteria, ensuring energy saving and self-sufficiency. These are values that Zava has adopted in a highly practical and sensitive way, investing in photovoltaic panels and the self-production and recycling of thermal energy. The whole Zava production process focuses on important environmental and ethical choices: the metalworking processes do not involve toxic or acidic substances. Priority is given to traditional ancient natural techniques.
