A multidisciplinary creative studio established in 2006 by Enrica Cavarzan and Marco Zavagno, Zaven focuses its research on the interaction between communication, design and art. Their services range from graphic design and product design to installation, standing out for their ability to develop collaborations between creative minds from different fields. They have exhibited at the The New Italian Design exhibition at Milan's Triennale, at Meet Design (Rome and Turin), and several times at the London Design Festival and Designer Days in Parigi. In 2011, they won the Macef Design award and the Festival Città Impresa award. They worked with Anna Bresciani to create the Monos publishing project and, with Matteo Zorzenoni and Giorgio Biscaro, founded Something Good, a design and communication research collective.

“Our designs all stem from research across different disciplines.”

"In our work, we endeavour to combine art, design, fashion and communication."

    Zaven presents Float and Sunny

    The creative duo have turned their attention to the Novamobili living room with their Float series of sideboards. This new project plays with the concept of support and storage, based on the idea of reinstating the importance of each of the elements making up the piece of furniture. "So - as the designers point out - by moving the legs to the outside and putting the screws that hold everything together in clear view, the function is made known and every detail is on display and given the same importance." The Sunny table, on the other hand, is defined by light and essentiality and features a top supported on three simple metal legs joined by as many "arms": a reflection on the relationship between the limbs (the supports) and their function.
