A Seat for Meetings

Inspired by the mathematical harmony set out in Palladio’s own rules of architecture published in Quattro Libri Dell’Architecttura, La Rotonda is a table and chair set designed to recreate the perfect meeting place – a spot to exchange ideas, just like the famous monument it’s named after.

The central hall, accessible through the 4 loggias, was an ideal point to observe and contemplate the landscape working in perfect harmony with the building. In that same way the table is imagined as a point of view on the world, and the people who have access to it through the 4 “loggias” chairs, will be able to compare themselves and discuss the worldly ideas surrounding them.

Designer: Andrea Di Filippo & Enrico Zanolla

    Meetings should be organised in a room without chairs. They would be much shorter, and usually yield better results. 🙂

    @ TH
    You’re right! But this project was designed for an exhibition dedicated to the architecture of Andrea Palladio. This doesn’t represent Dzstudio’s vision of meeting rooms, we were called to design a new product taking inspiration from what Palladio’s architecture evocates in us.

    I like the renderings with the tiled walls. The furniture? meh… it’s not bad.

      @ powers

      Those are not renderings!! That’s the real prototype at the opening party of the exhibition!

    Could have been more imaginative
