Dune is inspired by the desert landscape: soft, fluid, always moving. The two sides, composing every piece of the collection, speak to each other and melt through the Incalmo technique. The final objects play with the richness of glass colours and textures, in contrast with the cold perfection of LED light source and the roughness of the cargo belts that hold everything together.
Founded in 2006 by Enrica Cavarzan and Marco Zavagno, Zaven focuses on and explores cross references and intertwinements between communication research, design and art. Housed in the former industrial area of Marghera overlooking the Venice lagoon, Zaven’s outputs range from graphic design to product design and installations. Their ability to create partnerships among creative people from different background has been pivotal in establishing Zaven studio both within and beyond the design world. Their work has been featured in Case da Abitare, Elle Decor, Icon, Surface Magazine, Typo Magazine, Wallpaper* among many other design publications worldwide. They have been part of exhibitions such as The New Italian Design (Milan Triennale); Meet Design (Rome and Turin), London Design Festival and Designer Days (Paris).n 2011, Zaven was awarded the MACEF design prize and the Festival Città Impresa prize.
