‘Ithaque’: Charles Zana presents his first furniture collection19.10.2021
Rue de l'Université, Paris#design
For thirty years, Charles Zana has been defining and redefining living spaces. The French architect, known for his pure lines and attention to detail, is constantly inspired by the history of places to bring his contemporary interpretation and expertise. A lover of art, he chose the context of the FIAC to unveil a brand new aspect of his work: his first furniture collection. With “Ithaque”, Charles Zana develops his signature through a series combining comfort, elegance and craftsmanship. This self-produced collection constitutes a complete inventory where refinement is king: tables, seats, headboards and lights complete his universe inspired by the masters Jean-Michel Frank, Pierre Chareau or Gio Ponti. As part of art week in Paris, Zana chose to give life to his collection through an installation in an 18th century mansion. The architect allowed visitors to discover ‘Ithatque’ in a timeless scenography created in partnership with Philippe Ségalot. Throughout the rooms, Charles Zana’s furniture met the paintings of the young Franco-Israeli artist Nathanaëlle Herbelin to create a new dialogue and ultimately the new story of ‘Ithaque’.
