For twenty years from Paris to London, via Gstaad, Tel Aviv and Monaco, Charles Zana has shared his taste and expertise in the most beautiful interiors around the world. Modern Dining Tables show you amazing dining room designs by this top architectCharles Zana to inspire you.
In two decades the architect, Charles Zana has found his voice, forging his style and axes of influence, on the lookout for discerning clients demanding a unique vision. This vision is above all that of a lover of art, passionate about interior design, who speaks like an extract from key teachings. Charles Zana‘s passion is his trademark.
As in many of Charles Zana’s projects, there are also elegant references to classic French architecture, such as the stylized black boiserie in the modern dining room and the parquet de Versailles in a guest room. Light fixtures by Christophe Côme hang above a Martin Szekely contemporary dining table and Finn Juhldining chairs. The painting on the paneled wall is by Gabriel Orozco, the neon wall sculpture is by Glenn Ligon, and the carpet is by Tai Ping.
The long, eclectic career of the architect and designer Ettore Sottsass, a leading figure in the 1980s Memphis group, is on vivid display in the ornate 18th-century Rue de Grenelle apartment of the architect and designer Charles Zana. In the contemporary dining room, a 1957 pendant by Sottsass hangs above a Fernand Léger ceramic sculpture titled ‘‘La Fleur Qui Marche.’’
He likes to offer “curatorial” interiors for his clients, but this time, it was for the Tornabuoni Art gallery that Charles Zana became a curator. Founded in Florence in 1981 by Roberto Casamonti, the establishment specializing in Italian post-war art presents in its Parisian annex the aptly named exhibition Utopia. A unique project imagined and designed by the renowned architect, which is based on the idea of dialogue. The one he established between the greatest Italian artists and architects from the 1950s to the 1970s, through an exceptional selection of around forty works of art, design or furniture.
For each project, Charles Zana has a dual approach. First, that of a rigorous architect well versed in construction work, seeking comfort, fluid circulations, details, harmony, symmetry and discrete technology, but also capable of a nod to assimilating, when necessary, the history of places, of appropriating and of revisiting, of magnifying or of “twisting”.
Inside this house in Neuilly-sur-Seine, the suspension are by Christophe Cômeand the dining chairs by Finn Juhl. Combining eras and cultures, these interior architecture projects, some of which very recent is still new, reveal a deep sense of the composition of space and a true culture of contemporary art and design. Having grown up in a family of collectors, Charles Zana also inherited a strong penchant for vintage design and daring combinations.
Architect but also decorator, Charles Zana also creates custom furniture, always with this linear spirit that characterizes his style. Nothing ostentatious in Charles Zana, on the contrary, it is the sobriety of the lines which prevails, the luxury design which is not seen, far from the icy chic. Charles Zana especially designs places to live where every detail is thought to bring elegance, fluidity and comfort.
The interior of this luxury penthouse was designed by Charles Zana. This stylish apartment is located in Tel Aviv, Israel, providing amazing views over the city. Being a lover of arts from a young age, the french designer combines art and technique in every one of his projects. Charles Zana admits he doesn’t like too much decoration, though. He is a true fan of art who likes quality materials. The designer pays a lot of attention to the flow of the home, then the color, the materials and then the light.
Charles Zana thought of this apartment as a mix of classic and modern codes. The graphic theme: white, black and gray – seamless integration of art and design.
