Alessandro Zambelli lives and works in Mantua. He is specialized in Industrial Design and Materials Technique at the Fondazione Cova and in 2000 begins his professional activity with Agape.
“Shouts and songs, lights and clamour, in a kaleidoscope of colours,” goes the Italian song of the same name (meaning fun fair). Inspired by fun fairs, Lunapark is the new project from Alessandro Zambelli, a limited-edition coffee table created for Rome gallery Secondome.
Part of Unplugged – a collection of hand-made furniture pieces whose artisan production is able to bring out unexpected characteristics in the materials they are made out of – Lunapark is made from precious Murano glass using a special technique whereby plates of glass are melted and shaped.
A pop triumph, featuring fluid lines permeated by strikingly bright colours, this coffee table evokes a world of wonders and lively irony. Thanks to its special production technique, Lunapark’s glass flows into curves which define the table’s shape and, like poured sugar, contains tiny air bubbles which make the surface unexpectedly soft and velvety.

The graphical element of the design which covers the entire surface of the coffee table, featuring a lively and harmonious alternation of glass plates of different lengths and colours, continues without interruption in search of the perfect form, before then softening into gently rounded contour.

In terms of its colours, Lunapark is a fully customisable piece of furniture: it is possible to choose from an extensive palette featuring neutral or subtle shades as well as lively, exuberant tones – light amethyst or dark grey, violet and topaz, yellow and mint green, aquamarine and cobalt blue, to list just a few of the available shades – in an infinite kaleidoscope of tones and colours, totally faithful to the image evoked by its name.
