The Project Collection by Zambaiti Contract celebrates the essence of Italian spirit expressed in a daily mood of elegant, discreet atmosphere, embracing the joy of living spaces. As for the previous Eterea Collection launched in September 2020, the Project Collection also finds expression in an itinerant cultural scenario, through the storytelling of professional architects, who interpret in their personal way - through a clearly recognizable stylistic project - some of the most iconic Italian artistic currents, which left their mark on modern art. The Collection was born from an idea of Zambaiti CreativeLab, the research and development center within the style office and the creative heart of the Albino headquarter, which worked in close collaboration with architects Eleonora Sassoli, Gianluigi Landoni, Emanuele Svetti, Andrea Auletta and Roberto Semprini, who have been given the task of interpreting an artistic theme through their own vision.

PARETI VIVE, WATERPROOF, ACOUSTIC AND PROTECTION
The Project Collection offers four supports: Pareti Vive (Living Walls), Waterproof, Acoustic and Protection that offer high performance and quality levels to meet each and all customer needs.
Pareti Vive: An entirely natural substrate for the well-being and healthiness of every room. It can be produced both for rotogravure and digital print. A brand new product from Zambaiti Contract, it has been selected for its completely green characteristics. For use in different areas with the exception of damp rooms.
Waterproof: Waterproof is a technical coating based on fiberglass, capable of decorating and waterproofing wall surfaces in humid environments such as bathrooms, shower stalls, wellness centers, spas, gyms etc... This high-performance support is able to withstand high thermal stresses due to the protective polyurethane-based finish, to be applied at the end of the installation of the support, for a correct insulation of the surface. The use of this support in humid environments opens up many creative scenarios to designers and reduces the use of building materials in renovation works, while in demolition works, it drastically reduces the disposal of waste materials.
Acoustic: An innovation in the wallcovering sector, this backing has been concocted for use in those areas where privacy and quiet are particularly required, for instance in executive offices or meeting rooms or, in the residential field, in bedrooms. This product helps to reduce noise while providing a decorative background: the pairing of the sound-absorbing layer with the fireproof fabric generates a slight thickness that requires a professional installation on a previously smoothened surface.
Protection: A renowned Zambaiti Parati product, born from craftsmanship and know-how. This backing is characterized by astounding performances that make it suitable both for contract and residential use: it is fireproof, antibacterial and extremely well resistant to scratches and blows. The embossing process gives it a lush textile look, very pleasant to touch.
SCENOGRAPHIC SETS, SYMBOLS AND DREAMS
Project is a collection characterized by a strong visual impact. Architectures, geometries, dreams, games of light and color are some of the exciting graphic codes developed by architects to liven up and furnish contract use contexts, from residential spaces to the world of hospitality, up to common areas, with an immersive and symbolic idea capable of interpreting art with the most authentic Italian language. The wallpaper themes of the new collection are: "Luce" (Light) by architect Eleonora Sassoli; "Frammenti di Classicità” (Fragments of Classicism) by architect Gianluigi Landoni; "Metafisica dell’Anima” (Metaphysics of the Soul) by architect Emanuele Svetti; "E, soprattutto, sempre rinasce” (And, above all, it will always be reborn) by interior designer Andrea Auletta and "Neo-Baroque" by architect Roberto Semprini are full of emotional feelings and immediately state a strong evocative purpose. The Macchiaioli painters, nature and the colors are basic themes for Luce, the Collection designed by Eleonora Sassoli that opens up to new visions and sensations in the scenario of the space to be lived in the pictorial transposition of light. Luce, with its three lines - Black and White, Warm, Cold - brings us back to the external environment, through the "technique of one or more spots" which, thanks to digitalization, turns into a wallpaper series suitable for indoor and outdoor spaces, where the emotion and the impression of a view give personality and brighten our daily life, recalling open and boundless spaces. In the visual concept of Gianluigi Landoni for the Frammenti di Classicità Collection, the basic idea was to carry on the walls in graphic forms, the signs, structures and architectural patterns of the Masters of the Milanese architectural age, from Giovanni Muzio and Giò Ponti, from Figini and Pollini to Aldo Rossi, with a personal graphic interpretation of manipulation. For the Collection Metafisica dell’Anima, Emanuele Svetti has crossed a dimension full of fairy-tale landscapes, mythological figures and celebrations of the classic, immersed in a surreal beauty that fluctuates between dream and reality, generating a sort of Surreality.
The Collection really wants to elevate the art-unconscious relationship by opening new paths that lead directly to a contemporary eclectic interior. Andrea Auletta has chosen to investigate the motifs of the Italian Renaissance with their geometries, chromatic paths, particular qualities of surfaces and atmospheres and has isolated some details to reinterpret them in the Collection E, soprattutto, sempre rinasce. A time travel, the pure search for the desire to revive, on contemporary walls, motifs linked to an all-Italian storytelling speaking of rebirth, art and historical intelligence. Neo-Baroque by Roberto Semprini is a journey into an immodest and imposing, wonderful and tragic style of powerful aesthetic effect, which generates a Collection capable of illustrating the symbols of Baroque through a reinterpretation linked to contemporary aesthetics with a reference to frescoes, architecture, decorations, interiors of churches and historic Sicilian noble residences. And, finally, the Forme Collection developed by Zambaiti CreativeLab, featuring graphics that recall nature and its colors with an emphasis on light, plants, stratifications.
