An Italian affair at the new W Atelier flagship with Prestige

An evening of Italian wine and dine at the new W Atelier, featuring a stunning selection of furniture pieces.

In homage to Zanotta, an innovative and often unconventional furniture brand, which routinely changed the design industry since its founding in the 1950s, home furnishings retailer W Atelier threw an Italian-themed evening get-together for some 50 guests at its new $7-million flagship showroom at Henderson. With its live kitchens transformed into a gathering point, Chef Matteo Pertoldi from Atipico and Giacomo Pallesi of Angra Wine & Spirit — both Italians — tantalised palates with tastes of home. With Zanotta’s brand reps in attendance, the well-satiated guests took delight in the first looks of many novelties including the Judy armchair, Taschino night stand and Flamingo sofa. The well-loved Sacco chair (also the world’s first beanbag) was also displayed.
