Tobia Zambotti (Italy-1990) is a Reykjavík-based designer working in the intersection of interior design, product design and conceptual art.

After his B.A in Architecture at IUAV (Venice) and M.A in Interior Design at Politecnico di Milano (Milan), Tobia moved to Shanghai to work with Alberto Caiola Studio, an award winning firm specialized in interiors.

At the beginning of 2019 Tobia decided to leave the chaotic and polluted Chinese city for an opposite lifestyle in Reykjavík (Iceland) where he started to work as a freelance designer.

Tobia's projects got an important media coverage from prestigious magazines all over the world such as Frame, Dezeen, Interior Design, Forbes, Elle Decor, Designboom and many more (+).

Recent works include The Fan Chair - a chair collection that gives a new life to discarded stadium seats, Coat-19 - the puffer jacket filled with single-use masks that highlights the absurd pandemic-related pollution and Sea Level Rise Chair - a statement-design chair that calls attention to the sea level rise topic upcycling old lifebuoys.
