Jonathan De Pas
Paolo Lomazzi’s collaboration with Jonathan De Pas and Donato D’Urbino began in 1966. In the 60’s-70’s they developed a specific interest in creating furniture and temporary architecture with industrially advanced materials and technology. They designed and built a series of pneumatic structures for the Italian Pavilion at the World Exposition in Osaka, for the XIV Triennale of Milan and for Eurodomus. In 1967 they designed an inflatable armchair called Blow and since then have been working in the industrial design field.
They planned and built industrial and residential buildings and extended their focus to the diverse areas of industrial products: home and office equipment, lighting, electronics, bathroom fixtures, etc. Their designs have been produced by well known companies such as: Acerbis, Alessi, Artemide, BBB Bonacina, Bellato-Pallucco, Bonacina Pierantonio, Bonaldo, Cassina-Marcatre, Driade, De Padova, Giannini, Lualdi Porte, Lumina Italia, MDF Italia, Naos, Valli & Valli, Poltronova, Quattrocchio, Robots, Scavolini, Stilnovo, Tonelli, Zanotta, Zerodisegno, Roset, Koizumi, and Santa&Cole.
