Nasceu no Rio de Janeiro em 1978 e cresceu vendo o pai, José Zanine Caldas, trabalhar. Estagiou com Sergio Rodrigues, quando produziu seu primeiro móvel. Em 2002 graduou-se em Desenho Industrial pela PUC-Rio. A partir de 2003, começou a produzir móveis em madeira maciça, com peças de demolição – colunas, vigas e mourões de casas antigas – batizadas como “Carpintaria Contemporânea”. A partir de 2005, começa a criar uma nova linha de móveis com peças produzidas industrialmente, usando além de madeira com origem controlada, materiais diversos como plástico, metacrilato, metais e partes de outros produtos industrializados. Para representar os móveis dessa nova linha, Zanini cria em 2011 o Studio Zanini. Recebeu os mais importantes prêmios de Design do Brasil e fora pelos móveis que criou nos dois segmentos e expôs nos principais eventos nacionais e internacionais da área. Hoje assina peças para grandes marcas nacionais e internacionais como a francesa Tolix, as italianas Cappellini, Slamp e Poltrona Frau, e a americana Espasso. Nomeado Designer do Ano pela Maison & Objet Americas 2015.
