Cari Zalloni was born in Athens in 1937 as the offspring of a very international family - the mother Viennese, the father Greek of Italian descent. He attended the French school in Greece and was raised multilingual. After the death of his father in 1947 he went to Vienna with his mother. Cari Zalloni had a great affinity for Italy - the language, the culture, the Italian cuisine and of course the famous “dolce far niente”. He was an absolute jazz lover, dog and cat owner and golfer. He lived north of Graz in an old family house from the 16th century, surrounded by numerous antiques.

After graduating from a humanistic Konvikts grammar school, aborting chemistry studies at the TH Graz and studying in the master class for design at the Academy of Applied Arts in Vienna under Professor Oswald Haerdtl, he began his work in the late winter of 1960 as Designer.

In his design dream country Italy. In a young, dynamic industrial center north of Siena. At that time, furniture was already being manufactured there in the then globally prevailing trend of Scandinavian design. This enabled him to work with a wide variety of materials right from the start of his work - wood, metal, room textiles, leather, glass, ceramics, enamel and acrylic.

Two years later he relocated his creative activities to Germany, where he worked as a freelance designer for the decorative ceramics company Steuler-Keramik in Höhr-Grenzhausen and designed various glass series for the Maximiliansau glassworks and a glassworks belonging to the WMF Group.

Cari Zalloni has lived in Salzburg since 1962, now married and has two children. That is the point in time that led him into the eyewear industry, an industry to which he was still very closely connected fifty years later and which he helped shape like almost no other designer.

In addition, he designed skis for BLIZZARD-SKI under the name "artdesignCAZAL", designed surfboards and snowboards and later a sports fashion collection for the company ALPHA, lights for the company HALLER, ski boots for the company DACHSTEIN, and sports gloves for the traditional Munich company ROECKL , designed various visual implementations for the pharmaceutical company CIBA-GEIGY in Vienna and exhibition stands, presentation and sales rooms and several glass series for the RASTAL factories.

But Cari Zalloni enjoyed his undisputed greatest international design success in the eyewear industry. CAZAL, a globally established designer eyewear brand that has been on the road to success right from the start, is known even after 37 years of existence for the eye-catching, independent design and the high recognition value of the CAZAL-typical "signature".
