Visitors to the company’s showroom in Cantù can touch and closely observe all the collections produced by Desalto in 2020. Among the latest products, there are the Fourmore extendable dining tables by Gordon Guillaumier, the Stac modular system of cabinets by Giacomo Moor and the L45 table range designed by Giacomo Poletti.

Art and design meet at The Collector’s House, Gordon Guillaumier’s installation for Desalto

The Collector’s House, the exhibition layout designed by Gordon Guillaumier for Desalto corporate showroom represents the perfect marriage between art and design. In this project, two different worlds and disciplines harmoniously coexist. The works of art on display have been selected by Chiara Rusconi, founder of A Palazzo Gallery, a contemporary art gallery in Brescia. Among these works are paintings by Nathalie Du Pasquier, Paolo Gonzato and Servane Mary; pictorial paper tapestries by Ann Iren Buan, ceramics by Bonomo Faita, and digital images by Brendan Fowler and Gioele Amaro.

These works of art, made in different historical periods, harmonize with the numerous pieces from the rich and articulated Desalto collection, dialoguing and enhancing each other. The Collector’s House invites us to understand the subtle link between art and design. A natural connection that results in a rich and original aesthetic dialogue. With this installation, Desalto shows the visitors that its products are not only functional but also beautiful, just like works of art.
