Desalto has always been an integral part of the Brianza area manufacturing tradition, stretching from the 1950s to the present day. Brianza is a special region where the masters of Italian design found a fertile environment and resolute, enthusiastic business people. Desalto founders, the Orsenigo family, are among the entrepreneurs who helped to spread, worldwide, the concept of a product based on a constant technical and technological research, aesthetically sophisticated and designed to be functional.
Over the years, a fruitful relationship between designer and producer nurtured a virtuous cycle, which led to a wide range of articles featuring an elegant design and high quality. Desalto meticulous quality control is applied throughout the manufacturing stages from the prototype development to the engineering and working in a dynamic partnership with the many well-known or young and up-and-coming Italian and international designers invited to share their creativity with the company: Marco Acerbis, Shin Azumi, Riccardo Blumer, Claudio Caramel, Caronni + Bonanomi, Piergiorgio Cazzaniga, Pierluigi Cerri, Decoma Design, Fattorini Rizzini & Partner, Gordon Guillaumier, Marc Krusin, Gianluigi Landoni, Arik Levy, Piero Lissoni, Nendo, Denis Santachiara, Stefan Schoening, Sigla, Jacob Springers, Studio Ausenda Greco, Andreas Weber, Hannes Wettstein e Tokujin Yoshioka.
