Desalto has opened its new Milan showroom curated by Gordon Guillaumier, the brand’s art director and celebrated designer.

Guillaumier, who grew up in Malta, has combined design with art, dividing the showroom into two distinct areas. The first is conceived as a collector’s home where furniture and artworks combine to create a strong visual space.

Here, artworks on display have been selected by Chiara Rusconi, founder of the prestigious contemporary art gallery A Palazzo Gallery in Brescia. Spanning artists across the generations, the works include drawings, tapestries, ceramics, paintings and digital embroidery.

The second area has a more typical showroom aesthetic, showcasing Desalto’s 2020 collection which includes the Fourmore extendable dining table designed by Guillaumier, the L45 tables by Giacomo Poletti and the Stac system of modular cabinets by Giacomo Moor.
