Founded at the beginning of the year, Delisart is a new international platform offering customizable and limited edition designer products. The company aims to promote traditional values, through a curated selection of contemporary artists, designers and craftsmen.
Enea Arienti, founder of Delisart comments: In these uncertain and challenging times, we want to donate to Milan, the capital of design, a city that we love so much. We opened our company a few months ago to support the values of traditional design. But since realized that we are living through a particularly, unprecedented year. We questioned ourselves on how to act, looking to the future, we were overwhelmed by the desire to communicate a sense solidarity. In conjunction with launching our platform, we chose to start fundraising for #MilanoAiuta, made possible thanks to the support of our many craftsmen and designers".
The Manifesto of Design Charity Funding for MilanoAiuta is Isolation by Massimo Colonna: a series of illustrations created by the photographer and digital artist in time of lockdown and social distancing.
Among the many craftsmen and designers who have joined our fundraiser we can find: Foro Studio from Milan, with the FIORI CHIARI tapestry, a tribute to the well-known Milanese street. Paola Paronetto, the ceramic artist, who through her particular sensitivity and female creativity, produces a variety of unique objects and sculptures such as BOSCO, PISTILLI and CARTOCCI. The creative studio Pretziada, with their ALLUSION carpet made from Sardinian wool, created by their skilled craftsmen; the Dutch Studio Rive Roshan presents COLOR SHIFT, a decorative glass panel that reflects colours to space; and Andrew Trotter from Spain, joining with his BLOCK lamp: an idea that a void can be carved from solidity.
