iSaloni 2017: Product Preview of Colos, Fontanot and Talenti – Only a few weeks from 2017 edition of Milan Design Week, also known as iSaloni, to start, the Italian capital of fashion and design prepares to open its doors to one of the greatest design events. A reunion of the best brands to present their ultimate news and products. A deluxe and magnificent celebration of design. To honour that grand design event, we invite you to preview Colos, Fontanot and Talenti.
Piazza, design Jun Yasumoto
Inspired by the traditional coffee chair of the 1920’s, Piazza collection is designed by Jun Yasumoto for Colos. Stackable chair made of polypropylene monoshell seat, Piazza is available in the version with or without armrests and, thanks to its versatility, it’s perfect for contract and domestic environments, indoors or outdoors.
The Impossible Staircase
After the success at the BAU in Munich, Fontanot will show the new product The Impossible Staircase during Milan Design Week 2017 at Milano Contract District showroom, a space which combines the quality and manufacturing excellence of the best interior and home finishing brands.
“The impossible Staircase”, is characterized by a spiral structure featuring a classic central tube with a sequence of transparency. Plexiglas treads spaced between them (they will be in glass or wood for the final version). But the unique quality of the product is on the outside of the staircase, where a series of thin vertical elements in wood with metal strips create a cylindrical wrapper that “embraces” the entire staircase.
Soho e Cottage Collections
Talenti is an Umbrian company specialized in outdoor furniture design and manufacture that combines elegance, functionality and quality.

Every year the company attends the main outdoor furniture exhibitions and its items are chosen to realize international creations.
The latest collections of Talenti have been designed by International well-known designers.
Marco Acerbis, with its Soho collection, was inspired by the finesse and balance of materials: a series of ropes meet wooden slats, creating an elegant and visually soft net that relates to the nautical world.
Cottage collection is signed by Ramón Esteve instead: designed thinking of the arcades of farms and ranches of the Far West, this collection presents seats with generous proportions and high backs.
