Believing that “art prevails over design,” Pablo Pallucco founded his company in 1982 in Treviso, Italy. It evolved into a design-driven company and, in the 1980s, took over production of Mariano Fortuny’s iconic 1921 lamp, a piece that has been likened to sculpture.
The brand ZEE started in 2012.
Peter who was (and still is) an agent for different design accessory brands for the BELUX market wanted to create a design product from a to z.
But everything is already (re-) designed and this makes a new product difficult to stand out.
Finally he saw the light in garden accessories, more specific a garden hose reel.
ZEE means SEA in Dutch, so “mirtoon” a sea in the Mediterranean was chosen as the first product name. It received the “Herman Van De Velde label” with its launch.
In 2014 Luc, who is an agent and distributor of design accessories and furniture for the Benelux joined to build the brand ZEE.
He is the sales and marketing force and makes the brand known the world around.
Zee stands for fun, affordable and surprising design for the garden.
Since the year of its founding in 2002, Slide has been a leading company of outdoor and indoor decoration, lighting design for contract, events and residential areas. Its success is due to its founder, Giò Colonna Romano: his fancy fantasy matches perfectly with his thirty-year know-how in the processing of plastic resins. As a demiurge, Slide creates colourful design objects: starting from a humble material as polyethylene, Slide elevates it to refine high quality design and elegant art objects. The present and the future of Slide is the constantly research for innovation. Slide is always looking for new materials, as the introduction of soft and rigid polyurethane, and it is looking for new shapes, thanks to the collaboration with some of the most famous designers of the world, as Alessandro Mendini, Paola Navone, Stefano Giovannoni, Marcel Wanders, Karim Rashid and Marc Sadler. The first success was the production of luminous bar furniture, which can be the protagonists of unforgettable events and contract that do not want to be unnoticed. Slide constantly grows up in different products and sectors: we acquire and develop the Design of Love collection, we create rental service of furniture, and we look for beauty, with the Slide Art branch. Between artisanship and innovation.
