    Melissa Lunardi and Massimo Tonetto have being working with Murano glass and lights independently since the late 90s.

    In 2013 they founded VeniceM, a company that creates unique, hand-made lighting and custom-made designs for clients worldwide, mixing innovation and the great tradition of Italian craftsmanship.

    Meticulousness regarding basic forms, design elegance, and attention to finishes outline the contours of the distinct, self-defining language with which artistic director Massimo Tonetto expresses himself.

    Their simple recurring shapes never tire, but instead become timeless.

    Alberto and Paolo Sala with Federico Ferrari created Edizioni Design in Milan out of a common passion for design and architecture.

    Their objects are minimalist, with shapes strongly linked to their functions, while the technology used is deliberately "lo-fi" and employs stones and metals with different and precious finishes.

    The result is something that they call "naked design" - sleek pieces that are also evocative and full of emotions.

    In 2019, Designers' Collection became Exteta's first distributor in Oceania.

    Exteta's revolutionary philosophy applies the luxury mindset behind Italy's most prestigious interior brands to outdoor living. With Massimo Castagna as artistic director, Exteta's handmade-in-Italy range blends exquisite design with extraordinary craftsmanship.

    In their own words "Exteta is not a collection, but a sense of lifestyle that offers continuity to the attention given to the interior, creating a harmony of materials, lines and functionality in an unexplored outdoor environment."

    While Exteta's designs are engineered for the outdoors, many of them are equally relevant for indoor settings.
