Salienti is a design practice based in Zurich founded in 2021 by Walter Toccaceli and Matteo Messinese.
Focusing on the essential formal qualities of the objects and their durability over time, we develop meaningful and self-evident products. Our interest lies not only in the design of sustainable objects, but also in how they meet the needs of contemporary society and suggest new ways of living. Our ultimate goal is to preserve and enrich, as well as expand the inherited design culture in contemporary times.
