Designers and artisans from all over the world have joined the international online fundraising to help older people isolated in the city of Milan.

Over 100 pieces of furniture will go on sale at the e-commerce platform of Delisart.

Proceeds from the sale of designer objects, artworks and furniture will be donated to the #MilanoAiuta charity fund, supported by the Fondazione di Comunità Milano Onlus.

This foundation supports 56 municipalities in Milan City and the surrounding area in providing home care to the elderly.

More than 70 artists are taking part in the online design sale, which takes place from June 10th-30th.

Delisart launched at the beginning of 2020 and sells and ships customisable and limited edition designer products around the world.

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.

Craftspeople taking part include Paola Paronetto, the ceramic artist; Foro Studio from Milan, with the FIORI CHIARI tapestry, a tribute to the well-known Milanese street and Andrew Trotter from Spain, joining with his BLOCK lamp: an idea that a void can be carved from solidity.

Enea Arienti, founder of Delisart, says: "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".
