Discover Marta Delgado’s Creations that Transform Spaces with Elegance, Simplicity and Responsibility

We are thrilled to announce our new partnership with the talented designer Marta Delgado. At Marta Delgado Studio, innovation is imperative, a vital energy that turns every obstacle into an opportunity. With over a decade of experience in the industry, Marta seized the moment to establish her own venture just when the world paused due to Covid-19, demonstrating extraordinary adaptability and resilience.

Marta Delgado Studio’s Mission

The primary purpose of her company is to design pieces with a strong character capable of making a difference in any environment. That’s why Marta Delgado has chosen to work closely with a small group of artisans, whom she herself describes as “extraordinary,” helping her give life and shape to her ideas.

Inspiration and Philosophy

Sculpture, architecture, geometry, graphics, areas that have always sparked Marta’s interest, are the same from which she draws inspiration for her creations. “I am very inspired by details and changes in scale,” whether it’s spaces, jewelry, books, or magazines, for her, awake and open to the World, History, Culture, and Time, the sources of inspiration seem to be infinite.

Marta Delgado

“When we add objects to people’s lives, to the economy, and essentially to the planet, I think there is a huge responsibility.”

Marta Delgado

Marta Delgado’s ideas embody simplicity, honesty, beauty, quality, importance, and resilience. That’s why the pieces, crafted in Portugal in small artisanal workshops, have the prerogative of lasting for generations with proper maintenance. Marta herself describes her creations as “aesthetically contemporary yet made with timeless materials.”

In the context of the role of women in the world of design, Marta Delgado argues that design takes on a new dimension when voice transforms into culture through interaction with others. Her experience confirms that skills vary from individual to individual, emphasizing that gender is not a determining factor. “I appreciate women who thrive in a complex balance of work and personal life, multitasking with grace under pressure,” Marta says. Furthermore, she argues that all sectors would greatly benefit from greater diversity among owners, CEOs, leaders, and managers.

Marta’s Iconic Creations

Her designs are intended for practical use by any user, whether it be a family, hotel guests, someone dining in a restaurant, or even people working in a company. Primarily, her products are chosen by interior designers, architects, art galleries, buyers, and clients, both for Residential and Contract Projects.

Among Marta Delgado Studio’s most representative collections are the Divergent Sofa, a very captivating piece in a category where it’s difficult to design unique pieces, the Sequence Mirror for its simplicity and jewelry-like atmosphere, and last but not least, the Equation Coffee Table, which is, according to Marta herself, the most challenging piece to produce.

The Future

The startup’s life is on the rise, and the outlook is to expand the collection with new projects, always respecting the company’s values, so that more and more interior designers from around the world choose to use Marta Delgado Studios’ creations in their projects.

Euro-Dollar

The euro has suffered a swift and brutal slump this year, and now it has crossed a major threshold: for the first time in 20 years, the exchange rate between the euro and the US dollar has reached parity. The euro hasn’t been valued below $1 since July 15, 2002. It’s now below $1.01.

What does it mean?

It means the European and American currencies are worth the same amount.

The falling exchange rate has been blamed on rate rises, Europe’s energy dependence on Russia and growing fears of a recession, which typically drive investment in haven assets. Energy prices have driven euro-area inflation to a record 8.6% in June, making everything from groceries to utility bills more expensive.

Why dollar is king now

The dollar has climbed in value against global currencies by more than 10% since the beginning of the year.

It means that people need to put up fewer dollars in exchange for other currencies.

What does a strong U.S. dollar mean for imports, exports?

For decades, currency devaluation was a monetary policy tool to obtain competitive trade advantages. The idea is simple: if your currency is worth less, your products are cheaper, and it is much easier to put them on the market, which revitalizes exports and boosts the economy.

A strong dollar may help consumers buy more imported goods. 

Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody’s Analytics said “if you’re an importer, the strength of the dollar is a good thing”. Zandi expects the dollar’s strength against the euro to last for a year or two.

“I don’t see the dollar significantly weakening any time soon,” he said.

Over the past two years, our brand has grown despite the pandemic. An extraordinary result obtained also thanks to your trust.

A new identity appreciated on the global market

We are always here. We are always us.

After 12 successful years of the Fesal company, in 2018 we created the new Salbini brand, but it was not enough.
We understood that it was necessary to focus on the exclusive services that we are able to offer.
For this reason, in February 2020 we rebranded our brand by expanding the selection to the best European luxury brands.

We have gone from the “Italian Design Worldwide” e-commerce website to a “Design Worldwide” service company, with a new identity, a new corporate website – the one you are reading this article on 🙂 – and new communication systems.

We have created a new brand identity that reflects our corporate identity.
Today we faithfully transmit our values and you too have rewarded us, by entrusting us with a small order, or a large supply and we thank you.
The Salbini brand is increasingly synonymous with reliability. 
Customer reviews on Trustpilot testify to this.

People at the center

Our company is made up of people who are our real strength, and we are proud to call ourselves a “family”.
All our activities, from the simplest to the most demanding, are based on trust, sincerity and mutual respect.
Satisfied customers and the big brands that ask us to collaborate are the testimony of our professionalism on the market.
But our greatest joy is personal relationships. In fact, it often happens that business contacts become friendships, going beyond business. We know each other to provide products and we find ourselves becoming friends.

We are really happy to be there.

The Covid-19 pandemic and our corporate reorganization

The Covid-19 pandemic has changed the way we live.
With millions of deaths worldwide and health systems collapsing, many companies have been brought to their knees by various lockdowns.

Thanks to new digital systems we have managed to speed up internal processes, even during lockdowns. A new corporate communication organization has allowed us to continue working remotely by constantly staying in contact with customers, partners and suppliers in total safety.
Our logistics have improved and is now even more efficient and more environmentally friendly.
The integration of new payment methods has allowed us to reduce transaction costs, making us even more competitive through personalized quotes for large supplies.
The expansion of the Italian and international staff has allowed us to take care of every detail, internal and external, improving the services offered.

The complete supply for residential, commercial and hospitality projects

Not just appliances.

We have been on the market for over sixteen years, and we have been for the most part through our old e-commerce site fesal.com, thanks to which many in the world have been able to appreciate our professionalism, especially for the supply of household appliances.

Maybe you too bought appliances the first time you trusted us 🙂

With the launch of the Salbini brand we went further, expanding and establishing ourselves more and more on the market also as resellers of the best European brands of furniture, lighting, bathroom and outdoor furniture, marble, natural stones and accessories.

For the first time in our history, in 2021 our furniture sales exceeded our sales of household appliances.
Today, the best of European design also passes through Salbini services, and we are very proud of it.

The creation of new partnerships with important companies in the industry

We have further expanded our wide range of brands by introducing new European manufacturers that we have carefully selected.
We have also established new transportation partnerships, making shipping safer, greener, faster and cheaper for our customers around the world.
The new partnerships with installation companies ensure a wide range of coverage for assembly and product warranties.

We have grown and our partners have grown with us.

Growth in all geographic areas

Australia continues to be our main market. 57% of our sales were shipped to Australian customers, mainly on the East coast, but there are also orders on the West coast.

We have also grown proportionally in other markets, carrying out small, medium and large orders for Asia, Europe, America and Africa.

We are Salbini, we are Design Worldwide.

sono sicuro

We are proud to be part of Aicel’s group of accredited online stores.

Our company works in full compliance with all the rules of e-commerce in full protection of the final consumer.

The “Sono Sicuro” certificate.

Sono Sicuro” is the certification issued by AICEL (Italian Association of Electronic commerce) that distinguishes “healthy and virtuous” e-commerce companies that are committed to guarantee high levels of service quality to their customers.

In order to obtain the certificate the company needs to guarantee:

  • quality and service;
  • transparency of the conditions of sale;
  • clarity on privacy and cookies;
  • security of economic transactions-return and refund conditions;
  • correct information, advertising.

The certificate is verified annually examining the entire structure of the site and its commercial procedures.  In the event of behavior that doesn’t comply with the requirements, the certificate is withdrawn.

That’s why our customers can feel confident.

In 2015 our managing director Filippo Salbini was selected and interviewed by PayPal for the extraordinary results obtained through the first e-commerce website fesal.com.

A lot of time has passed since this interview and in the meantime Fesal has evolved and is now Salbini, a brand which, in addition to exporting the best European luxury brands all over the world, offers exclusive services dedicated to the creation of residential, commercial and hospitality projects.
