Design is inspiration, surprise, joy. It's the amazement of seeing something unique for the first time. It is creating spaces to feel good and live surrounded by beauty. It is giving a personal touch to indoor and outdoor spaces. It is choosing your ideal element that is the perfect scenography of emotions and experiences, which become indelible memories. The founder Giò Colonna Romano knows it well, who combined his fervent imagination with thirty years of know-how in the processing of plastic resins, giving birth to SLIDE in 2002. The first note of amazement is the luminous piece of furniture, which immediately became a must have in the world of events. Since 2015, his son Marco Colonna Romano has taken over the reins of the company, with the same desire to grow and innovate as his father. Thanks to a new vivacity and the team of young people he surrounds himself with, SLIDE becomes a loved company for outdoor furniture: new shapes, materials and tactile textures have conquered the hearts and ideas of architects and interior designers around the world. SLIDE has thus given birth to complete collections and furnishings, with new shapes, whose lines are born from the collaboration with internationally renowned designers of the caliber of Alessandro Mendini, Paola Navone, Stefano Giovannoni, Fabio Novembre, Marcel Wanders, Karim Rashid and Marc Sadler; new materials were chosen and introduced, initially soft and rigid polyurethane, and then comfortable cushions, waterproof fabrics, tactile textures ideal for completing the polyethylene furnishings with taste and class. But SLIDE does not forget its first essence, lighting: in recent years it has developed a line of much more technical lamps for large areas, essential in shape but with great visual impact. For the first time, Slide has managed to give an artisanal twist to an industrial process: to meet the increasingly high demands of living, the production creates non-replicable nuances, in which every little imperfection enhances the industrial process and makes each piece unique . Because the strength of Slide has always been the careful reading of the market, the creation of something that did not exist and which then became necessary: here is how Slide continues its production in Buccinasco, on the outskirts of Milan, but its name and its products reach more than 130 countries around the world.
