Demetrio Zanetti founded demosmobilia XXth Century Design Gallery in 1995.
Using his experience and knowledge, he brought his vision of a design gallery to life through the establishment of demosmobilia.
Demosmobilia’s focus is reflected in our catalog of Mid-Century Modern design.
The Design Gallery spans three historical periods of Modern Design: the fundamental period of the 1930s – 50s, Modernism of the
1950s and 60s, and the 70s post-Modernist period of Radical Design.
The main Warehouse and Gallery are located near the Italian border in Chiasso, Switzerland a strategic location.
The converted industrial factory offers 1300+ sqm of floor space with over 3000 vintage pieces on exhibit.
The selected location for the Warehouse and Gallery attracts collectors from all parts of the world.
In addition to the main location, we have a more intimate Temporary Gallery located in the Lugano City Pedestrian Center.
Demosmobilia also offers design consultancy services. Our services include site-specific design for contemporary interiors.
We base our recommendations upon an understanding of the need for a harmonious balance between Contemporary Art & Design.
Today’s buyer expects to be surprised by invention and to be seduced by narratives; we create stories and weave Design into
the context of a cultural frame.
