    New contest on Desall.com: Perletti and Desall invite you to create a new umbrella, able to distinguish itself from the competitors thanks to its design and style details that make it a very distinguishable product.
    Perletti is looking for concepts and product ideas for a new umbrella; you are thus invited to explore solutions aimed at its customisation and style that may help the Perletti brand to be easily recognised by the final user. You are free to give your own interpretation to the product drawing on your creativity and background.
