“We are closing this edition of the Salone del Mobile with a very positive feeling,” said Salone del Mobile President Claudio Luti. “We invested in quality and have demonstrated once again our desire to do even better, working closely with designers, artisans, and communication and cultural professionals to keep on producing product and process innovations and ‘narratives’ that serve to boost the value of design objects.”
