“I was delighted to accept the invitation of the new president of Federlegno Arredo Eventi, Emanuele Orsini, to take on this mandate, because I believe in the Salone del Mobile and in its strategic importance for Milan,” Claudio Luti says. “In my view it is absolutely crucial to preserve Milan’s centrality as the world hub of design and planning and to keep focusing on catalysing the attention not just of architects, designers and trade operators on the Salone, but also, as has been the case for several years, that of international stakeholders and trendsetters.”.
Claudio Luti, Kartell president, has just been appointed the new president of Salone del Mobile.Milano, nominated by Federlegno Arredo Eventi’s Business Unit Committee.
He has been already Salone del Mobile president from 2012 to 2014 and, this time, his mandate is specifically to oversee the Salone del Mobile brand and to improve the image and leadership role of the Salone and its trade fair activities.
“Along with the business colleagues who will form part of the new team at my side, it will be my job to immediately start planning how to structure an organisation whose job it is to protect a brand recognised at world level and which must continue to be the best possible representation of the work and investments carried out by our companies” – Mr Luti said.
The Salone del Mobile is taking place from 4-9th April with a calendar of events running alongside the huge range of products from more than 2000 companies at the fair. “I am picking up the good work done by my predecessor for this edition”, Mr Luti added.
