Salone president Claudio Luti went on to say: «Enormous numbers of visitors, not necessarily with links to design, have made their way to Milan to experience the thrill of this Salone and of the city itself. Thanks to the collaboration of all the institutions working in the city, Milan has been even more beautiful and welcoming than ever. Milan alone can lay claim to the Salone del Mobile and its industrial enterprises with their links to the creative and publishing world and close ties to the city».
Greek companies – Papadatos, al2, de-code, Laic, Mia Collection, Candia Strom, Gyllos, Anesis, Verfo lab, 10DEKA and F+M FOS (Euroluce) – more experienced and more confident than ever showed a high professional profile not only through their renewed collections presented with a sophisticated and well structured way but also with a flexible and exemplary approach of visitors – professionals or not.
During these six days, greek presence was dynamic with constant increase turnout, a fact that proves the value and the interest of their product which eventually gave rise to the word-of-mouth advertising. The Salone del Mobile Milano 2017 was a real experience with greek design to gain wide recognition and greek producers to participate in discussions, agreements and meetings showing that the future can be nothing less than auspicious.
