The International Furniture Fair Singapore 2018 (IFFS), held in conjunction with the ASEAN Furniture Show and NOOK Asia, will make its return from 8 to 11 March at the Singapore EXPO.
Italy is shining over Singapore thanks to a project aimed at presenting furniture “Made in Italy” to ASEAN emerging markets and growing southeast Asia. After last year’s great success, “The Italian Hospitality” by Giulio Cappellini is back for the 2018 edition of IFFS. The event is organised in collaboration with Marilena Puppi, CEO of OGS, exclusive IFFS representative in Europe and Middle East.
HOME Italia will not miss the opportunity to participate at this journey into elegance, quality research, excellence, technology and great artisanal tradition.
“A great novelty in the 2018 setting” – explains architect Giulio Cappellini – “is the emphasis on ceramic, one of the Italian excellences. It’s used for lining and floors, but also as a decorative element. We will also present bathroom sets, wellness technologies, lighting systems and much more. No other country succeeds in offering such a wide range of opportunities whereas Italy – along with Italian hospitality – is engaged in a coherent and innovative project, unquestionably powerful.”
The Italian Hospitality welcomes its visitors in a 150 sqm open space where one can find lighting effects, chromatic speakers, graphic elements and design objects capable of creating a strong Italian atmosphere.
Visitors can enjoy the ceramic compositions by Florim and Tonalite, fabric collections by Giovanardi, technological lamps and chandeliers by Icone Luce and La Murrina, a bathroom featuring a VismaraVetro shower, sanitary fittings by Olympia Ceramiche and refined ceramic tiles by Cedit, a living and dining area both furnished by Cappellini.
Precious handmade glass sculptures by Wave Murano Glass will also contribute to surprise the visitors: a special opportunity to see all together in a unique space all the elements which make the Italian craftsmanship so successful across the world.
