The Philippines’ Center for International Trade Expositions and Missions (CITEM), export marketing arm of The Department of Trade and Industry, stages its select furniture manufacturers and designers for Salone Internazionale del Mobile, 2017 edition, to underscore design restraint and poise.
CITEM signals this year its own arrival at cosmopolitan maturity. After four decades of institutional work with significant designers from various culture centers of the world, the organization has gained a reputation for harmonizing local aesthetics with developments in international design.
SALONE Milan is to CITEM a theater for Filipino actors who have mastered the merger of opposites: hand and mind; the artisanal and the concept-driven; the imagination of the individual designer, on one hand, and, on the other, the design ethos of a cultural bed; and sheer technical dexterity and the discipline imposed by folk materials and processes. CITEM’s curatorial choices for presentation at the Italian fair—the design/manufacturing houses of A.Garcia Crafts, Atelier-A by Cebu Fil Veneer, Catalina Embroideries, Inc. and Finali Furniture and Home Accessories Co. with the participating designers —Rachelle Dagñalan, Stanley Ruiz and Wataru Sakuma.
