During 2015 Milan Design Week, our firm together with Paolo Balzanelli, has designed a temporary exhibition inside the Filologico Center in the very heart of Milan, for the european debut of Lighting Innovation Design Center global platform that brings together some of the largest Chinese lighting manufacturers.

Within the walls of this stunning Liberty-style building , the “China meets Italy” exhibition displayed some of the most significant pieces of contemporary Chinese design from 8 of the most important Chinese brands: Gmy, Hailing, Taste, Kamtat, Kinglong, KRLamps, Opple and Wonga. Guests of honour the Guzhen City Govern, from the Chinese capital of the lighting industry and the heads of the Chinese Lighting Plaza – Huayi Group. The size of LIDC network says a lot about the magnitude of this initiative: 15000 lighting manufacturers and 300 associate designers from 18 countries, all harmonised by a strong connection with WIPO (World Intellectual Property Organization) and for us here at Valerio Cometti+V12 Design is a true honour to bring Chinese design to its debut in Europe.
