“We see immense opportunity in the material trends and advances developing today,” said Pasquale Natuzzi, CEO of Natuzzi Spa.
The Materials Library will will enable the company to improve energy and resource efficiency, lower environmental impact and reduce costs. In order to keep abreast of new innovations throughout the year, the Library will be updated quarterly with material samples representing the latest trends.
