Italian furniture manufacturer Natuzzi has hired materials consultancy Material ConneXion to develop a materials program including an on-site Materials Library at the company's headquarters in Santeramo, Italy.

“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. 

The resource will be supported by insight from an on-call Material ConneXion 'Materials Specialist' as well as a series of innovation workshops, which will offer hands-on access to relevant solutions.

“Efficiency is vital to our innovation strategy—from process to products. Having cutting-edge materials knowledge at our fingertips will not only help us design better, it will also help us design faster,” said Stefano Sette, Senior Vice President, Natuzzi.
