#MaterialsForDesign: RadiciGroup, meeting the needs of functional design

Salone del Mobile and FuoriSalone offer occasions to discuss innovation, quality, performance and sustainability of materials for furnishings

Tomorrow, the Salone del Mobile design and furnishings exhibition opens its doors in Milan, the  world’s design capital. Taking place concurrently in the heart of the city is the highly regarded “FuoriSalone”, with its many events and opportunities to talk about ideas, projects and solutions for the furnishings industry.


RadiciGroup, always among the first to develop materials for innovative high-technology projects, continues to invest in the research and development of products that best meet the needs and requirements of emerging applications in the furnishings industry.


Well aware of the fact that spaces designed to be functional – starting from the choice of materials – enhance the wellbeing of people, RadiciGroup strives to keep up with the needs of the market. The Group is always interested in collaborating with designers to merge the technological quality of its products with the aesthetics of the design, with a special focus on ecodesign.


We are the only European group with vertically integrated polyamide production and control over the entire production process, from polymer chemicals to the manufacture of synthetic fibres and engineering plastics, up to and including end-of-life recycling,” said Filippo Servalli, corporate marketing & sustainability director of RadiciGroup. “I believe these are value-added factors for designers and other operators in the industry, particularly if they utilize the ecodesign approach. Indeed, in-depth knowledge of the characteristics of materials, working in partnership with a supplier of innovative certified products, and end-of-cycle recycling are of great importance to the players in this market who want to implement the so-called circular economy model.”


RadiciGroup is going to illustrate its know-how during FuoriSalone on two different occasions. The first, on Tuesday, 17 April, 1.30 - 2.00 pm, as part of the “Dialogues on Smart City” initiative organized by Triwù (innovation web TV), is a presentation entitled “RadiciGroup, the Art of Recycling”, to be held at Materials Village (Material ConneXion Italia’s hub during Design Week) in Superstudio Più, located at Via Tortona 2, Milan. The second event, on Friday, 20 April, 10.30 am - 1.00 pm, is a round table “The Circular Economy for the Textile Industry. The Impact of the New EU Directives”, also taking place at Materials Village.
