Once again Guandong succeeds in impressing visitors at Fespa. After our retail-inspired stands of previous years, interior decoration moved into the spotlight and shone with flying colours in Piazza Italia. An area embellished with reproductions of stunning Italian landscapes, decorating every single surface - from the floor to the pillars, tables and struts – alongside Guandong media developed for Spot Deco. An array of innovative solutions for "en plein air" communication, bringing the elegant Piazza Italia to life. "We created a stand designed to present our products through tactile storytelling, giving life to a surprising gallery of applications.
