Innovative design and a worldwide presence: Seletti history
In the early 1970s, Seletti was a young, dynamic company animated by an innovative spirit. In 1972, Romano Seletti, returning from a trip to the East, came back with a new idea of furniture design and function. The result was a new way of looking at interior design, resulting in furnishing items that differed from canonical standards. From that moment on, the Seletti identity embraced innovation and experimentation as the company's true mission. Seletti became a sector pioneer and the brand began to export internationally. Seletti's character was confirmed and consolidated in the 1980s when Romano was joined by his children, Miria and Stefano, who accompanied their father on constant travels and research into new stylistic forms and expressions. At the same time, the brand's commercial structure evolved, opening to large-scale distribution to become one of the first in the sector to focus on packaging, creating an increasingly original and seductive image for a global public. Miria and Stefano took control of the company in the 90s when Seletti became synonymous with stylistic and material innovation. The 2000s marked the brand's definitive great leap forward. Two overseas branches were opened (Seletti North America Ltd. and Seletti China). A new showroom and warehouses were inaugurated in Italy, covering 7,000 square metres and powered by one of the nation's most extensive photovoltaic systems. Seletti opens to continuous innovation, collaborating with some of the most renowned figures in global design. The company also began to produce lifestyle solutions like accessories for smartphones and tablets, soaps and bags, remaining faithful to a company vision that has been clear since its origins: to revolutionise the design sector in all forms and expressions.
