The will and the desire to communicate with each other and to communicate a China that is constantly evolving. This was the reason why CIFF, the world’s largest furniture sector fair and the most influential business platform in all Asia, decided to construct an information portal. A portal that wants to show the world a reality undergoing constant changes. A world increasingly focused on sustainable choices, beauty, design, quality. A world, the Chinese world, which is measuring itself up to the West while also rediscovering its cultural and aesthetic roots. A world increasingly ready to collaborate and increasingly capable of placing people at the centre of everything.
