Seletti is a story of vision and evolution. Established in 1964, in Cicognara, Mantova by Romano Seletti, who since 1972 travelled extensively to the Far East, especially around China with Luigi Goglio, who was an expert in international business. Stefano Seletti, aged 17 and still a student, started to accompany his father on his business trips to China, India and Thailand, which opened up to him new horizons and cultures that would make a lasting impression on his future professional and personal life. Seletti became one of the first companies to optimize its products, a few products repackaged 'ad hoc, giving new importance to the creativity of the packaging and to all its services that has made the company a strategic supplier of large distribution systems.
In the 1990's, the company continued to evolve, Stefano together with his sister Miria at the helm and with Luca Goglio taking over international relations from his father Luigi. Other than just commercial strategies the company was constantly expanding its productivity in the Far East, not only producing "Arts & Crafts" but also products using metal, glass and porcelain on an industrial scale.
Expanding new horizons and new ideas, Stefano Seletti began to play around with new materials, an example is the fine porcelain and borosilicate tableware collection "Estetico Quotidiano" (the name of the collection is also a "statement" of the company's new philosophy) that has become a classic and has repositioned single use items into fine object pieces. Enthusiasm, passion, creativity and experimentation, the Seletti family, over time, have created a brand recognized all over the world, a series of collections that have revealed design classics.
Today, Seletti is working with young Italian and international designers, who are quickly making their own mark, the desire is to create a group that can grow and evolve together, a challenge, that, so far, is producing great results. "I am also working with people outside of the design world, artists, visionaries with whom I would like to break down some barriers. My unconventional non-academic education naturally leads me to crossover, a journey towards the idea of a new beauty. For us, this is (r)evolution."
