In conjunction with that, Mr. Iko In, founder of iN publisher organised an event with an array of renowned Italian brands at Bangsar Shopping Centre (BSC) from 1 - 5 June 2022. He has been an avid supporter of our Malaysian talents in the design industry and had orchestrated various events and programmes over the years. In return, he was also invited and participated in design exhibitions on a global scale.
As an exclusive distributor, KIAN sponsored Nardi Outdoor chairs and barstools that is made in Italy for this event. One of the prominent furniture pieces was our Folio Armchair that is practical and lightweight. Interestingly, this piece can also be transformed into a rocking chair that can enliven any outdoor space with its durability. Ultimately, we shared our continuous support towards their design talks through our sponsorship.
