During the Salone del Mobile di Milano 2018, Luigi Caccia Dominioni was the protagonist of an exhibition at the Chiostri dell’Umanitaria promoted by B&B Italia. The company has recently signed a licensing agreement for the exclusive production and distribution of some of his most famous pieces, such as the Catilina chair, the ABCD armchairs, the Cavalletti tables, the Cilindro pouf, the Monachella lamps and many others, receiving the cultural heritage of a master of design and postwar Milanese and Italian architecture.
