From now on one can also say la Duende! To provide even more efficient support to design, contemporary art and lifestyle firms in terms of their international development, Duende PR is opening an office in Milan, the nerve centre of contemporary furniture and design and architectural press. Headed by Carolina Cassani, an interior designer who graduated from Central St. Martins (London) before moving on to design for Wallpaper and World of Interiors, the Milan based Duende PR branch is set to become the privileged counterpart of Italian journalists and a key representative for our client events at the Milan International Furniture Fair. An equivalent branch will open its doors in London in September to improve the European and global resonance of our agency with 60 % of the budget now distributed outside France in the United States, Denmark, Spain, Germany, Czech Republic and Sweden. A new chapter is beginning for Duende, created in 2007  to become a relay for cutting-edge creation, today’s expert in digital public relations, print media and brand content adapted to the art of living businesses and new technologies.  Commercial contact: Anthony van den Bossche advb@duendepr.com
