Teatro Sociale Como

Design

120 carefully selected design objects will punctuate the Ridotto's room of the Teatro Sociale di Como creating a polychrome and playful environment. From industrial design to unique artifacts, new projects made specifically for the fair, projects already known, contaminations and examples of emerging production will be visible at the fair.

Two installations will surprise the visitors: Insieme ordinato di aste, a 13-meter multifunctional object by the Como-based architect Marco Balzarotti, and the polychrome fabric designed by textile artist and designer Karol Pichler, made from recycled materials.
