Poised on a slim metal stem, Comodo’s wood cabinet is set off-centre with a lidded compartment. Castiglioni and Pozzi’s elegant multi-purpose unit can be used as a bedside table, a tray, a coffee table or simply as a storage box for all your favourites. Supposedly Castiglioni, being a big fan of sweets, used his own Comodo to store candy.
”I have always desired to do the opposite. Not because I have an anarchic behaviour, but because I think the fundamental basis of design consists in thinking the opposite”.
Renowned Italian designer Achille Castiglioni (1918-2002) had a passion for re-designing, re-inventing and re-conceptualizing. Traditional interior design objects would pass through his Milan-based studio and end up perfected. He always aimed at enhancing and glorifying the value of the design. Throughout his career he worked to raise design to an ever-higher level of synthesis - stripping design down to the very core and eliminating everything superfluous. During his career Achille Castiglioni collaborated with many designers, among them Giancarlo Pozzi. Together they made Trio and Comodo in 1991.
