Lake Como Design Fair

The Lake Como Design Fair returned for its second edition on September 20-22, 2019, embracing two venues. A curated design selection presented at the Teatro Sociale Como and a new section – entirely dedicated to architecture – held at the Palazzo del Broletto. Designers and architects were invited to contribute to a reflection and investigation on the subject of colour with and through their submitted projects. Margherita Ratti, founder and fair curator, set up the new architecture section with Andreas Kofler, all in close collaboration with Lorenzo Butti, director of the LCDF.

A catalogue, which includes Andreas Kofler’s essay “Tutto è colore” (Everything is colour), accompanied the LCDF.
