Cotto d'Este, A dialogue with Design

There are two major trends in the design of spaces today: the first is linked to the demand for individual differentiation in response to an increasingly strong homogenization of styles. The other is the existence of the grand scheme for collective responsibility, the need to adopt careful and sustainable practices and policies with regards to the planet.

So it comes as no surprise then to discover that in this great dual scenario, two prominent entities in the Italian and international culture of design are to come together: Domus and Cotto d’Este, accustomed to dictating themes in the spheres of publishing and production. A dialogue will be formed through three events organised by Domus in the Cotto d’Este showroom in Milan, articulated around three big questions.

The first, on Tuesday 12 June will regard “Design for large commissions, standardisation and customisation” and will see Barreca & La VarraCamillo Botticini and Michele De Lucchi discussing the issue of customisation linked to the production of special components or design interpretations of standard elements.

On 18 September Andrea Marcante e Adelaide Testa, partners at Marcante Testa, will talk about “Interior design, in fashion beyond fashion. The new decoration of warm interiors”, describing how interior design today is seeking warmer environments, connected to history and memory.

The final event, that will be held on 13 November, “The circularity of design,: all round sustainability”, will be led by TAM Associati e Traverso- Vighy, two practices that have always dealt with sustainability with all its forms and versions.

Reserved for architects, all events begin at 6pm and are offered free of charge on registering with domusweb at the following address, until all sits have been taken:

Slowing down today, to come back stronger tomorrow.

Today more than ever, doing business demands a strong sense of responsibility as well as the ability to be flexible, in particular at a time as dramatically complex as the one we’ve been living through over the past few weeks due to the Covid-19 situation.

Right from the start we instituted a series of strict rules for the purpose of safeguarding the health and safety of our employees in the workplace, in full respect of the regulations passed by the Italian government.

Now we have decided to temporarily halt manufacturing in our Italian sites, which will remain closed for three weeks as of this Friday 20th March because of an external economic situation that is momentarily impacting negatively the market.

Nevertheless, the company is not closing.

We are here for you, and for those who wish to continue choosing our products and to whom we will guarantee the best commercial assistance and an efficient delivery service.

We are still here, with our continuous innovation and our ongoing research into new products and solutions that we will soon be proud to launch.

We will come back even stronger than before, ready for the new challenges that await us!
