Carlo Colombo is considered one of the most admired and respected contemporary architects in Italy and abroad thanks to his international visibility linked to the architecture and interior work.
He was born in 1967 at Carimate. In 1993 he graduated in Architecture from the Milan Polytechnic, but by 1991 he had already made contact with Giulio Cappellini, for whom he designed his first piece of furniture in 1992: the Kyoto bed, presented at the Salone del Mobile in Milan the same year.
In 2004 Colombo was named Designer of the Year in Tokyo. In 2009 he was one of the winners of the Good Design Award presented by the European Center for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies and The Chicago Athenaeum. A sort of ambassador of Italian design to the world, he gives lectures and conferences in Israel, Greece, Portugal, Slovenia, Ukraine, Australia, Russia, Britain, Brazil and China.
Colombo's work as a designer, initially focused on product and interior design, has been progressively extended to the construction sector. In 2009 he won an international competition for the design of two multi-functional towers in Abu Dhabi and his renewed interest in architecture has found scope in teaching in China, where he has lectured on design since 2011 at the De Tao Masters Academy in Beijing.
Maximum quality, aesthetical innovation, ability in processing and "Made in Italy" are the historical prerogatives of Giorgetti, originally founded as an artisanal cabinetmaking laboratory in Meda, Brianza, in 1898.
The indisputable protagonist of Giorgetti furniture is solid wood, a natural material and often the hidden core of its objects. The company has distinguished itself on the design furniture scene not only for the high quality of its raw materials but also for its manual skills tradition and heritage.
Giorgetti creations fully embrace the concept of Conceived and Manufactured in Italy: starting from design, creativity and style, all the way to production, the entire process is Made in Italy. Moreover, the collections are known for their functionality and quality materials which guarantee a long life, as well as being made by production processes which are totally environmentally friendly.
The Giorgetti style is characterized by exclusivity and atypical uniqueness: the aim to create original and recognizable collections was the prerequisite which led the company to collaborate with professionals - architects, urban planners, intellectuals, artists - who had never considered designing furniture. A brave initiative which started at the end of the 80s and continues today, imparting an exclusive design to Giorgetti’s pieces. This choice is accompanied by a shared ideal that both the company and the designers fully embrace: to create "timeless" objects which never go out of fashion.
Giorgetti is like an art and history gallery of Made in Italy, with design, manual skill and over a hundred years of tradition; a standard on the furniture sector scene.
