Lago Divan

Modular couches by an up-and-coming Italian furniture label


Following the success of 36e8Cucina kitchen suites from 2008, Lago is previewing its new Air collection of divans at Salone Internazionale del Mobile. The seating option takes yet another step in their pursuit of “total living,” and the Padua, Italy-based brand continues to make a splash with their innovative products for every room in the home. Designed by Daniele Lago, the divan is a close sibling to previous designs, particularly in the modularity of elements and colors typical of the young company.


With slight variations in the mix of seats and back modules, the divans create relaxingly efficient living spaces thanks to accessories such as small tables, cushions and arms. The key to Lago’s innovation is a load-bearing structure in aluminum and ingenious mounting system, which ensures quick and easy assembly of seats, backs and arms.


In addition, for the first time Lago researched sustainable and eco-friendly solutions, from the selection of suppliers and materials, to packaging and disposal. The result reveals their commitment to excellent, green design.


Lago’s divans will be on display through 19 April 2010 in Hall 8, booths A29-A28 at Fiera Rho-Pero. In addition, the company has concocted brainchild Appartamento, an actual flat that also works as a real show, with constant updates and live blogging. The piece is part of their international project Lago Appartamento. The hours for both projects are 10am-10pm.
