Lago, an emerging Italian furniture brand is being stocked by The Nest
Lago specialises in creating a highly innovative range of furniture that
integrates design and art, and extends the reach of colour and modularity in a customised
approach to furniture and storage.
Founded at the end of the 19th century by Policarpo Lago, an artisanal
woodworker, Lago has evolved into a design brand that not only takes a stimulating
approach to interior design but also embraces simplicity in all its forms to create
endless possibilities in customisable furniture including gravity defying
pieces such as Air Shelf and Weightless storage.
Air Shelf seemingly overcomes the force of gravity by suspending volumes
of storage in mid-air. This effect is achieved by using sheets of tempered
glass that provide a perception of space and light. Air Shelf is perfect as a room
divider or for creating separate zones within a larger space.
Weightless storage, another of Lago’s innovations, creates visual art in
the form of practical storage using ‘dead space’. Available as shelves or
cabinets, they can be customised to suit individual space and décor themes and also
suspended from the ceiling. These storage units are available in a vast choice of
finishes and colours, and have the effect of a sculptural piece within the
overall room setting.
The LagoLinear and DiagoLinear shelving ranges offer a different take on
storage systems. While the LagoLinear offers slim and minimalistic design that
can be attached to any vertical space within the home, DiagoLinear injects fun and
surprise into the equation by creating modular shelving that is installed at
varying angles and is suitable for children’s bedrooms, living areas and even
the home office. The LagoLinear comes in a range of modular elements that can
be customised to the user’s needs, space and colour preferences.
Committed to nurturing young and emerging talent, Lago has created a design
studio led by talented designers working alongside university students and
designers from around the world, constantly pushing the boundaries of
creativity and cultural exchange.
The Lago range of furniture and storage systems is available exclusively
through The Nest 45, a completely new approach to innovative Italian furniture
design for the kitchen, bathroom, living and bedroom housed in the impressive
heritage-listed Design Precinct at Cockatoo Island.
