We love objects which own deep roots, excellent quality, and a strong evocative power.
Colé is a young Italian design brand, with a high-end production 100% made in Italy. Our mission is to create design icons, suitable for furnishing the homes of sophisticated and international clients. Our expressive research is inspired by Scandinavian design, the Bauhaus, Italian architects of the ‘50s, ethnic handcraft, houses of famous writers of the XX century and all artists who wrote the code of modernity as Mondrian, Sonia Delaunay, Moholy Nagy, Brancusi, the graphic genius of Escher among others. We love trips to far lands starting from Argentina, Laura's birthplace, where our dream started. From there comes the name Colé, tied to a common memory: an element of color which makes us happy just thinking about it.
Colé is born from the experience of Matteo De Ponti, architect, who grew up in a historic Milanese design family, and the artistic sensibility of Laura Macagno, degree in Economics and passionate of art and design.
We love design and we aim to create with our customers a sort of empathy. Our best day is when a client quote like this:
"Furniture are amazing and they fit perfectly in our sea view home. Thanks again. It was a pleasure to meet Colé.
At this stage our focus is on the dining and living room. Mainly chairs, tables, armchairs, small containers, screens, and some accessories. Our products are suitable for the house and home office, as well as for contract of hotels, restaurants, showrooms, offices.
The collection is designed in collaboration with established designers and is the result of rethinking traditional furniture with a certain degree of contamination of signs, materials and cultures, which leads to reinterpret many archetypal forms in a light and ironic way.
