In the crowded world of domestic design, Lago takes its place as an emerging brand, thanks to a collection of stimulating products and a corporate philosophy which embraces interaction between business and art, coupled with on-going research into sustainable development.
A company headquarters with the spirit of a home. The central role in the business is once again occupied by the people; opening up the territory and promoting economic and cultural development in an intelligent manner : after all, the man who creates is also the man who uses.
A studio which hosts young university students and designers from around the world: creativity, friendship and the exchanges which enrich both the mind the work created, these elements come together in our products.
Simplicity in the forms - subtraction rather than decoration for its own sake; ample possibilities for customisation through colour and modularity; quality materials combined with the skill of the craftsman; accessible prices. These are the elements which make a Lago product immediately recognisable.

One of the most iconic brands in the world, MARTINI® is the leading name in Italian winemaking and a purveyor of the highest quality aromatized and sparkling wines. The award-winning, vibrant and bittersweet taste of the MARTINI® range is the result of secret blends of more than 40 botanicals sourced from the finest locations across the globe. Created in 1863 in Turin, Italy, MARTINI® is today part of the Bacardi group portfolio and continues to be one of the market leader of the category. The MARTINI® brand’s longstanding relationship with motorsport and rich history of both sponsorship and participation in worldwide sporting events began in 1968 with the creation of Martini Racing™. This bold and ambitious move resulted in a pioneering sponsorship program that saw MARTINI® become one of the first-ever non-motorsport entrants to sponsor a racing team.
With the brand’s return to Formula One™, a new generation will fall in love with the gioia di vivere (the Italian “joy of living”) that MARTINI® brings to the world.
