The new Portal Bar designed by the Swedish architecture studio Claeesson Koivisto Rune has been inaugurated during the Stockholm Design Week, the most important Scandinavian design week of the year (February, 4th-10th 2019). The bar has been opened next to the Portal Restaurant, a well-known place which opened back in 2016 under the helm of chef Klas Lindber, which is famous for the combination of French and Nordic elements.
The Portal Bar in Stockholm
The Portal Bar has been decorated in dark hues to contrast the blonde and bright interiors of the already established Portal Restaurant next door. It provides a more casual location where guests can eat on small plates and drink Nordic craft beers, cocktails, or biodynamic wines.
Mårten Claesson, Eero Koivisto e Ola Rune have engaged the Swedish artist Jesper Waldersten, which depicts abstract faces and fish-like creatures on the dark blue walls.
An additional Nordic touch is provided by Colombo Design LUND handles – Graphite Mat finish – designed by the Swedish architecture studio Claeesson Koivisto Rune back in 2016 and assembled on the interior doors of the bar.

Colombo Design bathroom collections will be displayed at Batibouw 2019, the Belgian trade fair dedicated to the construction industry that will take place at the Brussels Expo Center (Brussels) from February 1st till March 3rd 2019.

Our Belgian distributor AquaPrestige will be very pleased to meet you at booth no. 7110, pavillon 7 to present you Colombo Design bathrooms accessories.
Bathroom accessories in a new white dress? Why not!
Although the polished and brushed treatments have long been the undisputed sovereign of the bathroom, here are two new finishes for the collection Look: black and opaque white.
For those who are thinking of a candid bath, almost a domestic spa; for those who know that certain nuances will always be current; for those looking for something different from gray and its 50 shades, the solution is the line designed by Luca Colombo: Look in white finish.
After all, the tradition and quality of the bathroom design by Colombo Design, get married, it is appropriate to say, in white.
The entire line is now available in this new, minimalist and sophisticated variant.
In line with present colour trends, Colombo Design continues to expand its range of bathroom accessories in Matt Black finish. Black is one of the key colour used by interior designers when selecting the coverings and the bathrooms accessories to enrich these ambients.
In addition to Lookrange, now the Pluscollection of the designer Piet Billekens is available in black matt finish, a collection of bathroom accessories that embodies the perfect balance between concept and function.

We are pleased to announce you that the new Colombo Design website is on-line.
All contents are now presented in a modern, functional and responsive graphic layout to let you browse by desktop and by your mobile device.
Easy to use and to browse, the website has been also optimized for search engines (SEO) and it is the result of a more extensive effort to improve our presence on the Internet, where social networks have taken on great importance nowadays.
With this article we announce the launch of “Handle with care“, the bilingual Italian-English magazine of Colombo Design. The half yearly magazine will represent our direct and honest way to communicate our news and our corporate initiatives.
Cesana and Colombo Design have strengthened the strategic partnership that already tied them since 2014 for the production and marketing of shower enclosures in Italy and on all the main foreign markets.
Colombo Design has acquired a corporate participation of Cesana, supporting the founding partners in the management of the company and making available to it its own production and logistics structure, one of the most modern and efficient in the sector at a European level.
From this month the production of shower enclosures has been integrated into the production unit of Terno d’Isola (BG).
The commercial and distribution structure was strengthened in Italy with the opening of a prestigious exhibition space in Via Solferino 18 in Milan. Important news will follow in the coming months; also relevant are the investments planned for the development of products with high innovative content.
Among the important novelties that further implement the collection of handles produced by Colombo Design through eco-compatible production processes (as required by the Green Made company protocol), stands out “Ama”, the first handle in the world with a triangular shape. Ama is signed by Andrea Maffei Architects, Isozaki’s partner in the design of the Allianz Tower within the Citylife project, which has changed, due to its height, the skyline of Milan.
Andrea Maffei, one of the protagonists of contemporary Italian architecture, talks about his handle: “To love (“AMAre in Italian): this is the secret to open all the doors of life. For this long journey, the form could only be absolute and universal as the origin of man. The triangle overcomes the challenge of time and for the first time translates into a handle, the object that opens and closes endless stories.”
