The second LAGO contest is open until 18 February. Participate at http://contest.lago.it: sign up and you could be an instant winner of an object from the Filodolce collection or a gift card, and you will be entered in the final draw for a trip to one of the great European capitals of design.
While waiting to find out who will be the winner of the trip, we went to interview Vitantonio of Altamura (Bari), the Italian winner of a Wildwood table, one of the prizes offered in the first Lago contest, “Design is changing“.
Vitantonio, how did you find out about the Lago contest and why did you decide to participate?
My fiancée and I stopped by our city’s Lago retailer to check out the furniture, in advance of our wedding. Entering the store, we were immediately struck by the table that the Tucci shop had on display, paired with a stunning glass Lago kitchen. We knew right then that this would be the brand for our furniture. Mr Tucci, the owner of the shop, told us about the contest, which was very easy to participate in. So we did and fortune followed us!
What do you like in particular about Lago design?
I really like the pairing of glass and wood. And also the minimalist, linear and basic style of its components, just like the contest prizes: simple but at the same time stylish.
What is your favourite room of the house?
My favourite is the bedroom, since it is a place where you can relax.
What are your passions?
Like all guys, I like to play football with old friends. Another of my passions, and this is a little particular and not for everyone, is working in my kitchen garden at weekends. Luckily, thanks to my grandfather, my family has a farm with annexed land.
Where will you put the Air Wildwood table?
In the dining room, which is a special space. Entering the room, it will be the first thing you notice, since the legs are glass and it almost seems like the table surface is floating in the air.
The Wildwood table was delivered by Franco Tucci, the owner of Tucci Arredamenti, during the award event. If you want to find out more about the Air Wildwood table, take a look at this post.
