Throughout his career Castiglioni worked to raise design to an ever-higher level of synthesis —stripping design down to the very core and eliminating everything superfluous. One of the many proofs of this approach is the Comodo from 1988. Comodo is a versatile piece of furniture designed by Achille Castiglioni and Giancarlo Pozzi. It consists of a long metal stem, mounted on a tripod and supporting a wood cabinet.The cabinet is set off-centre and has a tray-shaped lid that opens and closes with hinges. This elegant multi-purpose unit can be used as a bedside table, a tray, a coffee table or simply as a storage box for all your favorites. Supposedly Castiglioni, being a big fan of sweets, used his own Comodo to store candy.
