When architecture meets art
Fog wafts engulf the mountain backdrop of Lake Como as we reach the old silk cloth factory in Como very early in the morning. Marco Vido, a trained architect, who received his diploma in Milan in 1985, has been living and working here in his fantastic loft for more than 15 years. Marco has created a lively and individualistic object out of his 200 sqm studio. The industrial charm, the 6-metre-high concrete ceilings, the many wooden elements and Marco’s skills lend the loft an indescribably feel-good atmosphere. It also reminds us of a personal museum in which you can discover something new everywhere you look.
Marco has always had a special relationship with the arts – around ten years ago he decided to express his passion and love for colours and shapes professionally. “It was more of a gut feeling”, he says smilingly and shows us the newest painting he is working on. His art is a strong contrast to his ergonomic and geometrical interior design. It gives the impression that he wants to disrupt his linear geometry through colour and brushstrokes. “You know, Architecture is a beautiful thing, but it’s always for a client. With painting, the client is me."
Not everyone has to grab a paintbrush in order to give their interiors a personal touch, though. Individual preferences have been paramount to bordbar since 2006. Every single trolley is handcrafted and tailormade to each customer in our Cologne-based manufacture. Our in-house graphics department is able to realise virtually any idea.
