Carlo Colombo was born in 1967 at Carimate. In 1993 he graduated in Architecture from the Milan Polytechnic, but by 1991 he had already made contact with Giulio Cappellini, for whom he designed his first piece in 1992: the Kyoto bed, presented at the Salone del Mobile in Milan the same year.

Colombo’s work as a designer, initially focused on product and interior design, has been progressively extended to the construction sector in Italy and abroad. In 2009 he won an international competition for the design of two multi-functional towers in Abu Dhabi and his renewed interest in architecture has found scope in teaching in China, where he has lectured on design since 2011 at the De Tao Masters Academy in Beijing.
