Deco is an evolving company that has really clear ideas about its market positioning and about the distinctive peculiarities of its products, a characteristic so hard to find in an "X" sofa company. The idea of taking part to a start-up project with other young designer friends seemed to me interesting at once for the sharing of everybody's experiences, working closely with a young enterpreneur that wants to build pieces of furniture with passion in a historical context where few people show his unconditional courage.
