Hilton partners with Poliform Contract to revamp a silk factory in Lake Como, Italy

Hilton partnered with local design firm Poliform Contract to revamp a silk factory in Lake Como, Italy. The Hilton Lake Como was furnished and designed by Poliform Contract with Dario Piero Cazzaniga and Monica Limonta.

Located in Lake Como in Italy at the Swiss border, the 170-room hotel has amenities overlooking villas and gardens. The Hilton Lake Como pays homage to the Lombardian city's past and present as a major silk center, as the hotel's front-most building is repurposed. It was once used as a silk factory until the early-80s.

To complement the surrounding landscape and nature, Poliform Contract outfitted the entire hotel with a contemporary aesthetic, combining clean, minimal lines and luxurious materials.
