The Mercedes-Benz Advanced Design Studio is located in the historical Villa Salazar on the shores of Lake Como.

Mercedes-Benz Design - a life of creativity in Como.

Designers at the studio in Como are working on the interior concepts of the distant future, whereby color and trim play a central role.

The architecture and style of the villa in Como offers plenty of inspiration for the designers at the Mercedes-Benz Advanced Design Studio.

Inspiration from the world of fashion.

The villa, built around 1750, with its period frescos, elongated alignments and different floorings made of terracotta and wood, is extraordinarily inspiring for designers and situated within the triangle between Como, Milan and Turin. The region is home to the furniture and fashion industry and this tangible proximity influences designers in their daily activities.

Traditional craftsmanship.

As a result of the fact that traditional craftsmanship is highly regarded, this is an ideal environment for the Advanced Interior Design Studio. Consequently, creative heads in Como are very open to the regional influences and bring these inspirations to life as part of new vehicle interiors. New colours and materials generate new impulses and these are continually reconfigured, details are developed and the interior shapes are continuously enhanced according to the design philosophy of sensual purity.

At the Advanced Design Studio in Como the interior design of the Mercedes-Benz vehicles is developed – from the colours to the materials.
