Ron Gilad’s new collection of furnishings, Grado°, underlines the designer’s interest in basic geometric shapes. 45°/tavolino. Series of small tables with extra-light transparent crystal top, available in various sizes and marked by both a monochrome finish, american walnut or black oak, and by a bi-colour finish. Complex but essential shapes, “open box” table, of which we can only see the contours, able to integrate into all furnishing solutions with character.
Dives is the ultimate sofa, whose image is enhanced by the armrest that has a taut cover on the outside, and a quilted effect on the inside inspired by the classic chesterfield sofa. The point where the two finishes meet on the armrest is highlighted by a blanket stitch detail, which is also the profile for the cushions. The seat depth is shallow (cm 98 deep), and the feet area available in fabric or with a black shellac finish. Dives is also available as modular sofa with deeper elements (cm 104 deep), without the quilted internal detail.
The design begins from a strongly contemporary seating system distinguished by a careful search for formal balance. The seating system support base is made of crosspiece with rounded steel feet connected to each other by a bar. All this is finished in pewter painted color. This seating system offers a sofa bed (cm 150 x 210), the only one in the B&B Italia collection, available through quick ship program.

Reversi ‘14 reveals a strong, rational personality and affirms its reputation for comfort and warmth. The 3-position backrest mechanism makes it possible to change the seat depth to create a rational space for work and a welcoming space for relaxing – both on the same sofa. Reversi ‘14 offers excellent modular solutions – its logical components can be assembled in a wide range of compositions that include linear elements, corner elements, chaise longue pieces and poufs. The structure in polyurethane foam in different thicknesses holds comfortable seat cushions. Backrests are organised in two configurations: cushions adjacent to one another to occupy all available space, and cushions spaced apart.
