This is a line of modular chests of drawers whose elements can be used individually or combined to form a large container unit. It’s a re-invention of the chest of drawers, standing between the rational and the traditional. Top in coloured glass, wood, glossy lacquered, matt or open grain lacquered. Drawers fronts in glossy lacquered, matt or open grain lacquered. A particular version with a refi ned open compartment and an aluminum structure supporting the drawers. Great care has been taken with the exterior matt or open grain lacquered finishes.
Edward Barber & Jay Osgerby first project for B&B Italia was Tobi-Ishi, a round dining table clearly inspired by Zen. The design duo are great enthusiasts of Japanese art and culture and the name and concept for this table came from the smooth stones (tobi-ishi) used as ornaments in traditional Japanese Zen gardens. The overhang of the table and the vertical trapezoidal bases set at right angles generate an essential sculptural figure that appears to change shape depending on the point of observation.
A service element for sofas, this table with basic lines and the utmost care for details is developed in five different sizes. Through this program it is available in the rectangular low table 180 cm with bronzed reflective glass top and painted black chrome support frame.
Designed for those who love comfort and modernity, intended to be an evergreen, the Michel seating system mirrors the design philosophy of its designer who shows a preference for simple shapes – pure and elegant in their linear form without any additional decoration to underscore the concept of function. The many elements can create both formal and social configurations in an extensive range of sizes.
The Frank collection features a wide range of finish options in neutral or bright colours. The asymmetrical position of the vertical elements enables the base to be drawn as close as possible to the seats. Through this program it is available in bronzed nickel.
