VINCENT VAN DUYSEN
Anton is a bed that perfectly expresses Vincent Van Duysen’s design philosophy, where essentiality and carefully chosen materials achieve a perfect synthesis. Delicate but clean lines for a harmonious aesthetic balance, the result of reducing anything superfluous.
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.
DESIGNED BY ANTONIO CITTERIO
The centerpiece of modern lifestyle, the Charles has become a hallmark in the world of design. The light feeling especially conveyed by the essential design of the “inverted “L”- shaped feet, along with a single seat-cushion and a series of free cushions placed on the backrest is the distinctive feature of a sofa that has met with boundless success. The airy shape and simple profile make it, almost by contrast, extremely rich and innovative from a spatial standpoint, a system that encourages the creation of ever new compositions. The Charles includes an extensive family of elements that can meet every furnishing requirement, even the most personal demand for comfort.
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.
Square, rectangular or circular in shape and set in the centre of a room or next to the sofa, the Lithos collection include tables with tops in black Portoro marble, black marquinia marble, white Calacatta marble and beige travertine marble. They are also available in a wooden version with slatted upper and lower surfaces in grey oak, brown oak, light brushed oak or black brushed oak finishes. The frame is in painted bronzed nickel steel. Through this program it is available as a square low table 35 x 35” with a Calacatta marble top.
