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.

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.
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.
