DESIGNED BY ANTONIO CITTERIO
Gio, designed by Antonio Citterio, is the new series with a contemporary classic accent dedicated to living in the open air. A complete range of sofas, end units, chaise longue, sunbeds, armchairs, chairs, tables and complements which have been developed from solid teak structures with a special antique grey finish, which gives the wood a particular lived-in aspect and silver-grey reflective quality. Through the quick ship program the linear sofa 238 cm and the rectangular small table 120 cm are available.
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.
Naoto Fukasawa continues his research on upside-down truncated cone shaped seats, and, for this project addresses B&B Italia’s need to explore the seating with armrests. Two forms are ergonomically designed and developed to obtain a relaxing easy armchair with a high back and headrest, and a conversation armchair with a low back. Through this program it is available the low back version.
