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.
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.
The J.J. family presents armchairs with a different look and a wide variety of materials: with a steel-rod structure supporting a wooden frame, they convey a certain degree of lightness. Entirely made of thermo-treated ash wood, they hint at traditional aesthetics. The armchair fitted with a sleigh, the expression of the traditional rocking chair, becomes even more glamorous when it is attired in long-haired Mongolian lamb fur.
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.
