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.
The components are characterized by a simple design of reduced thickness that offers specific details and a wide array of materials and finishes. The table tops range from the reflections of glass to compact marbles onto the different grains and colours of wood: available in quick ship program the rectangular version 250 cm, with glossy frisé eucalypt top and black chrome die-cast aluminium base.
A sheet of leather “pinched” in two places at the base: here is where the movement and natural inclination of the headboard originate. It has a comfortable and protective shape with remarkable formal simplicity and very thin sides marked by a lengthwise seam. The bed surface, which can be adjusted to two heights, has an effect of suspension and floating of the super-comfortable mattress.
A successful design strategy that achieves a balance of functional and aesthetic features, and entrusts the details to the right role: the Ray seating system is designed for a long life. Modular, available in two depths, with an extensive compositional range that includes linear and corner elements, a chaise lounge and ottoman. It stands out due to the tailoring detail of the blanket stitch that runs along the profiles of the cover, both in tonal and in contrasting hues.
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.
