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.
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.
