DESIGNED BY ANTONIO CITTERIO
A classic is born. Different types of seating: armchairs, chairs and chaise longue are included in the collection. The folding armchair revisits the classic shape of a movie director’s chair, with special details. The mesh and metal parts are finished in two colours, white and tortora, creating two colorway options in a single colour. The table and small table have the same frame and top in painted aluminium and are available in select colors. The collection expresses Anotnio Citterio’s stable elegance. Set of small mattress, headrest cushion and cover in also available separately.
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.
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.
