DESIGNED BY NAOTO FUKASAWA
As fluid and harmonious as ever, identical to the indoor version, but with a lighter appearance thanks to the materials, the Papilio seating collection by Naoto Fukasawa now joins the Outdoor collection. The Grande Papilio, Piccola Papilio and Mini Papilio, in all three sizes, display their distinctive, single material appeal, with a grey anthracite colour polyethylene interlacing that adapts perfectly to their curves. The ottoman, of course, echoes Grande Papilio design with polyethylene interlacing.
The design allows both an erect and a more relaxed position by resting on one of the wings of the armrest. The formal balance results from the constant thickness of the body and by the profile of the seat, which is sinuous at the top and ends in the light steel frame. Its removable covers have metal zips on the back, which becomes a decorative motif.
The concept behind the Charles is to have a high seat modular sofa with all the elements available in different forms, types and sizes. Linear and corner compositions have been developed with these elements in mind, especially for the chaise lounge end units. The Charles’ peninsula-style compositions look especially beautiful as the centerpiece of a room. The single-seat cushion, the free pillows placed on the backrest and the pure lines of the die-cast aluminium feet give the Charles sofa a decidedly modern feel.
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.
