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.
DESIGNED BY ANTONIO CITTERIO
The centerpiece of modern lifestyle, the Charles has become a hallmark in the world of design. The light feeling especially conveyed by the essential design of the “inverted “L”- shaped feet, along with a single seat-cushion and a series of free cushions placed on the backrest is the distinctive feature of a sofa that has met with boundless success. The airy shape and simple profile make it, almost by contrast, extremely rich and innovative from a spatial standpoint, a system that encourages the creation of ever new compositions. The Charles includes an extensive family of elements that can meet every furnishing requirement, even the most personal demand for comfort.
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.
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 Up Series was designed in 1969 and has remained an iconic design piece within the B&B Italia collection for more than 40 years. The Up5 chair, known for its striking representation of feminine strength and struggle, continues to be meaningful and relevant. It reflects a world sensibility with symbolism, irony, beauty and is truly the epitome of a timeless design.
