VINCENT VAN DUYSEN
Paul is a seating system with elegant proportions and reassuring lines. A lightweight image, marked with distinctive double stitching and accentuated by the essential design of the die-cast aluminium feet. Elements with a generous width complete the system to guarantee comfortable seating with a welcoming and luxurious look.
Dives is the ultimate sofa, whose image is enhanced by the armrest that has a taut cover on the outside, and a quilted effect on the inside inspired by the classic chesterfield sofa. The point where the two finishes meet on the armrest is highlighted by a blanket stitch detail, which is also the profile for the cushions. The seat depth is shallow (cm 98 deep), and the feet area available in fabric or with a black shellac finish. Dives is also available as modular sofa with deeper elements (cm 104 deep), without the quilted internal detail.
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.
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.
