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.
A service element for sofas, this table with basic lines and the utmost care for details is developed in five different sizes. Through this program it is available in the rectangular low table 180 cm with bronzed reflective glass top and painted black chrome support frame.

Reversi ‘14 reveals a strong, rational personality and affirms its reputation for comfort and warmth. The 3-position backrest mechanism makes it possible to change the seat depth to create a rational space for work and a welcoming space for relaxing – both on the same sofa. Reversi ‘14 offers excellent modular solutions – its logical components can be assembled in a wide range of compositions that include linear elements, corner elements, chaise longue pieces and poufs. The structure in polyurethane foam in different thicknesses holds comfortable seat cushions. Backrests are organised in two configurations: cushions adjacent to one another to occupy all available space, and cushions spaced apart.
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.
