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.
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.
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.
A successful design strategy that achieves a balance of functional and aesthetic features, and entrusts the details to the right role: the Ray seating system is designed for a long life. Modular, available in two depths, with an extensive compositional range that includes linear and corner elements, a chaise lounge and ottoman. It stands out due to the tailoring detail of the blanket stitch that runs along the profiles of the cover, both in tonal and in contrasting hues.
Designed for those who love comfort and modernity, intended to be an evergreen, the Michel seating system mirrors the design philosophy of its designer who shows a preference for simple shapes – pure and elegant in their linear form without any additional decoration to underscore the concept of function. The many elements can create both formal and social configurations in an extensive range of sizes.
