Ceramic candle holder, available in black and white. It is made ofthree small equal-size tubes, set at different angles and joining atthe centre to support a fourth, perfectly vertical one. The objectreflects the world of nature, recalling out-of-scale bird claws orroots looked at through a microscope.
A classic shape, a truncated cone supporting a cylinder, derives its strong personality from the matching of colours, obviously strong ones in line with the Sottsass style, and materials, with ceramic for the base and glass for the lampshade.
Backstage, the new B&B Italia project for bedrooms is designed by Antonio Citterio. It is the most innovative and international solution to the storage problem of traditional wardrobes. The key feature is its refined and sophisticated image: the use of precious materials, the exclusive finishing details, the wide range of variants, the boiserie effect of surfaces designed for Backstage to merge into various spaces, and not only into the bedroom. The door opening system inspired by contemporary architecture offers a revolutionary solution: the innovative mechanism developed and patented by B&B Italia opens the full height doors with simultaneous rotation and translation (roto-translation) that ensures reduced bulk and better accessibility to internal compartments. Backstage also proposes an exclusive choice of accessories and fittings that underscore expert craftsmanship and the quality and purity of materials.
A small piece of great design.The indisputable icon of Italian design on the international scale, the UP5_6 armchair, was produced in a version for children from age 3 up: UPJ.The Junior version of the chair for children is perfectly proportioned to be the same as the original but with reduced dimensions. It is an actual design armchair - comfortable and playful at the same time, with a captivating shape and lively colours, to furnish with taste and enhance children's rooms or the smaller spaces in tiny apartments.
Partition and storage unit, it is soft and statuesque, designed to display and hold the items we need only occasionally. Partition wall dedicated to domestic environments, it is made of felt, comes in two sizes and rests on a steel frame.
The curved wood top that conveys softness to the wood is applied to a light writing desk with drawers and designed to be fitted with the most advanced technologies. Also available with thick leather covered top.
A sheet of leather “pinched” in two places at the base: here is where the movement and natural inclination of the Alys headboard originate. The Buratti brothers are once again managing a material that they know well because they’ve already used it on the Doyl chair when they explored the theme of upholstered leather, made more comfortable than with traditional processes. For Alys, they designed a comfortable, protective headboard, a very effective shape that has thin perimeter strips marked by a lengthwise seam. The bed frame can be placed at two different heights, thanks to a standard equipment made of two sets of feet (h. 5cm or 15cm). The bed surface was designed to be low specifically to suggest an effect of suspension and floating of the super-comfortable mattress.
From sofa to bed. The design of the new Richard bed is defined by a high bed side running along the perimeter of the bed and the sartorial detail of stitching with the insertion of a raw cut profile. The height of the lateral bed sides allows inserting any type of mattress supports, from metal to wooden slatted base or an “under mattress” with springs, or slatted base with manual mechanism.
The bed version of Febo is available in six different sizes with an elegant headboard and the added comfort of two back cushions. For all elements are available the same characteristic of the collection: the single material and the visible blanket stitch.
Research into softness and comfort is the same base that produced the famous chair that originated this series. Soft and geometric, simple and complex, but above all - cosy and welcoming: a headboard with strong personality, in a single size, that plays on the visual effects of the stitching and accommodates the box springs.
Simplicity, immediacy and comfort were the concepts guiding the functional development of the entire Papilio series: the Grande Papilio and Piccola Papilio armchairs, the chairs Papilio and Mini Papilio, the Love Papilio sofa and the Papilio bed.“I want to fall asleep immediately. This is what a bed should make you think about when you look at it. Feeling great.” said the Japanese designer Fukasawa.The quest for comfort moves to the bedroom and the double bed is the central element. Next to it, a night table holds an open book... “that I will never finish!”
