The new B&B Italia Outdoor 2018 catalogue is a picture book evoking different landscapes and the furnishings designed to accompany the experience of nature. The Outdoor collection caters to spectacular outdoor living: furnishings that combine comfort and functionality with the technical and formal qualities of every B&B Italia product.
Bay, designed by the British duo Doshi Levien, is a new collection of outdoor seats that stand out for their sculptural and monolithic yet visually light appearance. Their enveloping volumes accommodate padded rock-like seats and soft cushions that reflect the elegance, comfort and refinement of B&B Italia’s indoor products. Sensually shaped double braids create air pockets that grant transparency and lightness to the furnishings.
Fiore, designed by the Japanese designer Naoto Fukasawa, is a new collection of small dining tables and coffee tables characterised by the perfect formal balance and bold texture of the concrete finish, available in two colours: greige and white.
Naoto Fukasawa revealed, “Many years ago, I called my chairs ‘Papilio’ because their silhouettes reminded me of butterflies. Now I have called my latest project ‘Fiore’, or flower in Italian, because the Papilio Shell chairs sit around these tables like butterflies flying around a flower.”
Gio and Erica, both designed by Antonio Citterio, are two outdoor seating lines adding a touch of contemporary classicism to outdoor living.
