B&B Italia is delighted to present three exclusive projects by Antonio Citterio for their outdoor collection 2017. The challenge was in taking outdoors all the qualities, which have been so far distinctive features of B&B Italia indoor proposals: technological innovation, ergonomic and formal research, quality and comfort.
RAY OUTDOOR NATURAL and RAY OUTDOOR FABRIC
After the success of the indoor collection, the Ray seating system by Antonio Citterio adapts itself for outdoor use with two new seating collections, “Natural” and “Fabric”. Both have in common a light extruded aluminium frame but are differentiated by different weaving and materials.
Ray Outdoor Natural features a “rope” weave inspired by natural Manila hemp and designed to perfectly merge with nature. It uses a textilene fibre designed for outdoor use.
Ray Outdoor Fabric features a “ribbon” weave tecnique made of polypropylene fibre that is resistant to both UV radiation and atmospheric agents.
The colour range, features from turquoise to blue, or acid green to tortora and a bright bordeaux. The range in both collections “Natural” and “Fabric” include sofas available in two depths as well as modular elements such as terminal elements or chaise longues and armchairs.
The sunbed is available only in the Ray Outdoor Fabric version.
The series comprises of an armchair, sofa, and chairs, including a stackable version. They offer a technological blend of extruded and die-cast aluminium elements. Their lightness and design makes them ideal for both public and residential settings, featuring seat and back cushions for ergonomic comfort together with strength for outdoor use.
The painted frames are available in three finish combinations: white painted aluminium frame with tortora colour polypropylene fibre interlacing, tortora painted aluminium frame with tortora colour polypropylene fibre interlacing, and finally anthracite painted aluminium frame with anthracite colour polypropylene fibre interlacing.
A collection of large rectangular and round dining tables featuring natural teak and featuring a central insert in the top made of Calacatta white porcelain ceramic. The collection also features a matching chair in natural teak with sinuous harmonious lines that are inspired from the best Nordic designs. It is characterised by an interlacing in polypropylene fibre that is ideal for outdoor use. The beige coloured interlacing has been chosen to compliment the natural teak frame. Comfort is guaranteed by seat and back cushions.
