Special collection from B&B Italia for their 50-year anniversary

Published on : Friday, May 6, 2016

Japanese designer Naoto Fukasawa has created a sheepskin armchair and London studio Doshi Levien has produced footstools shaped like “marine creatures” for furniture brand B&B Italia’s 50th anniversary collection.

Fukasawa’s wooly chair is a special edition of his 2009 Grande Papilio armchair, and features a tall winged back and an accompanying footstool. The furniture will be available in only 50 numbered versions.

 
The Japanese designer has also created a set of new chairs, which come as plastic shell or upholstered versions, and rest on four-spoke bases. The Papilio Shell seating features aluminium armrests, and a winged-back design echoes the form of the Grande Papilio armchair. The chairs are available with caster-covered legs for indoor use, or as a stackable outdoor version with stainless steel supports.

Doshi Levien has also created a small armchair, made from a pair of leather or fabric-covered panels, and named Do-Maru after the leather plates worn by samurai warriors as armour. The chair is supported at the back with a pair of V-shaped legs, while the front of the seat rests on tubular metal legs placed at either side of the seat.

 
Doshi Levien’s Maru table is another addition to B&B Italia’s collection, and features a glossy round tabletop supported by a trio of die-cast aluminium legs. The table comes in two sizes, with the smaller table available in 16 colours, and the larger table in glass, wood or marble versions.
