Autumn has officially arrived and The Design Net are pleased to introduce B&B Italia’s stunning new arrivals to welcome the new season.
Naviglio is a dynamic collection of modular sofa’s designed by George Yabu and Glenn Pushelberg based on a riverbed's sinuous movement’s. The new sofa conveys a sense of comfort with soft and elegant lines, and harmonious configurations to adapt into any living room space. The seats are padded with polyurethane foam to cosily embrace the body and ensure the most appropriate support. A sofa designed without seat cushions and upholstery range comprising of leather and fabric, five variations of the new fabric to the collection, where white, grey, black and tortora colours interact.
The range complements a service table designed by Yabu Pushelberg studio, presents a transparent glass top to be positioned close to the seat. The slender bronzed nickel vertical axis is supported by a polished marble base, with a river stone-inspired shape.
“We aimed to create a collection that was a visual dialogue between structure and form; how shapes interact and may be brought together to create their own unique whole. We began the design process by taking an assortment of simple organic forms and playing with their interactions. Many resembled a relationship like that of oil and water, while others delivered the sweetness of strawberries and cream.”
“It was as though we were completing a puzzle with B&B Italia; gathering the pieces, assorting the colours and shapes and fitting them together through trial and error until it was complete. We are passionately proud of Naviglio, our first collection with B&B Italia, and see our first partnership as homage to our shared commitment to craft and creating for the world we want to live in.”
Liagò, a storage unit designed by Piero Lissoni, a collection inspired by the Venetian loggias. The collection consists of two low storage units with doors and drawers and one high storage unit with hinged and flap doors. They are made of brushed light oak, light canaletto walnut with raw or grey effect. The range includes lacquered finishes in 18 glossy and satin colours, which can radically transform each piece’s style. The upper tops can be in wood, lacquered, Carrara white marble, and Sahara Noir black marble. The interiors are covered with a refined silky, anti-scratch, anti-fingerprint, anthracite material and internal shelves made of etched smoky glass. Details features soft seals applied to the horizontal edges, concealed hinges, flap openings with hinge and hidden mechanism. These are sophisticated but discreet elements for this range of reassuring looking objects which hide high-level technological solutions - a new range of storage units ideal for dining and living areas.
“I tried to freeze some architectural elements by imagining these pieces of furniture as if they were pieces of architecture. Platforms, supporting pylons, containing sides, closed spaces – like buildings, and large terraces that open. In this case there are no people but, instead, one can place objects.”
