B&B Italia celebrates 15 years of the Outdoor Collection in Milan
In 15 years, B&B Italia has managed to create unique outdoor collections that are now found in private homes and major resorts. Some of these collections have entered the imagination of design enthusiasts and professionals, creating milestones that have become the preferential choice of those in search of beauty. Every designer involved has pushed themself and expressed their individual style to the fullest, creating a unique variety of approaches and solutions.
D Studio Milano reserves the store windows and the central area to the most significant products of the collection.
Canasta by Patricia Urquiola, the first outdoor collection launched in 2007, continues to impress today with its polyethylene macro weave and fusion of Mediterranean tradition and Vienna straw. While Crinoline, whose three-dimensional interlacing and big soft curves, create the signature style of an iconic collection that has had a lasting impact on the whole sector.
On display also Tobi-Ishi Outdoor by Edward Barber & Jay Osgerby, originally designed as an indoor table then remastered as a cement version for the outdoors, continuing its interplay of light and shadow and Ayana by Naoto Fukasawa, a unique hybrid of Eastern styles and Scandi accents.
Antonio Citterio has created many successful designs, all marked by aesthetic and technical innovation: Mirto Outdoor, which began with a sun-lounger and developed into a complete range of chairs, tables, small tables and complements. And again Gio, Erica and Ribes, comfortable and colorful seating for total relaxation ina stylish interior setting until the most recent creations, Ribes and Hybrid seating systems.
Among the 2022 novelties, Pablo Outdoor by Vincent Van Duysen and Borea by Piero Lissoni, the latter collection that focuses on the theme of sustainability and environmental circularity.
Quality, Research and technological innovation, ergonomics and comfort, creativity are B&B Italia Outdoor values, the same that characterise the distinctive identity and history of B&B Italia. Each collection develops these values, expressing them with equal determination in the indoor and outdoor designs, both in residential and contract projects.
