The new modular seating system named after the coral formation.
The system is built on three basic platforms that are complemented by armrest and backrest elements to form various types of seats: sofas, dormeuses, corner-end modules, single or modular elements with chaise longue and ottomans.
The frames have light, slender lines and are applied on high die-cast supports with metal profile emphasizing the line between the structure and upholstery. Two finishes are available, pewter and black chrome.
Bolsters can be inserted between the seat cushion and the base structure to provide an additional support or become an armrest or backrest at will.
B&B Italia’s uniqueness lies in an unrivaled blend of creativity, innovation and industrial potential. The artful anticipation of trends and expert response to the evolution of taste and the needs of living deliver a collection of contemporary design furnishing, whose premium quality marks an impressive chapter in the history of Italian design.
