Salone Del Mobile 2019
with B&B italia and Maxalto
New designs for the entire home from some of the world’s most celebrated designers for B&B Italia and Maxalto.
At this year’s edition of Fuorisalone in Milan, B&B Italia had quite a number of new products on show.
What they all have in common is a clear vision – one that is still obvious in the final designs.
Dock sofa system by Piero Lissoni
The Dock’s shape is based around a solid platform which supports the eclectic compositions that span horizontally. The platform is a dynamic element, which extends for the sofa’s entire length to form a base. The Dock system is also accompanied by a series of complementary elements. After spending some time on Dock, you can leave the port and set sail for unfamiliar places, rested, and refreshed.
Pablo armchair by Vincent Van Duysen
Pablo has a double thick leather layer with light seat padding which is barely visible but capable of ensuring comfort. The appealing shape is defined by an accentuated depth and a slightly inclined front: Pablo suggests new proportions, calibrated to the millimetre, which make this seat an innovative meeting point between small armchair and chaise longue.
Diesis 40 by Antonio Citterio & Paolo Nava
Diesis is not only a B&B Italia classic, but an absolute icon of contemporary design. 2019 marks the 40th anniversary of its first appearance – an important landmark which has been celebrated with some design and structural updates. These updates return to the original concept while simultaneously advancing the design towards the future.
Jack wallsystem by Michael Anastassiades
“This bookcase system started as a stacking exercise of an assembly of rods of the same diameter. The selected design is a reduced configuration, providing the optimum structure and modularity to address a diverse range of interior spaces. The technical solutions are discreet, allowing for arrangements that feel specifically fitted to a particular room.”
Up 50 by Gaetano Pesce
To celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of Gaetano Pesce’s Up5_6, B&B Italia has opened its wardrobe up to new solid colours: orange red, navy blue, petrol green, emerald green, cardamom. There is also the 50th Anniversary Special Edition, striped beige/petrol green, which refers to the original colour palette of 1969.
Tesaurus by Antonio Citterio
The shape underlines the high quality of the craftsmanship, starting with the curved wooden doors that open to reveal slightly protruding shelves, and a continuous profile that follows the volume’s. Over the passage of time the parchment surface matures so that, like a good wine, it will be transformed and acquire new sophisticated hues. Each piece in this collection becomes a unique object, difficult to imitate and authentically exclusive.
