Welcome to
B&B Italia

FOUNDED IN 1966 AS THE RESULT OF THE ENTREPRENEURIAL FARSIGHTEDNESS OF PIERO AMBROGIO BUSNELLI, B&B ITALIA IS A LEADING ITALIAN COMPANY IN THE INTERNATIONAL SCENE OF DESIGN FURNISHINGS FOR BOTH HOME (B&B ITALIA HOME DIVISION) AND CONTRACT PURPOSES (B&B ITALIA CONTRACT DIVISION). THE FIRM DISTINGUISHED ITSELF FROM THE ONSET FOR ITS INDUSTRIAL CALLING BY INTRODUCING A MANAGERIAL APPROACH TO CORPORATE ORGANISATION, THUS GOING AGAINST THE HANDCRAFTING, FAMILY-RUN RATIONALE TYPICAL OF THE SECTOR. BASED IN THE NORTH OF MILAN, THE FIRM’S PRESTIGIOUS HEADQUARTERS WERE DESIGNED BY R. PIANO AND R. ROGERS IN 1972. ITS PRODUCTS HAVE CONTRIBUTED TO WRITING THE HISTORY OF ITALIAN DESIGN, THE ADVENTUROUS HISTORY OF THE SUCCESS OF TASTE, TECHNOLOGIES AND CREATIVITY THAT HAVE MADE ITALY FAMOUS THROUGHOUT THE WORLD AND DISTRIBUTED THE “MADE IN ITALY” BRAND ON INTERNATIONAL MARKETS. THE COLLECTION OF B&B ITALIA FURNISHINGS ISSUES FROM THE SKILL TO REPRESENT CONTEMPORARY CULTURE AND TO PROMPTLY RESPOND TO THE EVOLUTION OF LIVING HABITS AND REQUIREMENTS. MODERN FURNISHING ELEMENTS THAT ARE STRONGLY DISTINCTIVE AND CHARACTERISED BY EXCEPTIONAL QUALITY AND TIMELESS ELEGANCE ARE THE RESULT OF THE UNIQUE UNION OF CREATIVITY, INNOVATION AND INDUSTRIAL KNOW-HOW.

RESEARCH, WHICH HAS ALWAYS BEEN A KEY STRATEGIC FACTOR IN THE CORPORATE DEVELOPMENT POLICY, IS CONDUCTED BY THE INTERNAL R&D CENTRE THAT IS A REAL FORGE OF CULTURAL MEETINGS AND EXPERIENCES, STRONGLY FUELLED BY PARTNERSHIPS WITH INTERNATIONAL DESIGNERS. THE UNIQUE FEATURES OF EACH PRODUCT CONVEY THE VALUES OF RESEARCH, CREATIVITY AND QUALITY THAT FORM THE DNA OF THE COMPANY.

BY DISTINGUISHING ITSELF ON THE INTERNATIONAL SCENE FOR INNOVATION, QUALITY, DESIGN AND PRESTIGE, BOTH IN THE SECTOR OF HOME FURNISHINGS THROUGH THE TWO BRANDS B&B ITALIA AND MAXALTO, AND IN THE CONTRACT SECTOR, B&B ITALIA HAS JOINED THE ALTAGAMMA FOUNDATION THAT CONVERGES ITALIAN COMPANIES OF INTERNATIONAL REPUTE, WHICH OPERATE IN THE UPSCALE RANGE OF THE MARKET AND EXPRESS ITALIAN CULTURE AND STYLE IN CORPORATE AND PRODUCT MANAGEMENT

RESEARCH AND
EXPERIMENTATION

RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT CENTRE

RESEARCH IS A CRUCIAL STRATEGIC FACTOR IN THE CORPORATE DEVELOPMENT POLICY IN WHICH B&B ITALIA INVESTS CONSIDERABLE HUMAN AND FINANCIAL RESOURCES (OVER 3% OF THE CORPORATE TURNOVER). THE INTERNAL R&D CENTRE FUELS ONGOING RESEARCH, EXPERIMENTATION AND INNOVATION THAT RANGES FROM PRODUCT DESIGN TO CORPORATE IDENTITY AND, FINALLY, THE INNOVATION OF MATERIALS AND TECHNOLOGIES. IN TERMS OF PRODUCT, CR&S ENCOURAGES, INTERPRETS AND DIRECTS THE CREATIVE ENERGIES OF DESIGNERS, THUS FUELLING A CONTINUOUS INNOVATIVE PROCESS. DESIGNERS MAKE THE MOST OF CORPORATE KNOW-HOW, CONTRIBUTING THEIR INDIVIDUAL COMPETENCES AND CREATIVE EXPRESSIONS TO MIRROR THE UNIQUE NATURE AND PERSONALITY OF THE B&B ITALIA BRAND. THEY INCLUDE FIGURES OF THE LIKES OF ANTONIO CITTERIO, PATRICIA URQUIOLA, NAOTO FUKASAWA, ZAHA HADID, MARIO BELLINI, JEFFREY BERNETT, GAETANO PESCE, PAOLO PIVA, STUDIO KAIROS AND MANY OTHERS. MOREOVER, CR&S COORDINATES THE IMAGE OF B&B ITALIA AND HAS AN INTERNAL GRAPHICS AND ADVERTISING, PR AND COMMUNICATION OFFICE FOR DESIGNING COMMERCIAL SPACES, BESIDES CLASSROOMS FOR TRAINING SESSIONS, PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT LABORATORIES, A HISTORICAL ARCHIVE, PHOTOGRAPHY ROOM AND, FINALLY, THE CORPORATE SHOWROOM. WITH THE PRIZED CONTRIBUTION OF CR&S, B&B ITALIA PROMOTED AND STILL PROMOTES SOME OF THE MAJOR INTERNATIONAL SUCCESS PRODUCTS, AND STANDS OUT AS A TECHNOLOGICALLY ADVANCED COMPANY WITH A VERY HIGH INNOVATIVE POTENTIAL. THE HISTORY OF THE COMPANY RECORDS MANY SPECIAL MENTIONS AND ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS, INCLUDING 4 “COMPASSO D’ORO” AWARDS, THE MOST PRESTIGIOUS OF WHICH WAS OBTAINED IN 1989 “FOR THE ONGOING INTEGRATION PROCESS IMPLEMENTED TO COMBINE THE VALUES OF TECHNICAL AND SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH WITH THOSE REQUIRED FOR PRODUCT FUNCTION AND EXPRESSION.”

TECHNOLOGY

B&B ITALIA HAS BEEN ESTABLISHED WITH A STRONG INDUSTRIAL AND TECHNOLOGICAL CALLING THAT, BESIDES BREAKING AWAY FROM THE SET PATTERNS OF THE SECTOR, LEADS THE COMPANY TO FACE CONTINUOUS CHALLENGES AND TO PERFECT ITS KNOW-HOW TO MERGE CREATIVE IDEAS AND DESIGN KNOW-HOW. A WINNING CHOICE ON WHICH THE COMPANY BUILDS ITS INTERNATIONAL SUCCESS. B&B ITALIA CONSIDERS TECHNOLOGY AS THE BASIC TOOL TO PURSUE A DUAL OBJECTIVE. ON THE ONE HAND IT SOLVES PRODUCTION ISSUES BY EXPERIMENTING WITH NEW MATERIALS AND TECHNOLOGIES, EVER FOCUSED ON ACHIEVING THE HIGHEST EFFICIENCY STANDARDS, AND ON THE OTHER HAND IT IS TRANSLATED INTO A TANGIBLE ADVANTAGE FOR THE FINAL CLIENT WHO ENJOYS THE RESULTS IN TERMS OF PRODUCT QUALITY AND COMFORT. SEVERAL RECORDS HAVE MARKED THE HISTORY OF THE COMPANY, NAMELY THE HIGH-TECH PROCESS OF COLD POLYURETHANE FOAM MOULDING, INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTION OF FIBREGLASS-REINFORCED ARTEFACTS PRE-IMPREGNATED WITH SYNTHETIC RESINS (IN PARTNERSHIP WITH BAYER), THE USE OF DACRON UPHOLSTERY (WITH DUPONT DE NEMOURS), THE PRODUCTION OF STEEL FRAMES FOR SOFAS WITH A TEN YEAR GUARANTEE AND THE INTEGRATION OF MECHANISMS DESIGNED BY CR&S AND OTHERS. THE TECHNOLOGICAL CALLING IS ALSO EXPRESSED BY THE CONTINUOUSLY UPDATED PROCESSES AND SYSTEMS, AND BY THE USE OF RIGOROUS INDUSTRIALISATION PROCEDURES AND TECHNIQUES

  • MAXALTO

    MAXALTO DISTINGUISHED ITSELF FROM THE ONSET IN 1975 FOR EXCELLENT WOOD PROCESSING THAT WITNESSES THE COEXISTENCE OF SOPHISTICATED CRAFTSMANSHIP AND OF CUTTING EDGE INDUSTRIAL TECHNIQUES, ACHIEVING AN EXEMPLARY CONVERGENCE OF PRODUCTIVITY AND QUALITY. AFTER THE COMPANY WAS INITIALLY MANAGED BY AFRA AND TOBIA SCARPA, MAXALTO COLLECTIONS WERE COORDINATED BY ANTONIO CITTERIO FROM 1995, EMBRACING THE TYPOLOGICAL GUIDELINES AND STYLISTIC LANGUAGE OF FRENCH DESIGN BETWEEN THE TWO WARS, INTERPRETING THEM IN A CONTEMPORARY KEY. A COMPLETE RANGE OF FURNISHINGS FOR THE LIVING AREA AND BEDROOMS THAT ARE IMPRESSIVE FOR THE PRECIOUS MATERIALS AND SOPHISTICATED DETAILS, DESIGNED TO BE “CONTEMPORARY CLASSICS.”

  • B&B ITALIA OUTDOOR

    THE COMPANY'S DYNAMIC DRIVE AND CREATIVE FLAIR LEAD TO THE CREATION OF NEW COLLECTIONS FOR UNEXPLORED MARKET SEGMENTS. IN 2007 B&B ITALIA ACCEPTED THE CHALLENGE AND MADE ITS DEBUT IN THE SECTOR OF OUTDOOR FURNISHINGS WITH THE B&B ITALIA OUTDOOR COLLECTION. PARTNERSHIPS WITH PRESTIGIOUS DESIGNERS, SUCH AS P. URQUIOLA, J.M. MASSAUD AND A. CITTERIO, PRODUCE A STRONGLY DISTINCTIVE COLLECTION OF FURNISHINGS COMPARED TO TRADITIONAL STANDARDS, ONCE AGAIN CONFIRMING B&B ITALIA'S ROLE AS A HIGHLY INNOVATIVE AND CREATIVE COMPANY. CHAIRS, ARMCHAIRS, SOFAS, CHAISE LONGUES, TABLES AND ORIGINAL SPECTACULAR COMPLEMENTS FORM THE OFFER FOR OUTDOOR/INDOOR DESIGNER ITEMS.

  • B&B ITALIA PROJECT

    THE COLLECTION BASED ON MASS-PRODUCED ITEMS FOR ENHANCING PUBLIC SPACES (OFFICES, RESTAURANTS, HOTELS AND PUBLIC AREAS), DESIGNED AND ENGINEERED FOR THE CONTRACT MARKET, WAS LAUNCHED IN 2006 BY EXPLOITING THE EXPERIENCE ACQUIRED THROUGH PARTNERSHIPS WITH COMPANIES AND ARCHITECTURAL FIRMS. THESE FURNISHINGS ARE ENDOWED WITH REMARKABLE PERSONALITY. THEY ARE ERGONOMIC AND FUNCTIONAL, AND INTERPRET THE RATIONALE OF PUBLIC SPACE, BOTH IN TERMS OF DESIGN AND MATERIALS, WITH STRONG ADDED VALUE: DESPITE BEING BORN OF THE COOPERATION BETWEEN DESIGNERS WHO DIFFER IN TERMS OF STYLE AND CULTURE, THEY CAN BE MUTUALLY MATCHED TO CREATE HARMONIOUS COMBINATIONS STUDIED TO MIRROR B&B ITALIA'S MODERN TREND.

A brief
History

  • THE ORIGINS

    THE COMPANY WAS ESTABLISHED IN 1966 AS C&B (CASSINA & BUSNELLI) AS A RESULT OF THE INSIGHT AND ENTREPRENEURSHIP OF ITS CHARISMATIC FOUNDER, PIER AMBROGIO BUSNELLI. IT INSTANTLY DISTINGUISHED ITSELF FOR ITS CALLING TO PROMOTE INNOVATION, BOTH IN TERMS OF PRODUCT DESIGN AND OF MATERIALS AND TECHNOLOGIES, BECOMING THE ACKNOWLEDGED INTERNATIONAL LANDMARK FOR UPHOLSTERED MODELS. ESPECIALLY BRILLIANT TECHNOLOGICAL INSIGHT LED THE COMPANY TO IMPROVE THE SECTOR WITH AN INDUSTRIAL APPROACH TO THE PRODUCTION OF UPHOLSTERED MODELS. WITH THE CONTRIBUTION OF PRESTIGIOUS DESIGNERS, ITS INNOVATIVE DRIVE EXTENDED OVER THE YEARS TO OTHER DOMESTIC FURNISHING SECTORS, FINALLY REACHING CONTRACT AND OUTDOOR FURNISHINGS.

  • THE ‘60S

    THE COMPANY FEELS THE MODERNISATION AND INDUSTRIALISATION PROCESS OF THE COUNTRY AS A DRIVE TO INITIATE DARING EXPERIMENTATION. IT INSTANTLY ESTABLISHES A DIALOGUE BETWEEN ITALIAN DESIGN CULTURE AND INTERNATIONAL PROFESSIONALS. THE TECHNOLOGICAL REVOLUTION OF INJECTION MOULDING (COLD POLYURETHANE FOAM MOULDING) YIELDS THE ICONS OF DESIGN, SUCH AS UP, CORONADO, LOMBRICO AND AMANTA.

  • THE ‘70S

    AT A TIME OF ARTISTIC TURMOIL ENLIVENED BY NEW MODES OF EXPRESSION AND DARING TONES, THE COMPANY PLAYS A LEADING ROLE EVEN IN TERMS OF COMMUNICATION. OLIVIERO TOSCANI DESIGNS THE CAMPAIGN THAT LAUNCHES LE BAMBOLE (DESIGN MARIO BELLINI, COMPASSO D’ORO IN 1972): THE PROVOCATIVE IMAGES OF DONNA JORDAN WHO INSPIRED ANDY WARHOL HIGHLIGHT B&B ITALIA'S INNOVATIVE DRIVE. 1973 MARKS AN ESSENTIAL STAGE IN THE HISTORY OF THE COMPANY. PIER AMBROGIO BUSNELLI PURCHASES CASSINA'S SHARES AND CHANGES THE NAME OF THE COMPANY TO B&B ITALIA. MAXALTO IS ESTABLISHED IN 1975. RESEARCH LOOKS TO THE PAST BY REVISITING THE CLASSICAL FORMS AND IS INSPIRED BY THE ANCIENT MANUAL PROCESSING METHODS OF CABINETMAKING AND OF STRINGED MUSICAL INSTRUMENT MAKING PROCEDURES. A FURNISHING COLLECTION IS CREATED WITH THE CONTRIBUTION OF AFRA AND TOBIA SCARPA (ARTONA 1975, NEW ARMONY 1979) AND WOOD PLAYS THE PROTAGONIST.

  • THE ‘80S

    YEARS OF RADICAL CHANGES. THE FUTURE HOLDS THE DUAL CHALLENGE OF PROMISE AND THREAT. HENCE CULTURE DEVELOPS BY MERGING TRADITION AND EXPERIMENTATION. THE WARDROBE SISAMO DESIGNED BY STUDIO KAIROS WINS THE COMPASSO D’ORO AWARD IN 1984, RANKING B&B ITALIA AS A LEADER FOR INNOVATION EVEN IN THE SECTOR OF BEDROOM FURNISHINGS. B&B ITALIA CHANGES THE RULES OF THE GAME FOR UPHOLSTERED MODELS BY LAUNCHING A TYPOLOGICAL REVOLUTION WITH THE UNMISTAKABLE SITY (COMPASSO D’ORO, 1987), THE FIRST CONCEPT OF A “SEATING SYSTEM” ENHANCED BY MULTIPLE COMPOSITIONAL OPTIONS: “NO SITY IS THE SAME AS ANOTHER SITY.” MAXALTO CONTINUES ITS RESEARCH WITH AFRA AND TOBIA SCARPA, AND PRESENTS DAMASCO [1989] AND DOMINO. THE 1989 COMPASSO D’ORO AWARD MARKS A MILESTONE AS IT IS THE FIRST TIME THE PRIZE IS ASSIGNED TO A COMPANY. THE EVENT UNDERSCORES B&B ITALIA'S ROLE IN THE PROGRESS OF ITALIAN DESIGN.

  • THE ‘90S

    THE GENERAL SCENARIO SHOWS SIGNS OF RECOVERY. STRENGTHENED BY HIGH IMPACT PROJECTS, B&B ITALIA WINS INTERNATIONAL INTEREST WITH FURNISHINGS OF THE CALIBRE OF DOMUS (1989), HARRY (1995) AND CHARLES (1997), DESIGNED BY ANTONIO CITTERIO. THE FORMER TRANSFORMS AND REINVENTS THE WALLS OF HOMES WITH A BOOKCASE/SHELVED WALL SYSTEM DESIGNED WITH AN INNOVATIVE VERTICAL SLIDING MECHANISM FOR THE DOOR. HARRY AND CHARLES IINTRODUCE A NEW CONCEPT OF PURE AND LINEAR DESIGN THAT MERGES AESTHETIC AND FUNCTIONAL RIGOUR (INTRODUCTION OF THE CONCEPT OF A CHAISE LONGUE TERMINAL ELEMENT). A DECISIVE CHANGE FOR MAXALTO. ANTONIO CITTERIO INTERPRETS AN INNOVATIVE MAXALTO SPIRIT BY CREATING THE APTA COLLECTION [1996]. HE REVISITS THE EARLY 1900S AND LATER FINDS PRIVILEGED REFERENCES IN THE TYPES AND LANGUAGE OF FRENCH DESIGN BETWEEN THE TWO WARS. THE SENSE OF PROPORTIONS, THE TACTILE VALUE OF WOOD AND THE QUALITY OF DETAILS ARE THEMES THAT ARE RECURRENTLY DEVELOPED IN HIS MANY PROJECTS, WHICH ARE MUTUALLY COORDINATED, TO OFFER EXTENSIVE ANSWERS TO THE MANY FURNISHING REQUIREMENTS.

  • THE 2000S

    THE MILLENNIUM DAWNS ON EVENTS THAT FORM NEW POLITICAL AND CULTURAL BALANCES. IN THESE YEARS, WHICH ARE MARKED BY ONGOING CHANGES, ITALIAN DESIGN TREADS THE PATH OF INTERNATIONAL SUCCESS. AS IN OTHER HISTORICAL MOMENTS, B&B ITALIA ESTABLISHES PRIVILEGED RELATIONS WITH CERTAIN DESIGNERS, THUS DESIGNING PROJECTS OF REMARKABLE IMPORTANCE. P. URQUIOLA STARTS HER PARTNERSHIP WITH PROJECTS FAT-FAT AND LENS (2002-2003), CONSOLIDATES IT WITH TUFTY-TIME AND LAZY (2005)AND ACCOMPANIES B&B ITALIA WITH THE CANASTA (2007) COLLECTION ON ITS DEBUT ON THE SCENE OF OUTDOOR FURNISHINGS. RELATIONS WITH THE JAPANESE NAOTO FUKASAWA, AUTHOR OF ITEMS CHARGED WITH PERSONALITY, SUCH AS SHELFX(2006), LEAD TO THE CREATION OF AN ICONIC ITEM, GRANDE PAPILIO, IN 2009. THIS ARMCHAIR WITH ITS ORGANIC SCULPTED DESIGN PAVES THE WAY FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A WHOLE SEATING RANGE FOR THE HOME AND CONTRACT SECTORS. THEN THERE ARE MEETINGS, WHICH LEAD TO LASTING PARTNERSHIPS AND ELECTIVE AFFINITIES. WITH ANTONIO CITTERIO MAXALTO REVEALS ITS CALLING TO PURSUE A CONTINUOUS QUEST FOR QUALITY, AT THE CONVERGENCE OF SOPHISTICATED CRAFTSMANSHIP AND TECHNOLOGY, WITH THE UTMOST WISDOM IN TERMS OF STYLE AND DESIGN. THE NEW SIMPLICE COLLECTION [2000] AND AC COLLECTION [2003] ARE DESIGNED TO EXPRESS THE BRAND PHILOSOPHY WITH SHAPES AND SIGNS BECOMING MORE RIGOROUS, AND VOLUMES INCLINED TO BE MORE BASIC. LASTLY, A NEW RANGE OF ESSENCES AND FINISHES EFFECTIVELY INTERPRETS CONTEMPORARY AESTHETIC TRENDS. THE B&B ITALIA PROJECT COLLECTION IS FORMED IN 2006, WITNESSING B&B ITALIA LIFESTYLE APPLIED TO CONTRACT FRAMEWORKS (OFFICES, RESTAURANTS, LOUNGES, HOTELS,..). THE SAME YEAR B&B ITALIA TAKES OVER MOOOI, A DYNAMIC DUTCH COMPANY THAT MANUFACTURES FURNISHING AND LIGHTING ACCESSORIES UNDER THE BRILLIANT GUIDANCE OF THE ART DIRECTOR MARCEL WANDERS. THE COMPANIES, WHICH HAVE IN COMMON THE SAME PASSION FOR INNOVATION AND DESIGN, PERSEVERE IN THEIR COURSE CONSISTENTLY WITH THEIR DISTINCT AND COMPLEMENTARY PHILOSOPHIES AND STYLES. IN 2008 AN INNOVATIVE WALL SYSTEM LEADS TO THE CREATION OF FLAT.C BY A. CITTERIO. IT HIGHLIGHTS THE COMPANY'S SKILL TO FORMULATE NEW PROJECTS IN RESPONSE TO THE POWERFUL CHANGES CONVEYED BY TECHNOLOGY TO THE DOMESTIC UNIVERSE.

  • THE 2010S

    THE INTERNATIONAL ECONOMIC CRISIS FURTHER ACCELERATES B&B ITALIA'S COMMITMENT TO RESEARCH AND INNOVATION, KEY FACTORS THAT ARE AN INTRINSIC PART OF ITS DNA AND THE DRIVING FORCE OF ITS INTERNATIONAL GROWTH. THE DECADE OPENS WITH THE LAUNCH OF THE TWO BESTSELLERS, NAMELY BEND-SOFA BY PATRICIA URQUIOLA (2010) AND RAY BY ANTONIO CITTERIO (2010). LATER, IN 2011, AN UNUSUAL DESIGN IS CONCEIVED FOR HUSK, THE FAMILY OF SEATS DESIGNED BY PATRICIA URQUIOLA THAT CONFIRM B&B ITALIA'S FOCUS ON ECOLOGY AND SUSTAINABILITY. THIS DARING DESIGN FOR INTERIORS IS LATER TRANSLATED INTO AN ORIGINAL OUTDOOR VERSION CENTRED ON COMFORT AND COLOUR. MAXALTO DIRECTS ITS RESEARCH TOWARDS “NEW CLASSIC” ELEGANCE WITH THE TWO COLLECTIONS, ACRO COLLECTION (2010) AND LUX COLLECTION (2012), SKILFULLY DIRECTED BY A. CITTERIO. A RANGE OF NEW PRODUCTS FOLLOW IN SEQUENCE, CONFIRMING THE COMPANY'S UNWAVERING INNOVATIVE TREND, AS PROVEN BY PROJECT TOBI-ISHI (2012): TABLE WITH A POWERFUL SPECTACULAR PRESENCE DESIGNED BY BARBER & OSGERBY. ITS BASIC DESIGN AND COMPLEX PROJECT EXPRESS B&B ITALIA'S TYPICAL APPROACH TO EXPERIMENTATION, A REAL “DESIGN STATEMENT.”

    > AN INDUSTRY FOR DESIGN

Attention
to detail

MATERIALS

B&B ITALIA PRODUCTS ARE MANUFACTURED WITH TOP-QUALITY MATERIALS AND COMPONENTS THAT ARE CONTROLLED DURING EVERY PROCESSING PHASE. B&B ITALIA SEEKS AND APPLIES INNOVATIVE CUTTING EDGE TECHNOLOGIES TO ENSURE DURABILITY IN VIEW OF UPDATING A COLLECTION THAT INCREASES THE POSSIBILITIES OF CHOICE AND CUSTOMISATION.

THE MATERIALS CONCEIVED ARE AN INTEGRAL PART OF THE STUDY CARRIED OUT FOR EVERY PRODUCT THAT IS DESIGNED TO HIGHLIGHT BOTH ITS OWN IDENTITY AND CUSTOMER REQUIREMENTS. PROMOTING THE INTRINSIC QUALITY OF EVERY PRODUCT HAS ALWAYS ENSURED THE EXCELLENCE OF B&B ITALIA PRODUCTS.

  • PRODUCTION OF UPHOLSTERED MODELS

    THE USE OF COLD MOULDED POLYURETHANE FOAM, TECHNOLOGY PERFECTED BY B&B ITALIA IN 1966 BEFORE ANYONE ELSE IN THE WORLD, RADICALLY INNOVATED THE DESIGN CONCEPTS BEHIND UPHOLSTERED MODELS, AND BROUGHT WITH IT IMPORTANT IMPROVEMENTS IN TERMS OF THE QUALITY OF INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTION.

    STARTING BY MAKING USE OF A METAL LOAD-BEARING FRAME THAT GUARANTEES THE BEST RESULTS IN TERMS OF PRODUCT DURABILITY AND RESISTANCE, THESE FRAMES ARE INTEGRATED WITH ALL THOSE ELEMENTS (ELASTIC STRAPS, SPRINGS, REINFORCING, ETC.) THAT ENHANCE PRODUCT PERFORMANCE IN TERMS OF COMFORT AND FUNCTIONALITY. THE FRAME IS SUNK IN POLYURETHANE INJECTED INTO THE MOULD THAT REPRODUCES THE EXACT SHAPE OF THE PRODUCT.

    WITH ITS RANGE, B&B ITALIA COVERS ALL SEATING TYPES. THE COMMON DENOMINATOR IS POLYURETHANE THAT IS ADDED TO SOFTER AND MORE COMFORTABLE MATERIALS, SUCH AS STERILISED DOWN, POLYESTER FIBRE, OR A MIXTURE OF THE TWO. THE OPTIMAL LEVEL OF UPHOLSTERY IS DEFINED DURING A PROTOTYPING PHASE THAT IS CLOSELY FOLLOWED BY EACH DESIGNER.

  • THE ADVANTAGES OF B&B ITALIA FOAM

    THIS PROVIDES A WHOLE HOST OF ADVANTAGES COMPARED TO A STANDARD FRAME (TIMBER FRAME WITH SHAPED POLYURETHANE BLOCKS):

    • USING METAL FRAMES IMMERSED IN POLYURETHANE GUARANTEES SOLIDITY, RESISTANCE, DURABILITY AND FUNCTIONALITY;
    • THE INSERTION OF ELASTIC STRAPS AND SPRINGS ENSURES THE HIGHEST STANDARDS OF COMFORT;
    • FIBRE-GLASS REINFORCED OR PREHEATED ALUMINIUM MOULDS ALLOW UNRESTRAINED REPRODUCTION OF ORGANIC FORMS.
  • FABRICS

    B&B ITALIA'S TEXTILE COLLECTION IS THE RESULT OF IN-DEPTH RESEARCH INTO WEAVES, NATURAL AND SYNTHETIC YARNS WHICH, OFTEN PRODUCED ON AN EXCLUSIVE-RIGHTS BASIS, HARMONIOUSLY ADORN EACH ORIGINAL B&B PRODUCT TO MERGE INTO ANY HOME ENVIRONMENT.

    THE EXTENSIVE OFFER OF THE FABRIC AND LEATHER COLLECTION IS DESIGNED TO MEET THE DEMANDS OF AN INTERNATIONAL MARKET.

    FABRICS UNDERGO THE FOLLOWING SET OF QUALITY TESTS TO ASSESS THEIR QUALITY AND DURABILITY:

    • RESISTANCE TO ABRASION
    • FORMATION OF PILLING
    • LIGHT FASTNESS
    • RESISTANCE TO TRACTION
    • RESISTANCE TO LACERATION AND TO RUBBING
    TO FURTHER IMPROVE PERFORMANCE, SOME OF OUR FABRICS ARE SUBJECTED TO FINISHING TREATMENTS, SUCH AS, FOR INSTANCE:

    • STAIN PROOFING: CHEMICAL FINISH BY IMPREGNATING THE FABRIC WITH MACROMOLECULAR SUBSTANCES THAT PREVENT LIQUIDS FROM BEING ABSORBED BY FABRIC FIBRE.
    • SANFOR:FINISH AIMED AT STABILIZING A FABRIC. APPLIED USUALLY TO FABRICS MEANT TO BE WASHED IN WATER.
    • BUFFING: MECHANICAL FINISH AIMED AT OBTAINING A "PEACH SKIN" EFFECT. THE FABRIC SURFACE IS EXPOSED TO ABRASION TO ACHIEVE A SOFTER FEEL.
    • FIREPROOFING: CHEMICAL FINISH, BY IMPREGNATION OR BACK-COATING OF THE FABRIC WITH PRODUCTS THAT ENHANCE ITS FIRE RESISTANCE.
  • LEATHER

    THE KINDS OF LEATHER SELECTED BY B&B ITALIA ARE OBTAINED FROM CALVES AND BULLS BRED IN THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITY. THIS GUARANTEES PROPER CARE FOR AND ATTENTION TO THE QUALITY OF LIFE OF THE ANIMAL. THE BEAUTY AND QUALITY OF A LEATHER KIND ACTUALLY DEPEND ON THE ORIGIN AND THE WAY THE ANIMAL WAS BRED. B&B ITALIA SELECTS HIDES FROM YOUNG ANIMALS (BULLOCKS), BECAUSE THEY ARE MORE INTACT AND COMPACT.
    TO PRESERVE THE EXCELLENCE OF RAW MATERIALS, ALL OF THE TREATMENTS AND FINISHES PRESERVE THE LEATHER’S NATURAL FEATURES, INCLUDING CERTAIN ANOMALIES DUE TO THE ANIMALS’ NATURAL LIVING CONDITIONS, SUCH AS SCARS, INSECT STINGS, CORNS, WRINKLES, SHADING, DIFFERENCES IN GRAIN, ETC. THESE FEATURES ARE THE CONCRETE PROOF OF THE PRODUCT’S NATURAL QUALITY AND ARE, THEREFORE, TO BE CONSIDERED AS POSITIVE FEATURES AND ESSENTIAL ELEMENTS OF LEATHER. IT IS B&B ITALIA'S DUTY TO ENSURE THE UTMOST CARE DURING THE LEATHER CUTTING PHASE TO AVOID PLACING SAID "MARKS" ON THE MOST VISIBLE PARTS OF THE PRODUCT.
  • ORIGIN OF WOOD

    OAK USED IN B&B PRODUCTIONS IS SOLELY RIBBED AMERICAN RIFT WHITE OAK. THIS MATERIAL TYPICALLY PRESENTS A STRAIGHT BUT IRREGULAR GRAIN, SOMETIMES WITH A COARSE TEXTURE.

    CANALETTO WALNUTHAS WARM SHADES AND AN EVIDENT GRAIN THAT ENDOWS THIS WOOD WITH A VARIED CHROMATIC EFFECT THAT RECALLS ITS TRADITIONAL USE FOR FURNITURE PRODUCTION.

    ROSEWOODIS NATIVE OF LATIN AMERICA AND COMES FROM CULTIVATIONS THAT ARE CONTROLLED AND MANAGED BY LOCAL GOVERNMENTS. THE GRAIN AND CHROMATIC REFLECTIONS OF THIS NOBLE WOOD MAKE IT UNIQUE AND INIMITABLE IN THE FRAMEWORK OF WOOD TYPES.

    TEAK, WHICH IS SOLELY USED FOR THE OUTDOOR COLLECTION, IS ONE OF THE MOST PRECIOUS TROPICAL WOODS FOR ITS EXCEPTIONAL RESISTANCE TO ATMOSPHERIC AGENTS. THIS SPECIAL FEATURE IS BASED ON THE FACT THAT IT CONTAINS A NATURAL OILY RESIN THAT MAKES IT HIGHLY RESISTANT, THUS ENHANCING THE DEGREE OF WATERPROOFING. (EVEN PREVENTING TERMITE ATTACKS)

  • WOOD FINISHES

    TO HIGHLIGHT THE DISTINCTIVE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE WOOD AND ITS NATURAL QUALITY, B&B ITALIA SUBJECTS WOOD TO AN OPEN PORE FINISH. FOR FINISHES IN LIGHT OAK, BLACK OAK, OR SMOKY OAK, BEFORE APPLYING A CLEAR FINISH, THE SURFACE IS SUBJECTED TO A “BRUSHING” PROCESS THAT HIGHLIGHTS THE GRAIN IN THE WOOD. FOR GREY COLOURED OAK, THE COLOUR APPLIED IS DESIGNED NOT TO ALTER THE ORIGINAL CHARACTERISTICS OF THE WOOD ITSELF.

  • LACQUER

    LACQUERS USED BY THE B&B ITALIA COLLECTION ARE SELECTED THROUGH A CAREFUL RESEARCHING PROCESS TO ENSURE A WIDE RANGE AND EXCELLENT QUALITY. THE PAINTS ARE DESIGNED TO ACHIEVE THE BEST RESULTS IN TERMS OF RESISTANCE TO AGEING, SCRATCHING, ABRASION, AND APPLICATION ON THE VARIOUS TYPES OF WOOD USED BY B&B ITALIA.
    SATIN AND GLOSSY FINISHES OFFER THE OPTION OF HIGHLIGHTING THE FEATURES OF THE PIECE OF FURNITURE ENHANCING ITS SHINY PARTS.
    “TITANIUM” FINISH, A VERY BRIGHT PAINT, IS THE RESULT OF INTERNAL RESEARCH AND OF A COMPLEX PAINTING CYCLE, AND ANTICIPATES THE FUTURE OF CHROME EFFECT PAINTS ON A WOOD OR METAL BASE.
    ALL PAINTS USED BY B&B ITALIA ARE WATER-BASED, DESIGNED AND SPECIALLY TESTED IN COMPLIANCE WITH ENVIRONMENT-FRIENDLY REGULATIONS IN FORCE CONCERNING EMISSIONS.

  • METALS

    STEEL AND ALUMINIUM OFFER SEVERAL SOLUTIONS FOR FINISHES ACCORDING TO THE PRODUCTS AND APPLICATIONS, WHICH RANGE FROM PAINTING TO CHROMING OR SIMPLE BRUSHING.

    BESIDES ORIGINAL AESTHETIC SOLUTIONS, THE VARNISHED FINISHES PROVIDE EXCELLENT RESULTS AS REGARDS SURFACE HARDNESS, RESISTANCE TO AGEING, SCRATCH, ABRASION AND FADING. EXPERIENCE AND RESEARCH HAVE LED TO THE SELECTION OF COMPONENTS AND PAINTING CYCLES THAT OFFER THE HIGHEST GUARANTEE FOR THE PRODUCT.

    GALVANIC FINISHES (CHROME) HAVE STRONG RESISTANCE, AN EXCELLENT AESTHETIC IMPACT AND DIRT REPELLENT FEATURES. BESIDES AESTHETIC QUALITY, B&B ITALIA GUARANTEES THE PURCHASER A RESISTANT AND DURABLE PRODUCT; HENCE THE ADOPTION OF A VERY RIGOROUS PRODUCTION CYCLE THAT IS CONTROLLED DURING ALL PROCESSING PHASES. FOR ITS GALVANIC FINISHES B&B ITALIA COOPERATES WITH LEADING COMPANIES IN THIS SECTOR THAT COMPLY WITH THE ENVIRONMENTAL REGULATIONS IN FORCE.

  • MARBLE

    B&B ITALIA PROPOSES SEVERAL TYPES OF MARBLE. TWO DIFFERENT FINISHES CAN BE CHOSEN, BASED ON THEIR USE: A MATT FINISH THAT ENHANCES THE POROSITY OF THE MATERIAL AND WHICH UNDERGOES ONLY A "STAIN PROOFING" TREATMENT THAT SLOWS DOWN THE ABSORPTION OF LIQUIDS.

    TO BETTER PROTECT THE SURFACE, A PROTECTIVE TREATMENT IS APPLIED WITH POLYESTER-BASED PAINT TO HIGHLIGHT THE BEAUTY OF EVIDENT VEINS AND CHROMATIC REFLECTIONS OF MARBLE WHILE ENSURING WATERPROOFING AGAINST ALL LIQUIDS.

    THE MARBLE MOST USED AND APPRECIATED INCLUDES EMPERADOR, BLACK MARQUINIA, PORTORO, WHITE CARRARA AND WHITE CALACATTA.

  • THERMOPLASTIC MATERIAL

    THERMOPLASTIC MATERIALS OFFER SEVERAL ADVANTAGES, INCLUDING LIGHTNESS, RESISTANCE AND EASY CLEANING.

  • CRISTALPLANT

    CRISTALPLANT® IS A HIGHLY TECHNOLOGICAL AND INNOVATIVE MATERIAL THAT BELONGS TO THE “SOLID SURFACE” CATEGORY. IT IS MADE OF A HIGH PERCENTAGE OF ALUMINIUM HYDRATES AND ACRYLIC RESIN THAT IS POURED INTO MOULDS.

    A HIGH QUALITY PRODUCT, IT IS IMPACT RESISTANT AND ALSO WITHSTANDS UV RAYS, TEMPERATURE FLUCTUATIONS AND WEAR. IT IS THE OPTIMAL CHOICE FOR CONTEMPORARY LIVING NEEDS, BOTH FOR ITS AESTHETIC QUALITIES AND ITS FUNCTIONAL ASPECTS: CRISTALPLANT® PRODUCTS HAVE A PLEASANT VELVET FEEL CREATED BY THE “SOFT TOUCH” EFFECT OF THE SURFACE.

    IT IS A COMPACT HYGIENIC MATERIAL THAT HAS BEEN CREATED FOR EASY CLEANING AND REGENERATION FROM STAINS AND MINOR DAMAGE. CRISTALPLANT® IS EXCLUSIVELY MANUFACTURED IN ITALY, AND IT IS 100% RECYCLABLE.
  • CERTIFICATIONS

    ON 18.12.1997, B&B ITALIA OBTAINED ITS FIRST CORPORATE QUALITY SYSTEM CERTIFICATION FOR THE LINES OF UPHOLSTERED FURNITURE AND FURNISHING ACCESSORIES WITH CERTIFICATE N° 118 I.C.I.L.A./C.I.S.Q.

    B&B ITALIA THEN DECIDED TO ADAPT CORPORATE ORGANISATION TO OBTAIN THE QUALITY CERTIFICATION FOR ALL ITS PROPRIETARY FACTORIES, IN COMPLIANCE WITH STANDARD UNI EN I.S.O. 9001:2008..
    HENCE, THE IMPLEMENTATION OF A CORPORATE QUALITY SYSTEM..
    THE PRIORITY AND ESSENTIAL OBJECTIVE OF SAID QUALITY SYSTEM IS TO APPLY, UPDATE AND CONSOLIDATE THE OVERALL RULES ESTABLISHED BY THE COMPANY TO PROTECT CUSTOMER SATISFACTION.

Things that stand
the test of time

  • PRODUCTS THAT ARE VALUABLE IN TIME.

    B&B ITALIA’S SUCCESS IS BASED ON A UNIQUE BLENDING OF CREATIVITY, INNOVATION AND INDUSTRIAL KNOW-HOW THAT LEADS TO THE CREATION OF PRODUCTS THAT “ARE VALUABLE IN TIME." “THINGS THAT STAND THE TEST OF TIME” HAS BEEN THE COMPANY’S ADVERTISING PAYOFF FOR ALMOST FORTY YEARS, FULLY MIRRORING THE CORPORATE PHILOSOPHY TODAY AS AT THE TIME. IMPECCABLE PRODUCTS IN TERMS OF FUNCTION, MATERIALS, CONSTRUCTION QUALITY AND DESIGN THAT LAST IN TIME.

    LIKE THE PRODUCTION PROCESS, ALSO RECYCLING AND DISPOSAL ARE INDUSTRIAL ACTIONS THAT REQUIRE ENERGY AND PRODUCE CO2 EMISSIONS. HENCE THE CONCEPT OF ECO-SUSTAINABILITY APPLIED TO PRODUCTS IS RELATIVE WHEN THEIR USE AND DURABILITY ARE LIMITED IN TIME AND REQUIRE RECYCLING AND DISPOSAL OPERATIONS IN BARELY A FEW YEARS.

    EVER KEEN ON QUALITY, B&B ITALIA PRODUCES HIGH QUALITY PRODUCTS WITH EXCEPTIONAL DURABILITY, THUS CONTRIBUTING TOWARDS CONSIDERABLE SAVINGS. CUTTING DOWN INDUSTRIAL RECYCLING AND DISPOSAL ACTIVITIES ACTUALLY SAVES MATERIALS, ENERGY AND EMISSIONS.

  • QUALITY THAT STANDS THE TEST OF TIME

    ALL B&B ITALIA UPHOLSTERED MODELS HAVE A 10 YEAR GUARANTEE FOR THE FRAME. THE PRODUCTION TECHNOLOGY OF “POLYURETHANE FOAM MOULDINGS,” WHICH WAS INTRODUCED INTO THE SECTOR BY THE FOUNDER OF THE COMPANY IN 1966, REVOLUTIONISED INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTION OF UPHOLSTERED MODELS, GUARANTEEING HIGHER AND CONSTANT QUALITY STANDARDS.
    PRECISELY, THE PROCESS ENTAILS ”SINKING” A STEEL FRAME IN THE MOULD, WHICH IS THEN FILLED WITH BAYFITRALL POLYURETHANE BY COLD INJECTION..
    THIS INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTION TECHNIQUE, ALONG WITH THE QUALITY OF MATERIALS USED, GUARANTEES B&B ITALIA CLIENTS A PRODUCT THAT IS FAR MORE DURABLE THAN THE BEST STANDARDS IN THE SECTOR.

  • DESIGN AND FUNCTIONALITY THAT STAND THE TEST OF TIME

    COOPERATION WITH LEADING INTERNATIONAL DESIGNERS IS THE SECOND SUCCESS FACTOR THAT ENABLES B&B ITALIA TO PROVIDE A LASTING PRODUCT NOT ONLY IN QUALITATIVE AND FUNCTIONAL TERMS, BUT ALSO FROM AN AESTHETIC STANDPOINT THROUGH “TIMELESS” DESIGN THAT REACHES BEYOND TIME AND TRENDS.

    B&B ITALIA CONSTANTLY UNDERTAKES TO ADOPT AN "ECOLOGICALLY FRIENDLY" CONDUCT BY ADAPTING ITS FACTORIES AND, WHEN POSSIBLE, IMPROVING ITS EFFORTS TO PRODUCE SUSTAINABLE MATERIALS AND PROCESSES.

    THE COMPANY IS SENSITIVE TO THEMES OF ECO-SUSTAINABILITY NOT ONLY FROM A REGULATORY STANDPOINT, BUT PRINCIPALLY AS AN AVENUE OF RESEARCH. B&B ITALIA’S R&D CENTRE TENACIOUSLY CHANNELS ITS EFFORTS AT DISCOVERING INNOVATIVE MATERIALS AND DEVELOPING PRODUCTION PROCESSES DESIGNED TO GUARANTEE AN INDUSTRIAL APPROACH THAT INCREASINGLY RESPECTS ENVIRONMENTAL BALANCE.
