Naoto Fukasawa setzt seine Experimente mit Sitzmöbeln in Form eines umgedrehten Kegelstumpfes fort und erfüllt mit diesem Entwurf den Wunsch von B&B Italia nach einem Armlehnstuhl. Hierzu entwickelte er zwei ergonomische Formen, zum einen für einen Sessel mit hoher Rückenlehne und Kopfstütze, zum anderen für einen Plaudersessel mit niedriger Rückenlehne. Beide sind mit einem drehbaren Untergestell und einem sichtbaren Reißverschluss auf der Rückseite ausgestattet, der ebenso wie bei der berühmten Papilio-Serie die Entfernung des Stoff- oder Lederbezugs ermöglicht. Die beiden Sitzmöbel werden durch einen Hocker ergänzt, auf dessen Oberseite ein Tablett abgestellt werden kann, so dass er auch als Beistelltisch nutzbar ist.


 “When I was working on Papillo family, I realized that working on a mass of polyurethane foam is the iconic strength of B&B Italia.  Hence, the idea for this design is to sculpt a form out of this material as if I was making a sculpture out of Carrara marble blocks.  It is true to me that B&B Italia is a brand that creates sculpture in polyurethane.

The name Harbor comes from a feeling of having a place to come back to and I also wanted this seat to have a feeling of wrapping around our body.
