Description

B&B Italia revisits the past with the new Softcage outdoor collection, which is inspired by a 1975 project by Mario Bellini, whose avant-garde vision opened new horizons in the use of rattan as a valuable material for furnishings, combining bold shapes and a timeless elegance. Today this iconic concept is reinterpreted through B&B Italia's lens of innovation to give life to a collection that preserves the magic of hand-crafted rattan and blends it with contemporary aesthetics. This new interpretation offers an unparalleled experience of comfort and style for outdoor spaces thanks to a highly sophisticated cage structure composed of 45 mm sections and 18 mm rods. The load-bearing structure boasts gentler and more ergonomic shapes thanks to the base under the seat and the backrest, both inclined and suspended. The new collection consists of a sofa in two sizes and an armchair, all with a rattan structure offered in different colours. The range of colours and fabrics allows you to personalize outdoor spaces with a touch of elegance and functionality.

He received the Golden Compass Award eight times and 25 of his works are in the permanent design collection of the New York MoMA, which dedicated to him a personal retrospective in 1987. He was editor of Domus magazine (1985-1991) and has designed countless art, design and architecture exhibitions over the years, both in Italy and abroad.

In 2015 the Milan Triennale awarded him the Gold Medal for his career in architecture and in 2017 dedicated him a retrospective exhibition which was then the subject of a world tour.
