B&B Italia is a company dedicated to sustainably improving the quality of homes, offices and public spaces through the power of design. B&B Italia’s success is based upon a unique blend of creativity, innovation and industrial know-how that leads to the creation of products that “stand the test of time ." has been the company’s advertising slogan for almost forty years, fully reflecting the corporate philosophy today as in the past . Impeccable products in terms of function, materials, construction quality and design that last over time. Like the production process, also recycling and disposal are industrial procedures 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 and products have to be recycled and disposed of after a very short time . Always focused on quality, B&B Italia produces high quality products with exceptional durability, thus contributing towards considerable savings. Cutting down on industrial recycling and the disposal of products actually saves materials, energy and emissions.
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" approach by adapting its factories and, when possible, improving its efforts to produce sustainable materials and processes. The company is sensitive to requirements of eco-sustainability not only from a regulatory standpoint, but also as a fundamental principle in its research activities. CR&S B&B Italia’s Research and Development Centre tenaciously channels its efforts into discovering innovative materials and developing production processes designed to guarantee an industrial approach that increasingly respects the environment.
