Sofas

Description

A visual dialogue between structure and shapes, the Naviglio seating collection is made up of curved, linear and terminal elements, chaise longues, and ottomans. Synthesis is the project’s essence and starts from its name. The seating base is a riverbed that defines the space to accommodate a backrest/armrest which is as sinuous as a watercourse. As a piece of a puzzle, each shape is ergonomically designed into a single cohesive unit. The backrest section and the seating reveal a delicate balance between polygons and curved shapes, where geometry becomes softness and rigour blends with comfort. The different elements’ upholstery is made of flexible polyurethane, to welcome and correctly support the body. The choice was dictated by the object’s nature – a sofa without seat cushions. The covers are available in a wide range of fabrics and shades. The backrest back features a continuous decorative insert, providing a linear element that further emphasizes the shape’s continuity.

Concept

“We aimed to create a collection that was a visual dialogue between structure and form; how shapes interact and may be brought together to create their own unique whole. We began the design process by taking an assortment of simple organic forms and playing with their interactions. Many resembled a relationship like that of oil and water, while others delivered the sweetness of strawberries and cream.”  

Glenn Pushelberg

 

“It was as though we were completing a puzzle with B&B Italia; gathering the pieces, assorting the colours and shapes and fitting them together through trial and error until it was complete. We are passionately proud of Naviglio, our first collection with B&B Italia, and see our first partnership as homage to our shared commitment to craft and creating for the world we want to live in.”

Yabu Pushelberg

George Yabu and Glenn Pushel­berg found­ed their stu­dio in 1980 with an empha­sis on inte­ri­or design and have since expand­ed the firm into a mul­ti­dis­ci­pli­nary prac­tice.

With offices in New York and Toron­to and a team of more than a hun­dred cre­atives and pro­fes­sion­als, they design places and prod­ucts: buildings, inte­ri­ors, land­scapes, light­ing, fur­ni­ture, objects, and graph­ics, with a focus that goes well beyond what things look like, to how they make peo­ple feel. The firm and founders have earned many hon­ours, includ­ing being appoint­ed Offi­cers of the Order of Cana­da, induct­ed into the Inte­ri­or Design Hall of Fame, and named among the world’s most influ­en­tial design stu­dios by prestigious international magazines.

The studio collaborates with lead­ing hotel and resort brands, devel­op­ers, retail­ers, restau­ra­teurs, man­u­fac­turers, entre­pre­neurs and cre­ative indi­vid­u­als look­ing to stand apart from the crowd.
