B&B Italia Furniture: A Modern Tradition
Since it’s inception B&B Italia designer furniture has been at the forefront of modern furniture design with a quality of craftsmanship rivaling none. B&B Italia indoor and outdoor furniture blends ultra-clean lines and organic shapes, carefully sculpted with an aesthetic that is at once cutting edge and timeless. Unsurpassed in durability and resilience, the company’s unique construction methods make them built to last over time.
Founder Piero Ambrogio Busnelli had a keen eye for design and during its early years B&B's factory building was designed by two rising talents Renzo Piano and Richard Rogers who would later become world-famous Pritzker-winning architects. The factory building spoke to Busnelli’s goals of taking Italy’s tradition of quality design in a modern, industrial direction. The clean interior and the physical lightness of the building are traits easily recognized today in the company’s designs this B&B sofa is a great example
Busnelli is known for recognizing talent and forging partnerships with designers and architects. His ability to anticipate trends and offer cutting edge modern designs helped form his reputation as a world leader in his field along with his creative and innovative industrial manufacturing techniques that rival the quality of the designs.
