All B&B Italia’ first new products for 2017 are by Antonio Citterio and they are all intended for outdoor use. Starting with the Ray seating system, which has been enhanced with two new families: Ray Outdoor Natural and Ray Outdoor Fabric; the first characterized by a textilene rope weave and the second by a polypropylene fiber ribbon weave. Combined with a lightweight extruded aluminium structure, they consist of sofas, modular elements and armchairs (the sun bed with wheels is also in Fabric). Erica is a new series that consists of an armchair, sofa and chair, with painted aluminium structures combined with polypropylene fiber ribbon weaves with a very tough inner structure. There is also the Ginestra series of dining tables, which are distinguished by their large size, structural details and the designs of the natural teak tops with porcelain tile central inserts, coupled with a natural teak chair with a polypropylene ribbon weave. Finally, the Mirto sun bed series, which received an honorable mention at the last Compasso d’Oro, is enhanced by a solution with sunshades.
For the new outdoor products, the company has developed a collection of coverings that coordinate with the colors of the weaves and the structures.
