Salone del Mobile 2016 is knocking at city doors! One of the best Italian design brands will be as always is, at Milan Furniture Fair 2016. B&B Italia will introduce a new collection designed by Antonio Citterio.
Gio, designed by Antonio Citterio, is the new series with a contemporary classic accent dedicated to living in the open air. A complete range of sofas, end units, chaise longue, sunbeds, armchairs, chairs, tables and complements which have been developed from solid teak structures with a special antique grey finish, which gives the wood a particular lived-in aspect and silver-grey reflective quality. The various types of sofas, end units and chaise longue can be assembled to form linear, corner and peninsula seating.
They all have a basic structure of wooden slats where backrests and armrests, characterised by and interlacing of ecru ribbons, can be easily inserted. This particular type of structure allows for easily disassemble the various components, so to reduce the space needed to store the products in winter. The seats are equipped with seat and back cushions which makes the Gio series particularly cosy and comfortable, and offer exclusive colour combinations.
The new Gio collection is a sign of continuity in the company’s DNA for innovation, while B&B Italia Outdoor extends its wide range of products. Free time, comfort and aesthetics come together in a series of projects which feature carefully selected materials and cutting-edge technologies. The collection achieves a high level of quality, with products that have been designed and tested for life outdoors.
