The centerpiece of modern lifestyle, the Charles
has become a hallmark in the world of design.
The light feeling especially conveyed by the
essential design of the “inverted “L”- shaped
feet, along with a single seat-cushion and a
series of free cushions placed on the backrest
is the distinctive feature of a sofa that has
met with boundless success. The airy shape
and simple profile make it, almost by contrast,
extremely rich and innovative from a spatial
standpoint, a system that encourages the
creation of ever new compositions. The Charles
includes an extensive family of elements that
can meet every furnishing requirement, even
the most personal demand for comfort.

The concept behind the Charles is to have a
high seat modular sofa with all the elements
available in different forms, types and sizes.
Linear and corner compositions have
been developed with these elements in mind,
especially for the chaise lounge end units.
The Charles’ peninsula-style compositions
look especially beautiful as the centerpiece of
a room. The single-seat cushion, the free
pillows placed on the backrest and the pure
lines of the die-cast aluminium feet give the
Charles sofa a decidedly modern feel.

Patricia Urquiola has designed a surprising
series of seats that transform the traditional
concept of the sofa. She has named the
product Bend-Sofa due to its curvaceous
albeit monolithic form. It gives the appearance
of being manually moulded from a supple
material as if by a sculptor. In practice, it’s
made from a study of 3-D models and digital
research. Bend-Sofa effectively conveys the
idea of motion by alternating full and empty
spaces. Contrasting stitchings add to the
intrinsic design on the surface. The backrest
is irregularly shaped, but without compromising
comfort. Curved modules - assembled
starting with the seats, ottoman and corner
elements - form a sofa that breaks out of the
usual visual schemes and differentiates from
other contemporary pieces on account of its
calculated eccentricity.

The name recalls the butterfly because, as
explained by the author, “the backrest designs
the two wings with the head resting between
them and protected by them.”
It seems carved out of a block of material
from which its inverted truncated cone shape
is derived. With a powerful personality, its
swivel system facilitates contact with the
surrounding environment. The chair includes
an ottoman footrest for an absolutely relaxing
seating experience.

DESIGNED BY ANTONIO CITTERIO
The J.J. family presents armchairs with a
different look and a wide variety of materials:
with a steel-rod structure supporting a
wooden frame, they convey a certain degree
of lightness. Entirely made of thermo-treated
ash wood, they hint at traditional aesthetics.
The armchair fitted with a sleigh, the
expression of the traditional rocking chair,
becomes even more glamorous when it is
attired in long-haired Mongolian lamb fur.

Designed for those who love comfort and
modernity, intended to be an evergreen,
the Michel seating system mirrors the design
philosophy of its designer who shows a
preference for simple shapes - pure and
elegant in their linear form without any
additional decoration to underscore the
concept of function. The many elements can
create both formal and social configurations
in an extensive range of sizes.

If the wings of Grande Papilio protect the head
of the user, those of Piccola Papilio support
the back, creating a seat that, despite the
small size, precisely responds to the demand
for comfort. The truncated cone shape is
unchanged, and there is still a zip on the rear
of the backrest. It can fit into small rooms
or even be arranged in a row. It also has a
swivel system.

A successful design strategy that achieves a
balance of functional and aesthetic features,
and entrusts the details to the right role: the
Ray seating system is designed for a long life.
Modular, available in two depths, with an
extensive compositional range that includes
linear and corner elements, a chaise longue
and ottoman. It stands out due to the tailoring
detail of the blanket stitch that runs along
the profiles of the cover, both in tonal and in
contrasting hues.

The Up Series was designed in 1969 and has remained an iconic design piece within the B&B Italia
collection for more than 40 years. The Up5 chair, known for its striking representation of feminine
strength and struggle, continues to be meaningful and relevant. It reflects a world sensibility with
symbolism, irony, beauty and is truly the epitome of a timeless design.

The beautifully balanced construction of
Solo’14 was obtained through the reduction
of all superfluous elements and the careful
proportion of its components. The die-cast
aluminum structure supports a deep seat,
with a joint back which also acts as armrest,
on which cushions sit freely. The raw edge
faux leather profile highlights the silhouette
of the arm rest and seat, giving it a unique,
sartorial finish.

The Tulip is a 360-degree swivel armchair
with remarkably flexible use, highlighted
by a well-balanced proportion between its
thickness and the intersections of straight
lines and curves. The polished brushed
aluminium supporting disc reflects part of
the frame, thus emphasising the chair’s
roundness. Two cuts carved into the backrest
and a soft seat cushion make the chair cosy
and comfortable.

PAPILIO

The design allows both an erect and a more
relaxed position by resting on one of the wings
of the armrest. The formal balance results
from the constant thickness of the body and
by the profile of the seat, which is sinuous
at the top and ends in the light steel frame.
Its removable covers have metal zips on the
back, which becomes a decorative motif.

A sheet of leather “pinched” in two places at
the base: here is where the movement and
natural inclination of the headboard originate.
It has a comfortable and protective shape
with remarkable formal simplicity and very
thin sides marked by a lengthwise seam.
The bed surface, which can be adjusted to
two heights, has an effect of suspension and
floating of the super-comfortable mattress.
It is available in American King and Queen
