In 2016 the Italian furniture house B&B Italia turns 50 which in many ways seems young.

Certainly the group's passion for innovation and design has been consistent from the start when Piero Busnelli launched the brand and changed the direction of Italian design forever.

That approach has developed over the five decades, blending the traditional craftsmanship of regional Italy with the latest technologies and techniques.

It's a fascinating story and more space will begin a series of profiles and interviews in early 2016 – for now here is a short of the film B&B Italia commissioned to tell their story.
