B&B Italia launch into 2016 with new and updated collections for the living and outdoor areas at the Cologne Design Fair.
Richard, by Antonio Citterio, is a new seating system which distinguishes itself by its balanced contemporary design, with references to classical atmospheres.
The Mirto indoor collection has been expanded with a range of tables and ottomans, as well as the expansion of the Mirto outdoor collection with the updated Mirto chaise longue.
The Gio collection, also by Antonio Citterio, is a full family of outdoor products designed specifically for living in open air. The range is made up of sofas, end units, a chaise longue, sunbeds, armchairs, chairs, tables and complements, which have all been developed using a solid teak structure that is finished in an antique grey that gives the product a lived in and silver-grey reflective quality.
