Relaunching BBB, historical pieces and new arrivals

Written by Redazione |

03 July 2017

In 2016, the BBB mark was taken into the Italexpo Group, a multi-year player of the office seat market. As a result, the production range was enriched with wooden seats, tables, libraries and soft furniture manufactured and commercialized under the BBB brand. 

In addition, the BBB catalogue features some chairs that have become part of design history. They were created by such designers of international prestige as Gio Ponti, Jasper Morrison, Harri Koskinen, Enrico Davide Bona, Marco Piva. Now, the historical pieces that are already on the catalogue (940, 969, Quattrogambe, MUU, Paso Doble and many others) are complemented with original chairs and libraries made of innovative material for outdoor furniture marrying new technologies with design. 

What stands out among the original products is the new Flèche chair by E. D. Bona and E. Nobile. This is a wooden foldable one-hinge chair distinguished by its dynamic profile resembling the arrow, which its name derives from. 

As for the outdoor collection, an agreement was signed with Skaema for the use of Oryzawood, a new material patented in Germany, completely natural, environmentally sustainable and recyclable, deriving from rice chaff, looking and feeling like wood but not having any duration or maintenance limits. 

Therefore, there will be several BBB collection models reinterpreted with Oryzawood, including the 940 chair by Gio Ponti, Venezia designed by Paolo Favaretto, the Plan series armchairs and tables designed by Marco Piva and the collection of chairs and tables designed by Harri Koskinen. 

In the end, BBB confirms its historical calling to innovation enriching its products with the most advanced functionalities offered by modern technology: it is planned to equip BBB furniture items with the Internet of Things device making them smart, integrated and connected, enabling user recognition, dialogues with computer networks, devices, hubs and at the same time collecting data to improve the person's well-being.
