Founded in 1966 by Piero Ambrogio Busnelli, B&B Italia is a leading Italian company that specializes in designer furniture for both the residential and contract markets. B&B Italia products are unique creations that merge research, creativity, and technology. The brand has been honored with numerous awards, including four Compasso D‘Oro prizes, the most prestigious honor in the field of industrial design.
The company has distinguished itself for its innovative approach to manufacturing. Based in the Novedrate region, north of Milan, the firm’s prestigious headquarters were designed by Renzo Piano and Richard Rogers in 1972. The manufacturer was one of the first to perfect the use of cold-molded polyurethane foam in its upholstered products, a solution that significantly improved their quality and performance.
The B&B Italia furniture collection reflects contemporary culture and constantly responds to the ever-changing lifestyles, habits, and requirements of the modern design industry. With contributions from exceptional design talents, including Mario Bellini, Zaha Hadid, Piero Lissoni, Patricia Urquiola, Antonio Citterio, Ettore Sottsass, and Gaetano Pesce, the brand is globally renowned for the quality and timeless nature of its products. That excellence translates to all segments of the company, including service. B&B Italia’s contract division offers complete turnkey solutions for interior projects, ranging from engineering and development to installation. As a result, the brand is a go-to resource for hospitality, commercial, retail, and institutional designers.

With a presence in more than 80 countries and more than 800 flagship stores bearing its name, B&B Italia is widely known to be one of the top furniture manufacturers in the world.
