B&B Italia

Italy (1966)

Founded in 1966 by Piero Ambro­gio Busnelli, B&B Italia is a leading Italian company that special­izes in modern 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.
