for B&B Italia Outdoor
The Bay sofas for B&B Italia Outdoor, designed by Doshi Levien, offer a luxurious and contemporary seating solution for outdoor spaces. The sculptural braided volumes of the sofa are elegantly combined with rock-like seats and soft cushions, creating a unique and comfortable seating experience. The double braiding design makes air pockets that add a sense of lightness and transparency to the collection, while the soft cushions provide the ultimate comfort. The Bay sofa is available in two sizes, sofa or daybed/chaise lounge, allowing you to choose the perfect seating solution for your outdoor living area. The collection also includes the Bay lounge chair, allowing you to create a complete outdoor lounge set that exudes elegance and refinement.
