or Call to Order

The Bull table for B&B Italia, created by Naoto Fuka­sawa, boasts legs with a gener­ous, rounded section that are slightly angled to create a sturdy and grounded appear­ance. In contrast, the table­top is slim and rests effort­lessly on the frame.

The Bull table is avail­able in two sizes and can be constructed entirely from oak in light, grey, black, and smoked finishes. Alter­na­tively, the table can feature an oak struc­ture with a black Marquina or white Carrara marble top, both of which feature a matte finish.

Naoto Fukasawa


Japanese industrial design icon Naoto Fukasawa is known for work that is simultaneously sculptural and functional. From CD players, cell phones, and electrical appliances, to furniture for sitting, sleeping and eating, Fukasawa’s work is always museum-quality. In fact, a wall-mounted CD player he designed for Muji is part of the Museum of Modern Art’s permanent collection. Inspired by the outline and the shape of a volume or item, he looks for inspiration in the subconscious thoughts that humans have about objects.

Fukasawa has immersed himself in the electronics world since the beginning of his career, at Seiko Epson in Japan, where he designed products such as wrist TVs and mini printers. He also spent time in the U.S. working with companies in Silicon Valley, and was involved in the development of a design concept for Apple. He continued to dream up technological products when he returned to Japan, while at the same time taking on impressive furniture collaborations that quickly made him a household name in the industry. As a furniture designer, he has collaborated on award-winning pieces for B&B Italia, Driade, Magis, Artemide, Danese, Boffi, and more. Works like the Piccola Papilio lounge for B&B Italia reveal Fukasawa’s energetic approach to minimalism. The chair’s enveloping form is utterly simplistic and captivatingly artful at the same time.
