Cordoba Lounge Chair
for B&B Italia
The Cordoba lounge chair, designed by Foster+Partners for B&B Italia, epitomizes luxurious craftsmanship and environmental responsibility. The oak wood frame of this armchair beautifully blends Nordic precision with an oriental spirit, creating a fusion of the finest quality materials that are second to none. The attention to detail is evident in every curve and section of the design, with a focus on reducing excess weight while maximizing technical functionality and comfort.
The thick leather used in the back and seat of Cordoba is a testament to the exquisite materials used in this piece. It provides an opulent look and feel with options for either smooth or embossed leather. Plus, with easy removal and maintenance of the leather components, Cordoba demonstrates its commitment to responsible design by allowing all materials to be easily separated when necessary. Perfect for any space, this armchair is the ultimate expression of design, precision, and quality.
Fosters + Partners Industrial Design Studio
Fosters + Partners Industrial Design Studio, founded by Norman Foster in 1967, is a global studio for architecture, urbanism, and design rooted in sustainability. Foster and the team around him have established an international practice with a worldwide reputation, working as an ethnically and culturally diverse studio. The partners, who are all shareholders, are the core of the practice. They are central to our continuing evolution and are responsible for all projects shared amongst our six architectural studios. This makes the studio capable of tackling many projects, particularly those of complexity and scale.
The industrial design team, established in 1980, has developed a wide range of products from door handles to wind turbines and fountain pens to the cabin of an executive jet, from a tap to the fit-out of an ocean yacht. Besides products for particular projects, the studio also works directly with clients on product commissions or with companies to develop new products for commercial manufacture.
