for B&B Italia Outdoor
The B&B Italia’s Research & Development Centre has developed Hospes, an extremely versatile ottoman that is at its best in any room. A dynamic compliment that can be used in different ways and fits perfectly with different product families. Made in two sizes and three colors — overseas blue, stone, anthracite — it is based on a robust aluminum frame covered with an interlacing of waterproof ropes. On top, the interlacing is held up by webbing that provides support and comfort.
