or Call to Order

Piero Lissoni designed Liagò for B&B Italia, a new range of storage units ideal for dining and living areas. The collec­tion consists of two low storage units with doors and drawers and one high storage unit with hinged and flap doors. Liagò is in the Venet­ian archi­tec­tural tradi­tion — an outdoor loggia made of wood, often featur­ing a marble floor. It is a place suspended in space and time, a precious and rare area that allows lagoon houses to breathe and let the sun in. Piero Lissoni starts from this classic and rein­ter­prets it, main­tain­ing its frame and mate­ri­als, but with a new use and updated role. 

Side and back panels are assem­bled to create a compart­ment inside them, allow­ing the passage of elec­tri­cal cables and other elements. The collection’s furni­ture can be placed directly on the floor or on elegant adjustable steel feet. They are made of brushed light oak, light canaletto walnut with raw or grey effect. The range includes lacquered finishes in 18 glossy and satin colours, which can radi­cally trans­form each piece’s style. The inte­ri­ors are covered with a refined silky, anti-scratch, anti-finger­print, anthracite mate­r­ial. Liagò can be equipped with an inter­nal light­ing system and for the high storage unit open compart­ment. The project features details such as soft seals applied to the hori­zon­tal edges, concealed hinges, flap open­ings with hinge and hidden mech­a­nism. These are sophis­ti­cated but discreet elements for this range of reas­sur­ing looking objects which hide high-level technological solutions.

Piero Lissoni

Italy (1956)

Industrial but playful might sound like a contradiction, but in the hands of Piero Lissoni, it makes perfect sense. The Italian architect and designer has become one of the most accomplished of his generation, with collaborations with everyone from Alessi to Flos to Tecno. After training as an architect at the prestigious Politecnico di Milano University, Lissoni formed his own firm to create witty takes on modernism’s clean lines.

In 1996, he launched a visual communication agency, Graph.x, followed 17 years later by Lissoni Architettura, which handles interior design projects. But Lissoni’s furnishings really show off his charm: his Otto seating system for Cassina, named for the way the numeral is pronounced in Italian, tosses a titular number of comfy cushions into a slim aluminum rectangle for a perfect blend of hard and soft. And his Extrasoft system for Living Divani tosses away the frame entirely. It’s a chic take on the kid’s bedroom favorite, the beanbag, but with a lifetime’s worth of possible arrangements.
