or Call to Order

The Naviglio collec­tion, designed by Yabu Pushel­berg for B&B Italia, show­cases a capti­vat­ing inter­play between struc­ture and form, offer­ing a visu­ally unique seating solution.

This collec­tion combines organic forms with B&B Ital­i­a’s advanced molding tech­nolo­gies, result­ing in a harmo­nious and cohe­sive design. The inter­play between poly­gons and curved shapes creates a deli­cate balance between rigid­ity and comfort, where geomet­ric elements seam­lessly blend with soft­ness.

The uphol­stery of the Naviglio collec­tion is crafted using differ­en­ti­ated-density polyurethane, ensur­ing a cozy embrace for the body and optimal support. The absence of seat cush­ions in this design allows for a clean and stream­lined aesthetic, focus­ing on the inher­ent nature of the sofa itself.

The back­rest section features a contin­u­ous tone-on-tone or contrast­ing deco­ra­tive surface, accen­tu­at­ing the linear aspect of the design and empha­siz­ing the overall sense of conti­nu­ity.


Yabu Pushelberg


From table­top objects to expan­sive new devel­op­ments, Canadian designers George Yabu and Glenn Pushel­berg design places and prod­ucts: immer­sive envi­ron­ments, com­pelling des­ti­na­tions, and con­sid­ered goods. Yabu and Pushelberg have been partners in life and business for more than 30 years. They met in design school at Ryerson University in their hometown of Toronto back in the mid-1970s. Their stu­dio, Yabu Pushelberg, was founded in 1980 and is now present in 19 countries. With an empha­sis on inte­ri­or design, they have expand­ed their firm into a mul­ti­dis­ci­pli­nary prac­tice that address­es mul­ti­ple lay­ers of the human experience. For them, it’s all about design­ing the world they want to live in.

The focus of these designers goes well beyond what things look like, to how they make peo­ple feel. Yabu and Pushelberg have perfected this approach, working with companies like B&B Italia, Bergdorf Goodman and Linteloo.
