Oh, it rains! Lounge Chair
for B&B Italia Outdoor
Oh, it rains! lounge chair is a piece of considerable impact, with a large backrest to act like a wall or partition to create an intimate setting. When necessary, the backrest can fold down on top of the seat to cover the cushions. In the very first collaboration between B&B Italia and Philippe Starck, this collection is enhanced by optional cushions that guarantee extra comfort and a dynamic look to this large object, suitable for private settings and for outdoor areas.
From a technical standpoint, the backrest is made with a double layer of water-repellent fabric, which makes it 100% waterproof. For this reason Oh, it rains! can be covered with any type of outdoor fabric present in the B&B Italia collection. It is also possible to choose the version with a side table integrated into the structure, available in natural teak wood or Mediterranean stone.
B&B Italia Outdoor Collection
Philippe Starck has a mission and a vision: creation, whatever shape it takes, must make life better for the largest number of people possible. Starck believes this highly poetic, political, rebellious, benevolent, pragmatic and subversive duty must be borne by all and he resumes it with the humor that has accompanied his approach since the earliest days. Despite his thousands of projects - completed or in the making - he remains committed to never forgetting the essential.
Starck possesses an anticipatory concern for environmental implications. His profound comprehension of contemporary mutations, his enthusiasm for imagining new lifestyles, his determination to change the world, his devotion to a positive reduction, his love of ideas, his desire to defend the intelligence of usefulness - and the usefulness of intelligence - have accompanied one iconic creation after the other. His technological miracles are vectors of democratic ecology, focused on action and a respect for the future of both humans and nature. Predicting the phenomena of convergence and dematerialization, Philippe Starck has always devised objects that demand the most from the least.
Philippe Starck is all of the above, but above all, he is a man of honesty, in the purest tradition of the Renaissance artists.
