Pablo Outdoor Low Tables
for B&B Italia Outdoor
The Pablo Outdoor seats’ decisive yet soft lines are perfectly balanced in the small cement outdoor tables. Linear, solid, and highly geometric, the tables articulate the architectural essence of the series. The Pablo Outdoor Low Tables come in two sizes and two colors ‑an antiqued white or cement grey. The low model works perfectly as an island defining a conversation area. A higher, narrower model with a square base is ideal as a service element next to the sofa or armchair.
The Pablo Outdoor is the first outdoor collection designed by Vincent Van Duysen for B&B Italia. It is a complete collection that includes an armchair in two depths, a sofa, and a footrest made of teak wood, the ideal material for outdoors.

Vincent Van Duysen
Vincent Van Duysen is a master of simplicity. His architecture and interior projects reveal his emphasis on form, material, light, and landscape. Whether constructed of wood, brick, or concrete, his structures stimulate quiet moments of reflection and beauty, framing the user as they walk up a staircase, offering an unexpected view of the surrounding terrain, or collecting light as it comes and goes. There is vitality in every detail, even if the overall impression of his work is minimalist and stark.
The Belgian talent, who worked at Ettore Sottsass’s studio in the late 1980’s before starting his own studio in Antwerp, approaches his industrial design work in a similar way. Every piece Van Duysen creates, whether the modular Surface table for B&B Italia or the Ratio kitchen for Dada, is an extension of the interior where it will live. The designs are therefore always functional and user-friendly. They also carry the same emphasis on natural materials and simple shapes without unnecessary adornment that defines Van Duysen’s architecture.
