Charles: Antonio Citterio and the best-seller that became an international icon by B&B Italia

Considered by many to be the sofa par excellence, Charles is a project by Antonio Citterio for B&B Italia. This design sofa’s elegance, refinement and contemporaneity are uncommon distinguishing features for a product that remains impressed in the collective imagination and still arouses a great feeling of modernity as well as a strong harmony of forms.

Husk: the best-seller of comfort. Designed by Patricia Urquiola

At first glance we immediately perceive that the Husk family of products is synonymous with absolute comfort, research and the strong commitment to propose one-of-a-kind designs. Designed by Patricia Urquiola in 2014 and an overnight best-seller, Husk consists of B&B Italia beds, small tables, chairs, armchairs and sofas, all featuring the same unmistakable style. The entire collection, excepting naturally the tables, features impressive cushioning made with stitched oversized squares. The determination to reintroduce traditional processes such as capitonné (button tufting) with a contemporary flair, has allowed Patricia Urquiola to imagine a product where not only is the value of craftmanship enhanced, it becomes a predominant part of the product itself. “Comfort” is clearly the watchword here: you need only to touch Husk products to be embraced by softness and a pleasant feeling of protection. Owing to the wide variety of available fabrics, the Husk product collection can change its appearance by becoming informal or refined depending on need and which covering you decide to use. The Husk collection has been conquering the market since 2014 and has never stopped selling due mainly to the contemporary charm it conveys.

The Fat-Fat small table by B&B Italia, a best-seller since 2004

Slender, light, incredibly useful and elegant; we are speaking of the Fat-Fat small table by B&B Italia designed in 2004, once more by Patricia Urquiola. A product that has been enormously successful and is still coveted today despite the passing years, Fat-Fat is a series of small tables that reintroduce the utility of a tray.
