B&B Italia, Canasta outdoor collection

B & B Italia Outdoor Collection

With summer temperatures rocking high in Milan these days, I think it is high time to present you the new outdoor collections of B&B Italia! From their lounge chairs to their garden sofas, their designs are all amazingly fabulous.. check it out!

First of all, my favourite line: the Canasta collection, designed by Patricia Urquiola.

All these seats have frames in aluminium with weather-resistant polyester powder painting. The circular seat can also be fitted with a light foldable canopy that reduces the passage of sunlight by up to 92% or can also have a swivel base that rotates 360°… waou!

Then the Charles outdoor collection, designed by Antonio Citterio. 14 years after its debut in the B&B Italia collection, the Charles sofa system – a long-time bestseller for the company – is being introduced in this outdoor version. The piece is here again super lightweight thanks to its slim aluminium frame.

I also adore the Crinoline Collection, designed by Patricia Urquiola with its soft, curving shape in natural or bronze rope. I totally see myself wrapped in a poncho enjoying the view in this one ;)

Lastly, I fell in love with their Husk outdoor collection, another design of Patricia Urquiola. This whole lign is made out of both recycled and recyclable materials, AND in addition to being recycled materials, all components have also been tought so as to be all fully disassembled (to simplify the recycling process till the end).. bravo!

And just in case you were wondering.. they created a sort of water-passing padding to enable water to seep through the cushions without stagnation.. so no problemo if it rains on these lovely cushions.
