At IMM Cologne the outdoor spring by Antonio Citterio for B&B Italia

The Italian firm launches at Cologne's fair three new collections to live “en plein air” in elegance and comfort

2017 has barely begun, and B&B Italia starts the new year focussing on furniture for the garden and external spaces. The Italian firm presents at IMM Cologne three new collections dedicated to outdoor furniture by Antonio Citterio. The goal? Moving to the garden or terrace the design quality, comfort, and refined aesthetics of the indoor furniture by B&B Italia.

First innovation: Ray seating system is completely revised for outdoor use. Two distinct families of outdoor furniture, Natural and Fabric, have been developed from the original designs for interiors by Antonio Citterio. They have in common a light structure in extruded aluminium but feature different materials and colours.

Ray Outdoor Natural seeks harmony with nature and is characterised by the braided rope pattern, realised in stable and sturdy texteline, which suits the outside setting. Ray Outdoor Fabric features the compact "ribbon" plot that upholsters the frames of sofas and armchairs. The material used is polypropylene fibre, which, exposed to UV rays and atmospheric agents, preserves untouched the series colours: turquoise to dark blue, acid green to turtledove, all the way to bordeaux.
The strong suit of Erica collection's armchair, sofa, and chair is the lightness and transparency of their painted aluminium frames. The seating comfort of the series, specifically developed for outdoor use, suggests pairing with padded cushions upholstered with weaved strips of durable polypropylene fibre. The shades chosen by Citterio, all intermixable, are white, turtledove, and anthracite.  
B&B Italia's 2017 outdoor catalogue could not do without new and elegant external dining tables. The Ginestra series, provided with matching chairs, includes large-size rectangular and round models with natural teak tops characterised by sophisticated drawings and central inserts in calacatta white porcelain stoneware.
