There’s something very accomplished about a stylish outdoor setting. Perhaps it’s because we tend to think of outdoor spaces as ‘casual’ entertaining options, when someone really nails their outdoor space design you just get the feeling they’ve got things together.
Already responsible for some of our favourite outdoor products, B&B Italia have upped their game again with three new exclusive designs from Antonio Citterio, all dedicated to the outdoors. Elegant, practical and comfortable, these new additions make it easy for one to pull off a stylish outdoor space with little effort.
A SPONSORED FEATURE
An accomplished architect, Antonio Citterio combines his passion for form and materiality in his furniture collection, bringing many of the qualities that characterised his previous projects for B&B Italia to an outdoor setting – technological innovation, ergonomics and quality material.
The three new designs in Citterio’s collection – Ray, Erica and Ginestra – all evoke a relaxed aesthetic that fits well in a residential setting. For those seeking an everyday outdoor seating system, the Ray series has you covered, reimagining the successful indoor product series for outdoor use with hardy, weatherproof materials like aluminium, textilene and polypropylene fibre. With two depths, multiple modular elements and a myriad of colours to choose from, this seating series is perfect for even a small courtyard space or deck.
The Erica series is similarly space-practical, with an armchair, sofa and chair that come in a stackable version for ease of storage. Based on a simple colour palette of white, grey and anthracite the pieces blend aluminium elements with high resistance fabric specially formatted for outdoor use. And for those with a little more room to move, the Ginestra series features large rectangular and round dining tables in a natural teak for a timeless, Nordic look. Complimented by simple teak dining chairs, the series brings to mind dinner parties on balmy summer evenings.
While Citterio has given careful attention to the form and innovative materials of these new series, the products collectively explore the role of outdoor spaces in our modern lives. With pieces that are space-sensitive, durable and stylish without trend-focused, this is a collection that will encourage you to spend more time outside – in fact, you may find living and dining ‘en plein air’ becomes a regular part of your home routine.
