Revival vs. Innovation
by Fabian Peters | 4/25/2019
The grand review: These are the trends and highlights of this year's Milan furniture fair.
Named after the coral formation B&B Atoll, the new modular seating system by Antonio Citterio,
is a refined expression of a balanced aesthetic form and a decisive contemporary style that is also extremely elegant. The system is built on three basic platforms - 190 cm and 240 cm, both
with 90 cm depth, and 130 cm with 140 cm deep - that are complemented by armrest and
backrest elements to form various types of seats: sofas, dormeuses, corner-end modules, single
or modular elements with chaise longue and pouf. The frames have light, slender lines and are
applied on high die-cast supports with metal profile emphasising the line between the structure
and upholstery. Two finishes are available, pewter and black chrome.
The pieces are given even more character by a supporting element to be placed wherever desired, a bolster in two sizes - 65 and 90 cm - attached by leather straps to a die-cast structure. This accessory can be inserted between the seat cushion and the base structure to provide an additional support or become an armrest or backrest at will. B&B Atoll is a dynamic project with a constantly fresh ability to adapt to different compositions and create different seating types, from informal relax versions to most formal, also made possible by the use of complementary back cushions.
