Milan Design Week 09: B&B

B&B outdoors collection is truly delightful; the tactile quality of natural fibres together with the strength of metal and weatherproof textiles plus Urquiola's traditional-yet-contemporary flavoured design make a warm and relaxing collection.
Milan Design Week 09 - B&B

The high backrests woven in natural fibres and bronze strings give a strong personality to the Crinoline's series designed by Patricia Urquiola; the rest is all in the details: cushions attached with wooden buttons, a beautiful poncho cover for the armchair in contrasting colours, and the weaved flower motifs in the backrests. 
Also from the Spanish designer Ravel, a large and linear modular sofa enriched by the woven of polyethylene of the backrest, which was inspired in the sea and its people, fishermen. Atelier Oi designed Reel, a versatile object that can be either a low seat or a table made of an aluminium frame and natural fibre strings or polyethylene threads wrapped around it creating a complex geometrical pattern.

  • Interview: Eugeni Quitllet
    When we first saw his name close to that of Philippe Starck we googled, with no luck. There was no human trace of Eugeni Quitllet and we thought, for a brief moment, that he could be an invention, some sort of imaginary alter ego created by his famously provocative partner. But shortly after all this revealed to be a product of our unquiet imagination: he is for real, thank goodness.
