Founded in 1966 as the result of the
entrepreneurial farsightedness of Piero Ambrogio Busnelli, B&B Italia is a
leading Italian company in the international scene of design furnishings for
both home (B&B Italia home division) and contract purposes (B&B Italia
contract division). The firm distinguished itself from the onset for its
industrial calling by introducing a managerial approach to corporate organisation,
thus going against the handcrafting, family-run rationale typical of the
sector. Based in the north of Milan, the firm’s prestigious headquarters were
designed by R. Piano and R. Rogers in 1972. Its products have contributed to
writing the history of Italian design, the adventurous history of the success
of taste, technologies and creativity that have made Italy famous throughout
the world and distributed the “Made in Italy” brand on international markets.
The collection of B&B Italia furnishings issues from the skill to represent contemporary culture and to promptly respond to the evolution of living habits and requirements. Modern furnishing elements that are strongly distinctive and characterized by exceptional quality and timeless elegance are the result of the unique union of creativity, innovation and industrial know-how.
Research, which has always been a key strategic factor in the corporate development policy, is conducted by the internal R&D Centre that is a real forge of cultural meetings and experiences, strongly fuelled by partnerships with international designers. The unique features of each product convey the values of research, creativity and quality that form the DNA of the company.
An extraordinary convergence of design and industry, the expression of a contemporary approach.
