Borea is a complete and eclectic collection of outdoor seats and tables designed by Piero Lissoni.
The numerous pieces in the collection have in common tubular metal structures with a fluid and seamless design, without joints and interruptions, captivating and even emerging in the detail that extends to the base. The metal bending processes take advantage of techniques typically used in the aeronautical sector and transport them into the world of outdoor furniture bringing life to a collection with an unmistakable style.
With Borea, B&B Italia continues its commitment to developing projects that are increasingly focused on sustainability. In addition to using recycled and recyclable materials, all the furniture in the collection can be in fact completely disassembled. At the end of their life cycle, each single element can be separated and disposed of following the path most suitable for each material.
I’m happy to start this new journey with a company that has written the history of Italian and international design, always remaining contemporary.
