Le Bambole Settee by Mario Bellini

$8,500

About

A Le Bambole settee by Mario Bellini with peaked corners, retaining the original red wool fabric. Designed by Mario Bellini for B&B Italia, the design was inspired by a filled shopping bag that was shaped when the bag was set on the ground and squashed. From the research undertaken by the designer and B&B Italia's internal R&D department, the Centro Ricerche & Sviluppo, the idea moved towards the shape of a cushion. Le Bambole came into being between 1970 and 1972. The series turned out to be an icon for the 1970s and won the "Compasso d'Oro" award in 1979. Le Bambole, said Bellini, “are not covered in fabric, instead they are built of fabric.”
