Mario Bellini "Le Bambole" Sofa for B&B Italia, Faux-Fur, 1971, Set of 2

About the Item

Mario Bellini “Le Bambole” two-seater sofa for B&B Italia, Mongolian faux-fur, Italy, 1971, set of two. This is a timeless Postmodern design icon. The starting point was a shopping bag containing formless material shaped when the bag was set on the ground and squashed. In the shared research undertaken by the designer and the company's internal R&D department, the Centro Ricerche & Sviluppo, the idea moved towards the shape of a cushion. This is how "Le Bambole" came into being between 1970 and 1972. The search for a new shape for upholstered furniture: all parts are shaped like a giant soft cushion. Mario Bellini (1935) is one of the most influential and innovative contemporary architects. Starting in the early 1960s working on urban planning, he became one of the most critical product and furniture designers of the 20th century. He won 8 Compasso d'Oro and prestigious architecture awards. Our atelier carefully restored and reupholstered the sofa in a special edition of Mongolian faux-fur. Slight signs of use and time.
