Founded in 1949, in the late 50s, at the height of the new Italian design research expansion- BBB acquired high visibility thanks to its sharp identity, producing chairs with refined and elegant shapes. In a constant mediation work, BBB succeeded in interpreting the avant-garde spirit of the time, between experimentation and tradition, in a modern and measured style, to lay the foundation of a rich culture of living.
A great story that knows how to renew itself over time
