During the NYCxDESIGN Award ceremony on May 20, the Eda-Mame sofa, designed by Piero Lissoni for B&B Italia, has been awarded in the category “Product – Residential Sofa (Sofa)”. NYCxDESIGN Award is the prestigious award presented by Interior Design and ICFF that every year celebrates outstanding achievement across major areas of design—from architecture to interiors, products to accessories, craft to technology.

Moreover on the occasion of NYCxDesign, taking place in New York between May 10-22, B&B Italia has organized two important events in the Madison Avenue store: “UP 50 Celebrations”, an installation dedicated to the 50th anniversary of the Up Series, and a talk featuring the Italian architect and designer Piero Lissoni in conversation with Marcus Fairs, founder and editor in Chief of Dezeen, on the occasion of U.S. launch of the DOCK seating system by Piero Lissoni.
