Founded with Piero Ambrogio Busmelli’s entrepreneurial vision in 1966, B&B Italia is a world-renowned Italian brand which has a leading position in the world of design and offers solutions both for homes and corporate spaces.
Comprising two sections titled B&B Italia Home Division and B&B Italia Contract Division, the brand stands out among the small brands of the industry with its innovative industrial approach to manufacture since its foundation. Though these two divisions include different brands and identities, they share the same philosophy in essence – to create a perfect balance between innovation and design to offer unique products. Home décor, exterior reorganization or office decoration – the approach of the brand stays the same despite the varying contexts.
