B&B Italia, Gio sofa - design Antonio Citterio

n the one hand, there is white: the color of balance and freshness. On the other hand, there is teak wood: an excellent material for outdoor living. Together they couldn’t help but become the impeccable highlights of the outdoor space as they create an aesthetically pure living room. The key to this contemporary concept of comfort is simplicity—one that is more relaxed, practical, comfortable and follows the classic dictates of outdoor style in order to create a versatile and welcoming space. The sectional sofa with enveloping armrests is matched to the chaise longue and, taking up its lines, austere low tables. In the back, a bit off to the side, there is a lamp borrowed from inside home: soft, white, round and with a lampshade that recalls paper lanterns. There is a soft and delicate atmosphere that combines domestic intimacy with the freedom of the outdoors.
