Patricia Urquiola brings the outdoors in with this beautiful sofa collection inspired by nature. She uses woven patterns to revive and personalize the concept. Traditional yet contemporary, the Canasta Sofa Collection by B&B Italia is a perfect blend of old and new. It has a defined contemporary look that is devoid of nostalgic influence. It is made from Vienna straw which boasts a lovely geometric shape. Urquiola reinterprets the regular Viennese Thonet straw/cane weave by enlarging its ever-present repetitive pattern to form Canasta’s structure. A variety of low and dining-height tables with gorgeous graphic surfaces in ceramic tile brilliantly enrich the collection.
The Canasta Sofa Collection by B&B Italia was created specifically for the outdoor environment. The designer’s love for woven forms and unique patterns shines through in all the pieces. Canasta is named after the Spanish word for basket. Its name references the frames of the chairs, sofas, and tables. The collection is made suitable for the outdoors by fabricating its woven strips in bronze or white polyethylene.
