Mario Bellini

(Milano, 1935)

“It is an absolute first. It is the first time that an upholstered item was born just like a padded cushion, nothing more.”

Awarded eight times with the Compasso d'Oro, in his career Mario Bellini has experimented with new forms of upholstered furniture, creating original and avant-garde projects. Declared an icon of design, Le Bambole collection, designed for B&B, offers a completely unstructured seat, “not covered in fabric, but built in fabric”. His “chameleon” furnishings are also innovative as every modular element can be used separately and independently from each other.
