Milan Design Week 2018 Part 1 | B&B Italia, Maxalto, Rimadesio and Moroso Highlights 

The 2018 Salone del Mobile provided a feast of the world's latest designs showcasing our favourite brands at Matisse. Over the next few weeks we will provide you with the latest design news from the Fair.

B&B Italia

B&B Italia presented Walks of Design at Salone del Mobile, a creative journey across two distinct contexts of interior and outdoor settings.

"Bay is a seating collection of generously proportioned objects which cradle the body in its soft and well defined volumes. A sofa in two sizes, an armchair and a high-backed armchair, perfect for relaxation and informal gatherings, with a solid yet airy interwoven structure.” Doshi Levien present Bay, their new 2018 design for B&B Italia Outdoor.

The B&B Atoll seating system designed by Antonio Citterio is a new modular system, a refined expression of a balanced aesthetic form and a decisive contemporary style.

"B&B Atoll is a versatile collection that reinterprets traditional elements, like the bolster, associating them with a sleek, refined structure that fits smoothly into the contemporary language. It is versatile because it can be used in a wide range of settings, from the most formal, when partnered with the armchairs, to informal situations. This is thanks to the possibility of creating an L-shaped configuration with the daybed as end element"


"After 25 years of presenting products that use artisanal materials and processes, I felt the need to offer a 'moulded' piece, a chair with a fusion structure, thanks to a significant industrial investment by the company. At the same time, I wanted it to be part of the Maxalto collection. Caratos is absolutely contemporary, but recalls some twentieth century objects. It echoes the idea of bronze through a 'full' opaque finishing that absorbs light, and the great quality of the leather upholstery, giving it a saddlery look"  Antonio Citterio


Rimadesio exhibited a stage for story telling based on solid proposals and solutions developed through a year of designing and testing. They presented new designs rich in details and exclusive finishings for a balanced proposal between architectural and furniture design, technical evolution and stylistic research.

Rimadesio have updated the Zenit system with coordinated combinations of cabinetry in aluminium bronze and brand new elm melamine, castoro leather and brown melamine internal drawers.

Dress Bold is now available in a material back panel version with exclusive luxurious fabrics in 6 different colours. All systems designed by Giuseppe Bavuso.


Patricia Urquiola configured an interdisciplinary and intercultural exhibition space for Moroso to celebrate the concept of Material and Art and to showcase their latest designs.

The new Chamfer Sofa celebrates twenty years of the Moroso and Patricia Urquiola collaboration.
"Discussing this anniversary with Patrizia Moroso, for our twenty-year work anniversary, we decided to work on a simplification of a series of echoes from projects done in the past, linking up for example to Redondo and other sofas which for us represented a sort of cradle or nest. We lowered, we geometrised, we produced purer, cleaner lines and this border, this broken edge came out, this Chamfer, a word used often in architecture where, when we join two lines in a curve, we join them in a chamfer" more

Arclinea at Eurocucina 2016  

As part of Eurocucina 2016 in Milan, Arclinea celebrated its 90th year,
presenting a new project by Antonio Citterio - Principia

Function and Ritual motivate the design of Principia, highlighting natural materials, innovative production technologies and artisan detailing. The concept of the Kitchen as the heart of the home is revisited becoming the main driver for interiors. Function, purpose of work and shared experiences combined, form the model of Principia. A connected, coordinated, beautifully crafted and functional kitchen concept.

Principia merges an antique-look-rough wood with an innovative stainless steel finish. The new development of technological PVD (Physical Vapour Deposition) is embedded throughout the design. To find out more click here.
