The typically Italian touch of Antonio Citterio gives shape to Hybrid, a seating system for B&B Italia outdoor that masterfully combines design rigor and comfort in a project that puts textile at the center.
After the great success of Ribes, Antonio Citterio developed some design ideas behind it and created Hybrid, an innovative new system of modular seating elements that it is so versatile it can be arranged into an almost infinite number of combinations. The platform is available in eight sizes and two depths, while the armrest and backrest come in two heights. Additional cushions in various sizes enrich the range, offering countless design and chromatic solutions. The Hybrid collection also includes a series of new outdoor fabrics in five colour variants that are accented by refined trims. All the objects in the Hybrid collection can be dismantled completely. At the end of the life cycle, each individual element can be separated and disposed of following the path best suited to each material.
The key role of the textile dimension stands out immediately, with upholsteries that cover completely the generous padding, the absolute protagonist. These are typical elements of indoor furnishings, which find with Hybrid an outdoor interpretation. Hence the name of the collection, which is proposed as a real link between the inside and the outside of the house. Hybrid represents in fact the perfect furnishing element for climates and spaces that are defined by a continuous blend of inside and outside environments, with rooms that open to an en-plein-air dimension, and for living spaces integrated into terraces and gardens!
