Canasta’13 by Patricia Urquiola is given a Tortora melange makeover with the new polyethylene fiber, creating an interlacing that evokes the designer’s crinoline collection. The sofas, armchairs, and small armchairs all feature new fabrics and are accompanied by small tables that harmonize with the new colors. The cement colored porcelain stoneware-finished top of the canasta ’13 dining table is now available for the service elements of the same family.

Patricia Urquiola approached the outdoors starting from the theme of woven patterns - reviving and personalizing the concept with a traditional look in mind, but giving it a decisively contemporary look without using too much nostalgic influence.
In Canasta B&B Italia’s most sophisticated technologies are fused with history and culture: an interweaving between the ancient and the modern. The exclusive workmanship of the fibers is performed in the Philippines, home of age-old tradition where skilled craftsmen have been practicing this art for generations. B&B Italia adds its unmistakable innovative mark to tradition by using a polyethylene fiber (30 mm width) in two different colors: white and bronze.
A creative puzzle of shapes, signs, colors allows anyone to customize Canasta to fit their own personal taste. They’re made through exceptional manufacturing procedures that give them freshness, softness and make them pleasing to the touch as well as extremely resistant to usage.
The collection is enriched by a series of tables and low tables with structures in white and black varnished steel and tops in ceramic tiles, with decorations that reproduce the patterns of the cushions of the canasta chairs in the shades of white, black, brown, cyclamine-color and turquoise.
The result is an innovative solution in the field of outdoor furnishings, with products that maintain the same quality, aesthetical and comfort standards of all the B&B Italia’s collections.
Canasta ’13 has a new polyethylene thread in melange Tortora, with an elegant natural-looking texture that makes it lighter, and more transparent and luminous due to the weave that allows the light to pass through. There are also new fabrics for sofas and armchairs of all sizes, accompanied by tables that blend harmoniously with the new colors.
