More about this product

B&B Italia celebrates the 20th anniversary of Charles, the iconic seating system designed by Antonio Citterio in 1997, showcasing a special version which offers two new coverings in orange/red and grey/blue colors, shades Charles Eames identified with in the ‘60s, and features Charles 20 in the dedicated installation designed by Migliore+Servetto Architects.

A leading piece in contemporary lifestyle, Charles owes its immense success to both its shape and aesthetics, and to the research and innovation that went into its design: values which are part of B&B Italia’s DNA and underlying themes in all of its projects. The characteristics which have made it a contemporary classic are numerous:

  • Slim but strong structure, thanks to the metal frame embedded in cold polyurethane foam moldings
  • A single seating cushion
  • Lght appearance accentuated by the essential design of the “inverted L”- shaped die-cast aluminum feet
  • High seat modularity starting with sixteen elements per type and different sizes

20 years on from its debut, Charles reconfirms its qualities as a long-time seller and bestseller product of the company and is still nowadays a reference model in the world of design worldwide. The exhibition will take place in the B&B Italia’s stores worldwide after it spins off from Milan’s via Durini showcase.

The sixteen elements offer a wide variety of linear and corner compositions while the chaise-longue end units make peninsula compositions possible for open spaces. Peninsula-style compositions can be beautifully arranged in the center of the room.
