Discover the B&B Italia and Maxalto space

The historic headquarters of mobilnovo opens a large exhibition space entirely dedicated to B&B Italia and Maxalto, where you will find the most famous products of these two brands, true icons of our times.

B&B Italia and Maxalto, a history of high-end design

The timeless elegance of B&B Italia products has written the history of design with collections that anticipate trends and respond to the evolution of contemporary tastes and living needs.

This vocation for innovative creativity is confirmed by the Maxalto brand, a brand of B&B Italia, founded in 1975 by the famous architects Afra Bianchin and Tobia Scarpa.

Timeless icons

In the exhibition space of Via Anastasio II could not miss the reissues of the most iconic pieces of the brand, including Up 50 armchair, Le Bambole armchair and Camaleonda sofa. The UP 50 armchair in beige/ petrol green striped jersey fabric was created to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the UP series designed by Gaetano Pesce back in 1969. The Le Bambole armchair is part of a series originally conceived in 1972 with limited edition fabric for Stella McCartney and marks the first collaboration with a furniture brand for the famous designer. Upholstered in hand-drawn "Fungi Forest" fabric from the Stella McCartney Summer 2022 collection, it is produced according to environmental sustainability criteria. The Camaleonda sofa, re-designed by Mario Bellini in 2020, in the new version retains many of the elements that made it iconic in the 70s.
