The company offers the outdoor version of the Bambola, the iconic armchair designed by Mario Bellini over half a century ago

Design is usually seen as the ‘creator’ of pleasing forms, the ‘incubator’ of an appealing aesthetic. In reality, form, aesthetics and the resulting product are the expression of an articulated and complex system of values that tell a story made up of people: entrepreneurs and creative people working together.

An iconic piece

The Bambola armchair by B&B Italia, part of the iconic Le Bambole collection designed by Mario Bellini in 1972 and awarded the Compasso d'Oro in 1979, tells one of these stories that have become myths. And a myth is always capable of transforming, evolving, adapting to the times and needs.

The new outdoor version

In 2024, B&B Italia offers Le Bambole in a new outdoor version that maintains the same soft curves and welcoming shapes that made the original design a classic. The use of materials that are resistant to atmospheric agents and guarantee high performance allows La Bambola Outdoor to stand out once again for its beauty and durability.

A touch of liveliness in the garden

B&B Italia's Bambola Outdoor transforms outdoor environments into places of comfort and style, adapting to different types of settings and contexts. The wide range of colours and finishes, available in exuberant fabrics, adds a touch of liveliness.
