On November 9, B&B Italia held a party to launch B&B Italia Outdoor on the ground floor of the Twenty-Four Seven McKinley building in Bonifacio Global City. The collection, born from the desire to bring the brand's designs to the outdoors, was showcased through a full sensory indoor experience. Scents, sounds, and sights all came together to bring the collection to life!
The highlight was celebrity stylist Liz Uy's vignette featuring B&B Italia Outdoor pieces such as the Erica sofa and armchair, Tramae ottomans, and the Tobi-ishi small table. Other highlights around the showroom included Patricia Urquiola's Canasta and Butterfly collections; Antonio Citterio's Mirto Outdoor, Ribes, and Erica seating systems; and the Borea by Piero Lissoni.
Guests such as Raymond Gutierrez, Sarah Lahbati, and more were treated to fresh herby and fruity cocktails by The Curator and modern Italian pass-arounds served by Cibo di M by Margarita Fores, as well as a special performance from Steps Dance Studio led by Sofia Elizalde and choreographer James Laforteza! Take a look below.
