A series of events will celebrate the exclusive launch of the marble versions of the Tobi-Ishi table – the first project by Edward Barber & Jay Osgerby for B&B Italia. A special installation dedicated to this cutting-edge project will be on display in the main window at the Brompton Road Store, where all the new 2012 collections of B&B Italia and Maxalto will also be presented, including the brand new Theo armchair by Vincent Van Duysen and pieces that expand the Husk and Papilio armchairs series as well as the Flat.C and Pab storage systems.
The Store layout has been completely renewed to present the B&B Italia and Maxalto collections in a new perspective whilst creating a platform for critical debate and discussion about the design sector as a whole.

On Thursday 20th September, 6-8PM, B&B Italia will be hosting the panel discussion “Can Design Save Europe?”.  Leading figures from the sector will be discussing how design, manufacturing and innovation can help driveEurope out of recession.

The talk will be chaired by Vicky Richardson, Director of Architecture, Design and Fashion at the British Council. Places are limited.
