contemporist has partnered with B&B Italia to bring you this editorial feature
After more than 20 years since its creation, the Charles sofa designed by Antonio Citterio, is considered a timeless classic for B&B Italia, proving itself over the years to be a best seller and longtime protagonist of the modern lifestyle, while also becoming one of the landmarks in the world of design.
Its lightness, conveyed by the essential design of the inverted “L”-shaped die-cast aluminium feet, and its very comfortable seat thanks to the single seat-cushion, make Charles a sofa with a very contemporary style and guarantee its great success.
The possibility to obtain an extremely versatile element that is adaptable to every situation is the concept that gave birth to this seating system.
It’s made up with 16 elements that present different sizes and allow it to take different forms, from a linear to a corner composition. Having its own personality, the Charles sofa can be beautifully arranged even in the center of the room.
