B—Line is a company specialised in designer furnishings which, ever since its beginnings, has manufactured contemporary products along with evergreen icons from the past, such as Joe Colombo’s famous Boby storage trolley. Solid, transversal and flexible designs, the result of collaborations with international designers and of an exclusively Italian production.
B—Line is a company, brainchild of its founder, Giorgio Bordin, that restores life to several historical icons of design on the Italian scenario. These are works that have disappeared over the years, made obsolete by the unrelenting ferment of a market that is brimming with innovation. Of the products re-edited, some have made history “contaminating” many facets of art and design, such as Joe Colombo’s famous Boby.
From the very beginning, side by side with its re-editions, B—Line places contemporary furnishing accessories, resulting from collaborations with international designers. Tangible, factual and transversal projects that have the responsibility and honour to co-exist with the great cornerstones of design and to encourage, in terms of style and character, a smooth switch from home environments to working spaces and from outdoors to indoors, areas that are increasingly hybrid and mercurial, as demanded by contemporary lifestyles.
From our debut to now: B—Line turns 20!
22 January 2019

The year was 1999, and it all started with the idea of renewing the life and splendour of extraordinarily precious furnishing objects, even in the absence of the original moulds.
B—Line begins in earnest: old drawings and the recovery of some inevitably age-marred pieces have brought to light veritable icons that made the history of design and whose loss seemed unacceptable. Examples of these are Joe Colombo’s Boby trolley storage unit and Multichair as well as Rodolfo Bonetto’s 4/4 coffee table. A company debut that was definitely more emotional than rational, but one that was to continue through time.

During the ensuing years B—Line, collaborating with famous designers, but also with young talents, extended its catalogue to include a selection of furnishings and accessories with differing functions, characterized by versatility of use, appropriate deployment of materials and with vanguard technologies integrating with skilled manual craftsmanship. All extremely transversal products, almost always in the twofold indoor/outdoor version, adaptable to home/office/contract contexts.

Numerous too were the coveted prizes awarded to B—Line’s innovative creations annually exhibited at Milan’s Salone del Mobile. Suffice to think of the Good Design Award for Gemma in 2013, and the three successive prizes for Fishbone (2015) Helix (2016) and Merano (2017) to which recently, and for the fourth consecutive year, another two were added. For the Bix, small armchair, designed by the Zanellato-Bortotto duo, and for Maddalena Casadei’s Fonda table.
The recognitions received are witness not only to the aesthetic value per se, but also to the quality, safety and sustainability of the B—Line products, deriving from a commitment to maintaining production completely within Italy, and from the constant monitoring of the entire productive process as well: from the materials, to the work in progress, to the finished product.

2019 will be a truly special year, richly innovative: a year B—Line will face with unflagging enthusiasm, initiative and creative spirit. All prerogatives that have been the distinguishing imprint of the company ever since the outset.
