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.
New look for B—Line’s “Toro” chair
24 June 2020

Totally in steel, the new version of Toro, a chair with a strong figurative character, was launched by B—Line in 2017 and was the winner of the 2018 Iconic Awards prize.

Created by German designer Michael Geldmacher, the all-steel version of Toro completes the series in the catalogue, where it is proposed with an upholstered or multi-layered wooden seat for indoor use or in the outdoor model with interwoven seat and backrest and steel frame, or with an entirely galvanised steel structure, with sheet metal seat.

The new steel variant enhances the lightness and transversality of the chair which can be easily combined with different types of tables and can adapt effortlessly to both home and professional contexts.

With well balanced features and faithful to the original, it preserves the whole frame as well as the particular half-round backrest that unequivocally recalls the shape of a bull’s horns, from which it derives its name.

With its marked contemporary touch, along with its scratchproof matt finish, the new Toro is B—Line’s latest creation and complements the other designer chairs in the 2020 collection.
