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.
Aki

In Japanese, Aki means “Autumn”, and it is specially in this season that its usefulness as an umbrella stand becomes apparent. Rodolfo Bonetto, who designed it in 1975, looked to essentials when creating this minimalist and amusing, but absolutely efficient and complete object. Made in rotomoulded polyethylene, Aki is designed with four holes to accommodate that same number of umbrellas, whatever the shape and size. It can be used indoors or outdoors since, by its very calling, it has no problem with water and even on the rainiest days, introduces a dash of good spirits thanks to the range of colours in which it is available.
