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.
Gemma

Karim Rashid has become a top designer on the world scenario, creating objects with lines that appear sinuous and almost organic. With Gemma instead, he explores a new interpretation of rotomoulded polyethylene, proposing a small, compact and multi-faceted armchair (because of its compact size it can be used for table seating) that recalls the shape of a precious stone.
With its decisive character, geometric and slightly ironic air, Gemma provides comfortable seating and, because of material and natural inclination, lends itself equally to indoor and outdoor use.
