New Angles: daily inspiration

Mario Bellini

Posted in furniture by menno1976 on October 2, 2009

Earlier this year I purchased five retro Amanta sections by Mario Bellini for B&B Italia. I still want to reupholster them, but I already like them very much as they are (otherwise I wouldn’t have bought them of course..).
I wanted to share these photos of retro modular couches by Mario Bellini with you.

Amanta for B&B Italia (the company was called C&B at the time), 1966

Mario Bellini’s activities range from architecture and urban design to furniture and industrial design. Many of his designs are now in the Permanent Collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
