Once again setting the pace in Hong Kong for world-class design, COLOURLIVING has introduced the Azucena and Maxalto brands into its specialist B&B Italia monobrand store.
“COLOURLIVING has partnered B&B Italia Hong Kong for many years,” says Paolo Bottegal, general manager, B&B Italia Asia-Pacific. “We are thrilled to finally launch our two exclusive brands here and we wish that our legacy can further inspire and engage the local design community.”
Spanning 350 sq-m on a single floor, the B&B Italia Hong Kong is dedicated to the latest collections from the B&B Italia Group brands, including works by internationally renowned designers such as Antonio Citterio, Piero Lissoni, Patricia Urquiola and Gaetano Pesce.
It is here that the Azucena brand makes its debut in Hong Kong, with one-of-a-kind, timeless creations by Milanese architect Luigi Caccia Dominioni. Together with Maxalto, it will add a modern-classic touch to the B&B Italia showroom.
Antonio Citterio’s Ribes modular seating system, for example, was partly inspired by traditional fabrics from South America, which were reinterpreted and redesigned using very clear colour schemes that still allow maximum customisation. ‘Ribes’ means transformation, and is especially suited to those areas that are neither inside nor outside, such as verandas and shady patios.
Denise Lau, chief executive officer of COLOURLIVING, says: “Our partnership with B&B Italia has gone from strength to strength.We are extremely honoured to be further entrusted with the exclusivity of Maxalto and Azucena from the B&B Italia Group.”
Founded in 1966 by Piero Ambrogio Busnelli, B&B Italia has long shaped the development of Italian design, making the phrase ‘made in Italy’ synonymous with the highest quality, luxury and craftsmanship.
