B & B Italia - Tufty Time 10 Years Young

Tyler Hardie

The Tufty Time turns 10 years young this year. To celebrate it's birthday B & B Italia made the Tufty Time '15. Swing by the showroom to view this classic piece.

It seems like only yesterday, but ten years have already passed since the launch of the tufty-time seating system, inspired by the creativity of Patricia Urquiola. It was 2005, and the designer said, “I wanted to take a new look at the capitonné and chesterfield styles, with a special emphasis on the reinterpretations of 1960s and 70s, which i love”. Tufty-Time succeeded in its intention, combining traditional shapes with a freer, more informal lifestyle that translates into extremely versatile configurations. The modular system is built around an ottoman, a basic unit that is joined by central, corner and terminal elements with high or low armrests. The result is a 360° seating solution with traditional linear sofas, chaises lounges and corner and island units. The result was one of the company’s greatest successes - not only an homage to past designs but also a skillful expression of the concepts of modularity, comfort and removable covers, created with the energy of a truly innovative spirit.
