Naoto Fukasawa continues his research on upside-down truncated cone shaped seats, and, for this project addresses B&B Italia’s need to explore the seating with armrests. Two forms are ergonomically designed and developed to obtain a relaxing easy armchair with a high back and headrest, and a conversation armchair with a low back. Both armchairs have a swivel base and visible metal hinge in the back part that, as with the iconic Papilio series, allow to remove the cover, available in fabric or leather. To these seats are added a third form, an ottoman on top of which a tray element can be supported, allowing complementary use as a small table.
"When I was working on Papillo family, I realized that working on a mass of polyurethane foam is the iconic strength of B&B Italia. Hence, the idea for this design is to sculpt a form out of this material as if I was making a sculpture out of Carrara marble blocks. It is true to me that B&B Italia is a brand that creates sculpture in polyurethane. The name Harbor comes from a feeling of having a place to come back to and I also wanted this seat to have a feeling of wrapping around our body.” - Naoto Fukasawa
