“When I was working on the Papilio family project, I realized that the iconic strength of B&B Italia is in working with polyurethane foam as a mass. Hence the idea for this design 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 sculptures in polyurethane. The name Harbor comes from a feeling of having a place to come back to. I also wanted this seat to have a feeling of wrapping around our body”.
