Mario Bellini “Le Bambole” Modular set for B&B Italia, faux-fur, 1971, set of 5. The starting point was a shopping bag containing formless material shaped when the bag was set on the ground and squashed. In the shared research undertaken by the designer and the company’s internal R&D department, the idea moved towards the shape of a cushion.
This is how Le Bambole came into being in 1971, winning the “Compasso d’Oro” award in 1979. The search for a new shape for upholstered furniture: all parts are shaped like a giant soft cushion. If we take apart Le Bambole, we get cushions in part because they are a natural “free” shape, difficult to describe in a product drawing, but easy to perceive and analyze.
