Beyond the realms of design and innovation, B&B Italia is committed to sustainability and environmental responsibility. They understand that creating timeless pieces goes hand in hand with preserving the world they inhabit. At the heart of this is a belief that long product cycles are a neccessity. Each bit of furniture it made with astounding quality, and by building to last, B&B Italia effectively reduces waste.

B&B Italia ensures that every step of the production process is guided by eco-friendly practices, from sourcing materials responsibly to optimizing energy consumption in manufacturing facilities. One incredible example of their dedication is the way they source lava stone from Mount Etna, purely because it is five times more sustainable than marble.
