Nipa Doshi & Jonathan Levien
The productive Anglo-Indian duo, Nipa Doshi and Jonathan Levien, have designed for B&B Italia a capsule made up of three decorative functional items that combine sensuous volumes with high-tech materials starting from the ottomans Tabour, in oblong oval, square or trilobite shapes, which are the epitome of mix and match solutions. Resembling primeval marine creatures or large unicellular animals, they are designed to form archipelagos in the centre of a room or to become the natural continuation of sofas and armchairs. Textile or leather covers are stretched on the frame by a sort of oversize “button” that resembles a navel or a large eye, and seemingly establishes communication between the Tabour ottomans and the spirit of the room where they are placed.
