Noonu – B&B Italia

Noonu is an atoll, a corner of pure relaxation amidst the colours of the Maldives. Noonu is also the name of the new sofa system that Antonio Citterio has designed for B&B Italia: a brand-new project created to continue and complete the journey started in 2018 with B&B Atoll.

Noonu is a system of upholstery in which large sizes meet impressive flexibility. The supporting structure disappears from view, creating “islands” which appear to almost float, suspended in mid-air. The seats themselves are deep, with a single, large seat cushion that guarantees extreme comfort, inviting and relaxing whilst also characterising the overall aesthetic. The tilted back is designed to accommodate cushions, which can be distributed however you wish. The design is made even more intriguing by a support element that can be arranged in any manner of positions: a roller cushion bound by sophisticated webbing to a die-cast aluminium frame, which sits beneath the seat cushion. This allows you to use it freely as a terminal armrest element or as a headrest, to read or to work, placed between the seats or removed entirely, depending on how the sofa is being used. As Antonio Citterio tells us, the story of Noonu is rooted in a journey that started a few years ago: “Atoll and Noonu stemmed from a single idea, namely a cylinder that could be used as an armrest and cushions distributed freely over the sofa. What’s new in Noonu is the apparently suspended seating, which extends all the way to the floor, and the new types of elements that we have defined as ‘piano’ and ‘sail’ elements, lending a certain identity and richness to the design”.
