The B&B Italia Project Collection is a new line of coordinated tables, chairs, high-end casegoods and soft seating that are the result of Teknion’s new partnership with Italian brand B&B Italia. With products manufactured in Italy as well as in North America, the partnership will allow for shorter lead times and faster delivery, making the B&B Italia Project Collection more responsive to contract client needs in the North American market.
