The B.B. Collection consists of a dining table and matching dining chairs, reminiscent of Wanders’ New Antiques collection. This style is reflected in the dining table, which has a top in MDF, available in black or transparent finishes. The weight of the classical archetypal forms is contrasted by the lightness of thin and transparent plastic.
