Terminal 1 is a modern-day design classic. Created for B&B Italia by French designer Jean-Marie Massaud, the futuristic-looking chaise longue is organic, sensual and elegant. A fluid plastic form floats over a minimal tubular steel frame and is topped with a leather seat that comes in eye-catching shades of white, anthracite, camomile and petrol. Ergonomically ingenious, Terminal 1 doubles up as an armchair and a chaise, offering ample support, whatever your preferred sitting style. The sculptural piece will look great in your living room, bedroom or even an entranceway.

This and other B&B Italia icons are currently on show in B&B Italia's new stand-alone showroom on Dubai's Beach Road. From Zaha Hadid's sinuous Moon System sofa to the all-enveloping Piccola Papilio chair by the Japanese designer Naoto Fukasawa and the stylishly slimline Michel sofa by Antonio Citterio, the 460-square-metre showroom is home to some of B&B Italia's most exciting creations. In addition to sofas, armchairs and other seating solutions, there are sumptuous beds, wall systems, accessories and tables, including the popular Athos dining table by Paolo Piva, with its satin-painted oak wood and glossy black chrome-plated finishes. With a commitment to quality materials and cutting-edge technologies, the Milan-headquartered B&B Italia is recognised as being at the forefront of the design industry. Established in 1966 by the forward-thinking Piero Ambrogio Busnelli, the company has collaborated with some of the leading designers of our age to create furniture that is both innovative and timeless.
