The sustainability improvements are staggering comparing the original design with its 2022 counterpart. The original Le Bambole had a 17 per cent product circularity (product circularity meaning it could serve as raw materials for new products once it reached the end of its lifespan). This year’s version has a 77 per cent product circularity; all parts were re-designed to aid in disassembly, repair and end-of-life recycling of materials.
Despite all of these radical changes in the interests of sustainability, the overall comfort of the collection has been improved–particularly the three-seater sofa Granbambola, which has been redesigned with a deeper seat for a more inviting and inviting and enveloping experience. “I feel the pleasure of revisiting this family, because it confirms to me that it is anything but aged; on the contrary, it is enjoying a thriving and promising second life, a rebirth done in a big way, done with enthusiasm, with breadth, with decorations and with the original flourishes,” Mario Bellini says.
