On the occasion of Tefaf New York Fall 2019, championing the finest art from across ages, 1stdibs furnished the Vip Lounge of the fair with a selection of Azucena pieces designed by Luigi Caccia Dominioni, one of Italy’s most illustrious designers and architects in the post-war period. Among the exhibited products, there were some of the most emblematic items in the history of Italian design: the Catilina chair, the armchair ABCD, the Cilindro ottoman, the small table Fascia Specchiata and the lamps Imbuto.
Actually, last September 2019 1stdibs, the leading global marketplace for luxury design, announced the partnership with B&B Italia Group to launch the first digital storefront in the U.S. market for the Italian firm’s Azucena brand. Azucena debuted on the 1stdibs platform with a full collection of seating, lighting, tables, sofas and decorative objects. The brand was founded in 1947 by architects Luigi Caccia Dominioni, Ignazio Gardella and Corrado Corradi Dell’Acqua. Until now, its products were available only in the main B&B Italia monobrand stores and in an exclusive series of selected stores.
