Based on the original Metropolitan range, Metropolitan ‘14 modernises and adds curvier edges. Created in 2014 by American designer Jeffrey Bernett for B&B Italia, Metropolitan features a seat that flows uninterruptedly into the armrests. The well-known and instantly recognisable frame is crafted from a tubular steel frame which is covered in polyurethane foam with a metal base. This striking armchair is a great match for a dining area featuring the Metropolitan dining chairs by the same designer.
