Additional materials, colours and sizes may also be available. Please contact a Space sales consultant for further information.


The two-piece Bankside collection was originally designed for the members' room at the Tate Gallery of Modern Art in London.

The support frame can be in aluminium with satin finish, black painted, pewter, or in light, grey, black and smoked oak wood. Covers are available in fabric or leather.

With its slender profile and high resistance materials, Bankside is primed to meet the demands of contemporary contract projects.

Bankside takes its name from the Tate Modern, which is housed in the former Bankside Power Station. Architects Herzog & de Meuron transformed the station into the Tate Modern and Jasper Morrison was invited to select the furniture for the public spaces.

Jasper Morrison is now widely regarded as one of the leading furniture and product designers in the world. At the time, he had built an international profile overseas, particularly in Japan, but was not as well-known in his own country. There are now two Tate Moderns and both projects remain Morrison's only commissions in a public building in the United Kingdom.Jasper Morrison, leading designer on the scene of contemporary design, this year joins the B&B Italia's team of designers with Bankside, a micro edition of seats for the community, originally conceived for the prestigious Tate gallery of modern art in London, designed by the duo Herzog & De Meuron.

The Bankside armchair and sofa summarise functional features associated with public use, but their slender profile and high resistance to wear perfectly meet also the demands of domestic settings. The support frame can be in aluminium with satin finish, black painted, pewter, or in light, grey, black and smoked oak wood. The covers are available in leather or fabric.
