We all feel most at ease when in the company of the people closest to us, surrounded by the personal items and objects we’ve gathered throughout our lives. The new b Solitaire collection from bulthaup was designed in recognition of this, and encapsulates the value of that comfort.

From the kitchen to the wider reaches of the home, the b Solitaire collection – encompassing a table and bench as well as shelf and tray units in a variety of forms and materials – was designed to speak of quality, familiarity and contemporary design. Its design has the flexibility to dwell in the full range of domestic spaces, equally at home in the kitchen as the living room and bedroom.

An open, matte-black aluminium frame provides the basis for the b Solitaire family – a platform on which various overlays and fittings can be applied for the duration of the life of the furniture. The design of the shelf and tray units can be easily orchestrated to suit one’s individual needs. Pull-out trays with prism inlays or glass tops; a solid oak or stainless steel top; an enamelled cast-metal or oak-slat grid – a b Solitaire shelf or tray unit can be personalised to most fittingly accommodate your personal items.

Just as the nature of the applied fittings can be selected to suit one’s needs, so can the number of shelf levels and their heights. Each unit is open on all sides, and therefore designed to overcome the restrictive modes of front, back and sides. And as such, there is equal freedom in terms of how b Solitaire is placed within your space. Wherever it is positioned, it will convey a lightweight and transparent appearance.

The most precious moments are those spent together. This is why the b Solitaire range is completed by a charming family table. The bulthaup b Solitaire table, bench and bench cushion in leather accompany and help create these extraordinary moments.
