The Multitalented Bay Area Design-Development Team
The product line inspired by important and enduring people, places and design movements.
The Iconic Panels caught my attention in the first year at the design school in 2006. Helsinki's model carved pattern engraved in my memory. The simple, understated and peaceful lines of bare birch branches, carved into wood core panel and finished with white matte laminate layer would compliment the scenery of any Nordic inspired design. In 2009 B+N announced the launch of Iconic Furniture, a collection that fit with the panels. At that time, the wall panels were available in 15 patterns, and 13 color choices, including reclaimed wood options. B+N Industries from Burlingame, CA is a multiline manufacturer and design company, originally founded as a product distributor. The company has developed and broadened inventive systems and various product lines providing high levels of functionality and aesthetics for almost three decades. Having much of the production based in California, B+N complies with the state’s aggressive environmental laws and power consumption policies.Their ability to produce fixtures from sensibly farmed or post consumer raw, VOC and PVC free materials, show the desire to manufacture responsibly. The life cycle of the final product is considered in the initial design phase. The quality is intrinsic to all products and inherent flexibility of modular systems extend the usefulness and client's need for a change in the future.
