Antonio Citterio | Master of Modernism

1950 Meda, Italy: a pioneer in furniture design was born. One of the most under-stated designers in the business today, Citterio continues to design countless objects that most designers could only dream of creating.


Citterio graduated in architecture at the Politecnico di Milano and since 1972 continues to design for most of the leading furniture and accessory manufacturers world-wide, such as B&B Italia, Flexform, Flos, Iittala, Kartell, and Vitra. B&B Italia’s Maxalto collection is designed and coordinated exclusively by Antonio Citterio.

He has also been engaged in architectural works, dealing with construction projects and interiors, both in Italy and abroad. Citterio holds lectures and conferences and his work has been extensively exhibited and published.

It also has a very unique handle to hold and steady yourself when you are reaching for a high cupboard. This is a great feature for older people or anyone who has a glass of wine while preparing dinner and needs that special serving dish from a top cupboard for instance…? I just can’t decide between which colour I like more either the orange or the anthracite.
