Born in 1950 in Meda, Italian designer-architect Antonio Citterio is admired for his multifaceted furniture designs, which span bold-colored plastic storage solutions for Kartell to luxury seating designs for B&B Italia and Maxalto.

Citterio opened his own studio in 1972, three years before he graduated from Milan’s Polytechnic School of Architecture. Since then, he has collaborated with major European design houses including Ansorg, Arclinea, Axor-Hansgrohe, B&B Italia, Flexform, Flos, Hermès, Littala, Kartell, Sanitec Group, Technogym, Tre Più, and Vitra.

Citterio’s designed a large number of notable furnitures designs include the Sity Sofa (1986) for B&B Italia. Among his the Harry designs, named after Harry Bertoia. Since 1993, Antonio has worked as Head of Design at Maxalto, a subsidiary brand of B&B.

Between 1987 and 1996, he worked on many architectural projects in Europe and Japan with American architect Terry Dwan. Projects from this time include the redesign of a block in the historical center of Seregno, Italy (1987); the Esprit headquarters in Amsterdam, Antwerp, and Milan (1987); and industrial plants for Vitra in Germany (1992-2009) and Antonio Fusco in Milan (1993).

In 1999, he co-founded the architecture and design firm Antonio Citterio & Partners with Italian architect Patricia Viel. The firm remains the largest architectural firm in Italy,

Antonio: My designs are almost simple sketches that express an idea. I depend on the dialogue and story telling with the research and development department to do the rest.”

A single-seater fauteuil model Baisity created in 1986 by Antonio Citterio who won the Compasso d’oro a year later with this design. Beautiful and comfortabel seating. The chair has two wheel upfront so it can easily moved to another position in your home.
