Antonio Citterio: Design

Regular price $108


The volume traces over 50 years of activity in the field of industrial design by Antonio Citterio, one of the masters of contemporary design. Introduced by Andrea Branzi and Francesco Bonami, the volume – structured in seven chapters – offers an accurate and extensive account of a work that has seen the production of over 600 products, united by a stylistic code capable of combining a discreet and elegant modernity with a meticulous attention to detail: from the Diesis series and the Baia sofa, designed with Paolo Nava and which mark the beginning of a ten-year collaboration with B&B Italia, to the important collaborations with Flexform, Arclinea, Vitra, Flos, Axor, up to the most recent works with Cassina and Illy.

The rich iconographic repertoire includes product images, archival photographs – some of which tell the “behind the scenes” of the birth of some design icons – and autographed sketches.

Texts by Stefano Casciani, Francesca Picchi, Deyan Sudjic (former director of the Design Museum of London)
