Antonio Citterio: the Gentleman of design.
Antonio Citterio, born in Meda in 1950, has earned the epithet of "gentleman of design" thanks to his unmistakable gentle and elegant vision of the object. Antonio Citterio is today one of the most important architects and designers on the world scene.
Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel and Partners studio, founded in 1999 in collaboration with architect and designer Patricia Viel, is today a world icon of design and style. The characteristic behind this winning and ingenious collaboration is the extraordinary ability to freely range from the design of large urban surfaces to small details and even to works on an international scale such as hotels and residential complexes. An example, the Cascina Merlata for Expo 2015.
His extraordinary design ideas, skills in industrial design, as well as the ability to make every object the protagonist, have ensured him not only fame but also continuous collaborations with important Italian and foreign companies such as Ansorg, Arclinea, B&B Italia, Flexform, Flos , Hermès, Iittala, Maxalto and Kartell, for which he created the Mobil locker system awarded the Compasso d'Oro in 1994.
