or Call to Order

Abseo is a strik­ing table, with an essen­tial design under­scored by thick profiles and asym­met­ri­cal legs, making it a piece of furni­ture that domi­nates any room. Avail­able in one square and two rectan­gu­lar sizes (63“x 63″, 43 – 1/4″ x 94 – 1/2″, 43 – 1/4“x 118″), the table now comes in a new version in semi­gloss Chilean tineo wood, a precise styl­is­tic feature also found in other pieces in the collec­tion, as well as in more clas­si­cal natural wenge or brushed light, brushed black and grey oak. The special folding tech­nique used to create it high­lights the table’s refined work­man­ship, creat­ing perfect conti­nu­ity between the surface and the edges of the top.


Antonio Citterio


Inspired by icons such as Eileen Gray, Charles and Ray Eames, and George Nelson, Italian designer Antonio Citterio has built an extremely successful career in the furniture industry. He’s known for his emphasis on craftsmanship and materiality, a combination that’s defined a longtime partnership with B&B Italia. Citterio has been responsible for designing all new collections by Maxalto since 1993. He ensures that each product, like his Dives sofa or Alcova canopy bed, clearly delineates its function and is comfortable and liveable as much as grand and luxurious.

Born in 1950 in the north Italian city of Meda, Antonio Citterio opened his first office at the age of 22. The architect and designer supposedly had decided on his career path by age 13.

Citterio went on to collaborate with Terry Dwan on architecture projects through the late 1990’s before forming a practice with Patricia Viel that’s today called Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel. Their significant work includes the Technogym headquarters, Bulgari Hotels around the world, Qatar Airways lounges, the Mandarin Oriental hotel in Milan, and the B&B Italia Center for Research in Novedrate, Italy.
