Alcova 09 Bed
The Alcova 09 Bed designed by Antonio Citterio for Maxalto is a classic canopy bed with a modern interpretation. Slightly higher and smaller in scale than the standard Alcova bed from Citterio, the 09 is also suitable to be positioned mid-room.
The base and headboard are available in your choice of leather or fabric. The Alcova 09 floats showing an exposed support structure and is available in American Queen and King in four different finishes: brushed light, brushed black, and grey oak as well as Sucupira wood.
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.
