or Call to Order

Antonio Citte­ri­o’s Astrum is a collec­tion of tables distin­guish­able by their unique​“sawhorse” base — made of a single die-cast aluminum support in painted graphite or amber finish. It’s this cast system that brings excel­lent versa­til­ity to the design. The series includes differ­ent sizes of rectan­gu­lar, oval, and round tables with customiz­able top options. Specif­i­cally, tops come in a brushed oak in light or black with the possi­bil­ity of a central marble section. There are also lacquered options or glossy marbles for a more elegant look. As an added feature, the round versions have the option of insert­ing a swivel tray. No matter the combi­na­tion, Astrum stands out for its clean, rigor­ous, and angular design while main­tain­ing a light yet substantial effect.

Antonio Citterio

Italy

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.
