or Call to Order

With the Eileen side table design, Antonio Citte­rio pays a bit of homage to legendary Inter­na­tional Style archi­tect, Eileen Gray, whose side table designs from the 1920s forged a similar float­ing top” and atyp­i­cal foot­print” aesthetic that Citte­rio has also employed here with his Eileen side tables. The Eileen tables feature base frame­works of drawn steel in bright chrome or lacquered finishes that engen­der a signa­ture, very engag­ing cruci­form foot­print for each of the table config­u­ra­tions. The base of each table supports a single thin edge top or combi­na­tion of top and same-size float­ing shelf in a range of lacquered or oak veneer finishes. The combi­na­tion of mate­ri­als within the form itself will engen­der a sophis­ti­cated, strik­ing look for any space that Eileen occupies.

Eileen side table is avail­able in three differ­ent size versions. The base of each is avail­able in bright chromed steel as well as lacquered finishes of black, bronzed nickel, or pewter. Simi­larly, all three versions are avail­able in 15 differ­ent lacquer finishes as well as oak veneers in brushed light, brushed black, smoked, or gray. New options of painted bronzed reflec­tive glass on grey painted MDF wood fibre panel, Marquinia black, Carrara white or Sahara noir marble have recently been added.

Antonio Citterio

Italy (1950)

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.
