The Charles outdoor sectional, designed by Antonio Citte­rio for B&B Italia, is a stun­ning feat of contem­po­rary design that seam­lessly combines form and function.

Crafted with the highest quality mate­ri­als, the Charles outdoor sectional show­cases an exquis­ite basket aesthetic” struc­ture in polypropy­lene, elegantly supported by inter­nal powder-coated aluminum frames. The sump­tu­ous seat cush­ions and loose back cush­ions, avail­able in various sizes, feature shaped polyurethane foam with water-repel­lent poly­ester covers that deliver unmatched comfort and durability.

The Charles outdoor sectional boasts Citte­ri­o’s signa­ture slim-profile L‑shaped legs in die-cast aluminum, finished in a luxu­ri­ous bronze nickel hue. 

Based on the iconic Charles collec­tion of the late 1990s, the Charles outdoor range is the culmi­na­tion of years of research and devel­op­ment, ensur­ing that every detail can meet the unique demands of outdoor living. The Charles outdoor sectional is just one element of this exten­sive range, which includes a sofa, modular and sectional seating, a club/​lounge chair, and an adjustable chaise lounge.

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.
