The Cleide chair from Maxalto is a stun­ning piece of furni­ture that combines classic design with modern mate­ri­als and produc­tion tech­niques. Designed by Antonio Citte­rio, this chair is a re-edition and modern­iza­tion of a classic chair that was orig­i­nally created at the begin­ning of Maxal­to’s journey. The chair has been updated to adapt to the evolu­tion of living spaces and is avail­able in various sizes, making it a versa­tile option for any room in the house.

The chair features a solid wood struc­ture that comes in three differ­ent finishes: grey oak, brushed light oak, or brushed black oak. Each finish show­cases the artistry and crafts­man­ship that Maxalto is known for, embrac­ing the heritage of Italian cabi­net­mak­ing tradi­tion. The Cleide chair’s elegant and restrained propor­tions make it a time­less piece that can fit seam­lessly into any inte­rior design style.

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.
