Cozy Small Table
for B&B Italia
With the Cozy small table, Antonio Citterio revisits the aesthetics of the classical three-legged pedestal table, converting it into an intentionally eccentric item of high design. An attractive element that merges into various interiors, it has a 23.5″ high supporting frame in die-cast brass with polished finish or in metal alloy with painted black chrome or pewter painted finish. The 23.5 diameter top is available in several variants, namely in oak wood with several finishes (brushed light, grey, brushed black and smoked), in eucalyptus frisé wood with glossy surface, and in bronze back-painted glass.
Design On Stage
The Collection 2019
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.
