The Eracle series extends from the living room to the bedroom with an unusual storage unit of strictly calibrated proportions, very easy to use. The new volume, also in double-sided version, has the same characteristics defining the storage units for the living room: volumes, doors and back panels with coupled transparent glass (with high-tech internal fabric) and bronzed nickel edges. The fine materials guarantee a minimal and sophisticated look also to the new element: the frame is made of brushed light oak, grey oak, brushed black oak, smoked oak and natural wenge; the inside is covered with coloniale leather melamine faced and equipped with a bronzed nickel painted chest of drawers. Trays and clothes rails covered in coloniale leather and a full range of accessories offer a wide range of personalization solutions. The light placed inside the unit is a refined vintage detail recalling the display furniture of the 1950’s.
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.
