Erica Outdoor Dining Chair
for B&B Italia Outdoor
The Erica dining chair by Antonio Citterio achieves a refined lightness and is ideal for both public and residential settings, featuring seat and back cushions for ergonomic comfort together with strength for outdoor use.
The collection debuted in 2017, and receives updated upholstery in 2019 that gives an even softer and more natural look, making the collection even more inviting. The unusual color juxtaposition of frame and interlacing in anthracite, tortora or a frame in sage with natural colored interlacing can be complemented by a vast range of cushion covers, in an array of tones and designs, all coordinating with each other.

The Outdoor Collection
Timeless Outdoor 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.
