or Call to Order

The Erica Seating System designed by Antonio Citte­rio, orig­i­nally debuted in 2017 receives an update with new sofas, offered in comfort­able three sizes — the 170 and 216 cm styles with a 96 cm deep seat and the 153 cm version with a 140 cm deep seat. Still based on the same char­ac­ter­is­tic curved back­rest and inter­lac­ing as before but offer­ing a deeper seat and lived-in appearance.

New uphol­stery options give the collec­tion an even softer and more natural look, making it 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 Erica armchair is avail­able for Quick Ship. The Erica dining chair is also included in our collection.

Antonio Citterio

Italy (1950)

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.
