or Call to Order

The Erica Seating System, designed by Antonio Citte­rio for B&B Italia, has been updated with new sofas in three sizes, offer­ing a deeper seat and a more lived-in appear­ance. The curved back­rest and inter­lac­ing remain, but new uphol­stery options provide a softer, more natural look. The color options include anthracite, tortora, or a sage frame with natural-colored inter­lac­ing. A variety of cushion covers in coor­di­nat­ing tones and designs are also available.

As part of the Quick-Ship program, the Erica armchair with an anthracite frame and Agate 153 cush­ions are avail­able for imme­di­ate deliv­ery. For more infor­ma­tion, please refer to the spec sheet or call 800.886.0867. Addi­tion­ally, the Erica dining chair is also avail­able in the collection.


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.
