Flat C Wall System
for B&B Italia
Flat C wall system from B&B Italia is an intelligent use of space designed to house books, a television, and accessories in a limited amount of space. The thickness of the shelves and sides are reduced, so that joined elements are virtually invisible. The unit is inspired by minimum dimension, measuring in at 9.84″ in depth. Flat C offers an almost infinite number of different configurations based on a modular grid that organizes the composition elements and restricts proportions. Technology in the home will inevitably change; the furniture used to house them shouldn’t have to.
B&B Italia The Collection
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.
