or Call to Order

The Frank console by Antonio Citte­rio for B&B Italia is a versa­tile and func­tional piece of furni­ture that offers two elements easily distin­guished by their straight­for­ward and mini­mal­is­tic aesthet­ics: a fixed console and a convert­ible console-to-table option.
The Frank console is crafted from high-quality wood and has three attrac­tive finishes: brushed light oak, brushed black oak, or grey oak.
Its ability to trans­form into a table effort­lessly sets the Frank console apart. With a swift conver­sion, the console can extend to create a larger surface area, provid­ing addi­tional func­tion­al­ity when needed. This feature allows you to adapt the console to differ­ent situ­a­tions and accom­mo­date varying needs, making it a prac­ti­cal choice for versa­tile living spaces.
The inte­rior finish of the Frank console features a contrast­ing glossy lacquer, adding a touch of visual inter­est and sophis­ti­ca­tion to the overall design. With its clean lines and refined finishes, the Frank console adds a touch of modern sophis­ti­ca­tion to any interior.


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.
