or Call to Order

The JJ chair and JJ Rocking chair are a mixed media master­piece! By combin­ing thermo-treated ashwood with stain­less steel rods, Citte­rio creates a frame that is not only infused with tremen­dous visual inter­est but a remark­able sense of levity. The addi­tion of criss­crossed belting, leather, and the unpar­al­leled ethe­re­ally volu­met­ric texture of the exotic Mongo­lian lamb fur estab­lishes the JJ rocking chair as a focal point in any inte­rior which it is placed. It’s also an extra­or­di­nar­ily comfort­able chair that allows its user to relax through gentle rocking movement.

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.
