Intro­duc­ing the Lilum sofa from Maxalto, a stun­ning piece of furni­ture char­ac­ter­ized by its curved, organic-inspired lines. This sofa is explic­itly designed for convivial and inti­mate solu­tions and, there­fore, to exist in the same envi­ron­ment with more formal sofas. It’s the only sofa in the Maxalto range with a direct seating frame, making it a unique addi­tion to any home.

Avail­able in various compact shapes, the Lilum sofa is constructed using a mixed tech­nique. The back­rest is molded using in-house tech­nol­ogy that ensures maximum preci­sion of each profile, while the base is made using the classic tech­nique for quality with multi­layer glued lami­nated wood, without nails or glue. The aluminum profile in various finishes perfectly follows its geom­e­try that defines the contour with a touch of under­stated refine­ment, while the accen­tu­ated edge sepa­rat­ing the base from the seating is a reminder of tradi­tional handcrafted sofas.

The Lilum sofa’s construc­tion and design make it not only visu­ally stun­ning but also incred­i­bly comfort­able. It’s the perfect addi­tion to any living space that values style and func­tion in equal measure.

So if you’re looking for a sofa that combines comfort and style in equal measure, look no further than the Lilium sofa from Maxalto.


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.
