Lithos Storage Unit
The Lithos Storage unit designed by Antonio Citterio is ideal for both homes and commercial spaces. Perfectly placed in the center of the room, these pieces allow their contents to be viewed, extracted, and repositioned quickly with perfect order.
Cabinets are available in one size, 71″ x 19 – 3/4″ x 31 – 1/2″ H, and three different versions with extractable trays and drawers. The entire range pairs tops in transparent extra clear glass with painted metal structures in sophisticated colors: bronzed nickel, black chrome, graphite, and amber. Shelves, drawers, and extractable trays — the latter featuring a leather lining in colonial or dark brown leather — are available in natural wenge and oak in the different options in the collection: brushed light, brushed black, grey, smoked oak.
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.
