or Call to Order

The Nidus Sofa, designed by Antonio Citte­rio, is part of a collec­tion of uphol­stered furni­ture inspired by the precise need to create a series of formal propos­als with a relaxed feel for moments of social­iz­ing and conver­sa­tion. Citte­rio has achieved this objec­tive by paying great atten­tion to struc­tural details like the embrac­ing shape of the curved sofas, which are avail­able in two sizes. With the absence of arms and the high back, this solu­tion makes it possi­ble to bring people together in a fresh, relaxed, and unusual way.

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.
