for B&B Italia
The Noonu sofa system by Antonio Citterio for B&B Italia is a new addition to the brand’s collection, complementing the B&B Atoll line. With Noonu, Citterio presents a cohesive and versatile upholstery system.
The seats offer deep comfort with a large cushion, while the inclined backrest allows for customizable cushion arrangements. A unique support element — a roller cushion attached to a sophisticated webbing and aluminum frame — can be positioned in various ways, serving as an armrest, headrest, or removed entirely.
The design creates visually striking “islands” as the supporting structure remains hidden, giving the impression of floating elements. Noonu harmonizes with existing B&B Italia collections, forming a unified narrative. The collection invites customization and adapts to individual needs and preferences. Experience the artistry of Noonu as it combines comfort, functionality, and aesthetics to transform your living space into a realm of style and relaxation.
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.
