or Call to Order

Ribes is the new outdoor modular seating system designed by Antonio Citte­rio with a focus on versa­til­ity, customiza­tion, color, and researched mate­ri­als. The meaning behind Ribes repre­sents trans­for­ma­tion and the system is espe­cially suited to those areas that are neither in-nor outside: veran­das, shady patios, under a loggia or on a covered terrace allow­ing a fluid approach to the open spaces in the home. Color comes into play in the painted frames in shades of anthracite, sage, and clay. These same tones are then picked up in the back and arm supports combin­ing the color sage and clay with a natural colored inter­lac­ing and anthracite to one in a match­ing shade, and the same for the brack­ets of the roller sections. The textile choices offered were inspired by tradi­tional fabrics collected during trips to South America, rein­ter­preted and redesigned using very clear color schemes that still leave a wide choice of differ­ent combi­na­tions allow­ing maximum customization.

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.
