or Call to Order

The Richard sofa is the seating system which distin­guishes itself by its balanced contem­po­rary design, with refer­ences to clas­si­cal atmos­pheres. Its modular theme is devel­oped by 76 elements in two depths: 36.5″ for more formal and contained solu­tions, and 48.5″ for larger compo­si­tions and more infor­mal seating. The extreme flex­i­bil­ity of the system and the ease with which the differ­ent elements can be assem­bled allows the living space to be inter­preted in the most varied config­u­ra­tions, from formal to more relaxed, with seats, benches, ottomans and chaise longue. 

The wide range of covers, in fabric with match­ing tones or contrast­ing profiles, and in leather with profiles in the same leather, allows an even greater level of customiza­tion, offer­ing mono­chro­matic or contrast­ing solu­tions. The struc­ture is empha­sized by a metal­lic profile at the base, either painted black chromed or pewter painted. Four sizes of optional cush­ions (25.5″ x 19.5″, 19″ x 19″, 21.5″ x 12″ and 15″ x 15″) increase the comfort.

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.
