Milan-based Antonio Citterio (1950- ), architect and product designer, is known internationally for his product designs for B&B, Vitra and Kartell. This book presents an overview of Citterio's architecture, including the interiors he designed by Esprit in the 1980s when the clothing manufacturer was one of the first to commission a younger generation of emerging architects, as well as a detailed analysis of his product designs. Included are well-known pieces like his office chair for Vitra and his colourful plastic rolling carts for Kartell as well as his concept for the interior of a sports car for Alfa Romeo of 2000, which was never realized.

Review:

'entertaining look at one of the leading lights of Italian interior and product design - whose work for the likes of B&B Italia, Vitra and Kartell has been imitated by many but never equalled.' IDFX Interior Design magazine 'The book is organised in three clear parts, which are based on three fundamental periods in Citterio's history ... a neat catalogue ... [a] very thorough presentation.' Blueprint 'a serious study' Florida InsideOut 'Congratulate yourself on your fine taste when you covet that sleek aluminium office lamp and discover it was designed by the legendary Antonio Citterio. ... Bassi lifts the curtain on Cittterio in a comprehensive new book ... Accompanying photos, sketches and commentary give insight into the maestro's creative process. Antonio Citterio is ready for his spotlight.' Array
