Antonio CitterioBorn in 1950 in the north Italian city of Meda, Antonio Citterio opened his first office at the age of just 22, before he had even completed his architecture degree in Milan. Since the 1990s at the latest, the successful architect has also been one of the most internationally sought-after designers, as is clear from the portfolio of renowned companies for which he works: world leading design brands such as Vitra and B&B Italia (furniture), Arclinea (kitchens) and Hansgrohe (bathrooms), all successfully implement his ideas. However, project developers and hotel chains also benefit from the Milan-based designer's esprit and design ideas. Citterio's CV is adorned with luxury lodgings for the prestigious Bulgari hotel chain, a luxury spa in Moscow and the title 'Royal Designer', which has been awarded to him by the British Royal Society.
