Discover the Story and Legacy of Antonio Citterio


Antonio Citterio is an Italian Interior Designer who has an incredible career already set within the interior design industry. Be it due to his furniture, design or architecture initiatives his work is notable among contemporary interior designers worldwide.

Antonio Citterio was born in Meda in 1950. He first started his design office in 1972 and graduated in architecture at the Milan Polytechnic in 1975. During the period between 1987 and 1996 he worked in association with Terry Dwan and, together, they created buildings in Europe and Japan.

It was during 1999, that alongside with Patricia Viel, Antonio Citterio founded “Antonio Citterio and Partners” (presently known as “Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel and Partners”). The studio currently has its headquarters in Milan, operating at international level developing complex long-term projects, from all scales and in synergy with a qualified network of specialist consultants.

Among some of the top projects that came from this company, we can point to projects such as the Bulgari Hotels in Milan and London and the W Hotel in St. Petersburg (Russian Federation). Considering his work in regards to his take on the Bulgari and Mandarin Oriental hospitality projects in Dubai, London, Milan and Bali, it’s no wonder he recently got involved in a whole new project: Arte, a coveted area located north of Miami Beach. This incredible summer place is located at 8955 Collins Avenue in Surfside, an area between Indian Creek, Bay Harbor Islands and  Bal Harbour and it’s been quite the hit this last Summer.

Aside from his architecture career alongside Patricia Viel, Antonio Citterio himself has an amazing path as a designer. The Italian designer is mostly known for his collaborations with prestige Italian brands, among them B&B Italia. He’s made several collections for the brand, most notably the Maxalto collection which was enrichened last year with some more elegant chairs, and seating systems, featuring new range extensions and new finishes.

He’s also a presence in many academic levels of Italian design, being an architectural design instructor at the Università Della Svizzera Italiana, Academy of Architecture in Mendrisio.
