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.
