A comprehensive survey on a leading designer behind the Made-in-Italy success story

Edited by the former director of the London Design Museum, Deyan Sudjic, this multiauthored volume offers a detailed, broad account of more than 50 years of works by Italian architect and designer Antonio Citterio (born 1950) in the field of industrial design. Working for companies such as Ansorg, Arclinea, Axor-Hansgrohe, B&B Italia, Flexform, Flos, Hermès, Iittala, Kartell, Maxalto and Vitra, since the 1980s Citterio has been admired for his combination of elegant low-key modernity and painstaking attention to detail.
This volume, the most extensive to date on Citterio, is richly illustrated with images of products and details as well as archival photographs–some personal, others that take us behind the scenes to glimpse the creation of products that have since become icons of contemporary design–and original sketches by the designer.
