Antonio Citterio diseñador sin igual, mundialmente reconocido por la genialidad de sus obras Antonio Citterio or as we often call Knight of Italian design (due to its numerous creations), born in 1950 in Meda, Province of Milan in Lombardy. The Italian is a master of timeless design. He began to create more than 40 years ago and 13 years designed his first piece in the carpentry workshop of his father. At 18 he received a design award by a cupboard handmade, with only 22 years, and before he even finished his degree in architecture in Milan, opened his first studio.

What is the secret to continue working after more than 40 years?

The living room Milan Furniture has met 51 years, I've been going for the last 41 and in each edition always think, oh !, there are many good people and I'm not doing anything. They are jealous of the creativity of others, but I always want to do better. If you never stop to think, never stop working. Fortunately, this is the motivation to continue in office. And I keep thinking, maybe a year, when I grow up, I'll do better.

That is, the secret is not to stop ...

The main laboratory of ideas Citterio is in the center of Milan, on a side street near the Duomo. It is a sober bill contemporary building designed by his studio, with a granite facade, like many classical buildings in Milan, and large windows. Designer's office is on the top floor.
