The Suita Sofa is part of a large range that includes many individual pieces of furniture. They can all be mixed and matched for use in many different spaces in numerous ways. Suita pieces can be harmoniously integrated into existing arrangements and also create a collage with other pieces in the Suita range.
The Suita Sofa ushers in a new phase in the partnership between Vitra and Antonio Citterio that began in 1985. For the very first time, they have created a modern, timeless and elegant sofa range for the living room in Citterio’s signature style. Suita is a collaborative creation between Vitra and Citterio and serves to add a system including both sofas and chairs that all subtly combine Italian flair for lightness and elegant workmanship with Swiss industrial quality and precision.
Antonio Citterio was born in 1950 in Italy.
Citterio graduated in architecture at the Politecnico di Milano and since 1972 has worked for many leading manufacturers such as Ansorg, B&B Italia, Flexform, Flos, Hackmann, Hansgrohe, Inda, Pozzi e Ginori, Kartell, Arclinea and Vitra. Maxalto, a B&B Italia brand, is designed and coordinated entirely by Antonio Citterio. He has also been engaged in architectural works dealing with construction projects and interiors both in Italy and abroad. He holds lectures and conferences all over the world and his work has been extensively exhibited and published.
He has won many prizes, among which the prestigious Compasso d’Oro in 1987 and 1995. His products are part of the MoMA permanent collection and the Centre Georges-Pompidou in Paris.
