Antonio Citterio

Last night I attended a bathware product launch designed by Antonio Citterio for Axor, where I was lucky enough to meet the legendary man himself (and get his autograph - yes, I know, I'm a sad design groupie!). Citterio, who to me, epitomises modern italian design, has been one of my architect idols since the age of 15 and wanted to be an architect myself (that all changed when the school told me I would have to chose maths and sciences over arts and creative subjects...). So today, I thought I'd revisit some pics of his own Milan home which was completed in 1998 - 10 years ago now - but it still looks just as fresh and modern today as it did then.

i hope you got him to autograph a free chair or somethin'!

funny- i wanted to be an architect myself at one point, then i too discovered about all the math and science! nope, not for me! i'd rather fluff pillows!

M21 - unfortunately, not. Not that I have space for another chair right now...but I'm sure if a free, and signed, chair was thrown my way I wouldn't knock it back!

Design groupie, that's very funny! I'm glad I'm not the only one who avoided architecture because of the math :)
This place is amazing.

Wow - beautiful space. I used to live in Milan but must admit never had a place as posh as that. I haven't yet been to Hong Kong but will visit via your blog for now!
