About the designer: Antonio Citterio is an Italian architect and designer. From 1972 to 1981, after graduating from the Milan Polytechnic, Citterio worked primarily in the field of industrial design in collaboration with Paolo Nava. At the same time, he also pursued his own work in both architecture and interior design. Between 1986 and 1996, he worked alongside his wife, architect Terry Dwan, designing buildings in Europe and Japan. In 1987 and 1994, Antonio Citterio received the Compasso d’Oro-ADI award. In 2000, he founded “Antonio Citterio and Partners”, an architecture and interior design practice, actively developing projects across the globe and embracing all scales of intervention to develop complex design projects in synergy with a qualified network of consultancy specialists. In 2010, the practice changed its name to “Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel and Partners”. Today the practice is known as “ACPV Architects Antonio Cittterio Patricia Viel” and is led by Citterio, Viel and eight partners. From 2006 to 2016, Antonio Citterio was professor of Architectural Design at the Mendrisio Academy of Architecture (Switzerland). In 2008, he was honored with the title of “Royal Designer for Industry” by the Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures & Commerce of London. In 2017, at Casa Artusi, he was awarded the “Premio Artusi”, important annual recognition of those who leave an indelible mark on the relationship between mankind and food. In addition to his constant work in architecture, Antonio Citterio continues his long-standing activity in the industrial design sector working in collaboration with Italian and international companies. Some of his works are part of exhibitions at MoMA in New York and at the Georges Pompidou Center in Paris. In 2021, with ACPV Antonio Citterio produced “The Importance of Being an Architect”, a documentary film conceived as a virtual dialogue and musical journey in four acts that investigates the responsibility of architects in building the society of tomorrow. The film has been featured in several festivals worldwide and on the TV channel Sky Arte.
