Antonio Citterio.

The gentleman of design.

Designer Antonio Citterio.

Master of elegance. And of timeless designs.

Antonio Citterio. Architect, designer and perfectionist. Nobody else has had such an impact on Italian design. His style reveals a combination of timeless shapes and high-quality materials. Uncompromising. Which is precisely why his products, interiors and architectural concepts are so popular. From cutlery to the lamp. From the kitchen to the bathroom collection. From the chair to the company headquarters. Always understated. In the interests of functionality. And of beauty. Because, according to Citterio: “Those who enjoy the daily ritual of washing should do so with beautiful products.”

Antonio Citterio handles the entire spectrum: from hotel bathrooms to luxurious private bathrooms. An important wealth of experience. For bathroom design. For AXOR. Implemented in three collections since 2001.

Luxury bathroom with a masculine touch.

Merging home decor and the bathroom.

The architect focuses on the room. To then bring together architecture and design. This is reflected in the first bathroom collection from Antonio Citterio for AXOR. Inspired by the design of neoclassicism seen in the 1930s. Monumental, yet timeless. Sophisticated. Award-winning.

This was followed by a second collection. Then a third. Plus an accessories range. All based on the philosophy of perfection, of Italian elegance: AXOR Citterio, AXOR Citterio M, AXOR Citterio E, AXOR Universal accessories.
