Design Antonio Citterio 2004
Hand blown glass
Made in Germany by Iittala

Pure pleasure. A wine carafe has two functions. It should allow the wine to breathe, in order to release the flavors and bouquet that have been locked inside the wine; and it should let light ignite the ruby-red brilliance of a vintage wine.

Citterio and Nguyen have created a mouth-blown, 2qt. decanter with every element reduced to its purest, most essential functional purpose. With lines this pure and well balanced, the decanter stands perfectly together with various wineglasses.

Antonio Citterio has worked with various manufacturers in the field of industrial design since 1972. His designs have won many awards, which have included items in the museum of modern art's permanent collection.

Antonio Citterio

Italian designer Antonio Citterio (b. 1950) still lives and works in Milan since graduating in architecture from the Politcenico di Milano. He has made designs for many manufacturers, including : Ansorg, B&B Italia, Flexform, Flos, Hackman, Iittala, Hansgrohe, Inda, Pozzi e Ginori, Kartell, Arclinea and Vitra. He operates his entirely own brand known for skilled craftsmanship in wood processing, Maxalto, under B&B Italia. The first Maxalto store opened in Paris, followed by Chicago and Miami. The company received new attention after appearing in the James Bond film Quantum of Solace. Citterio’s other work includes construction in Italy and abroad, as well as leading conferences and lectures.
What started as a glass factory in Iittala, Finland, now celebrates generations of essential objects that are made to enrich people’s everyday lives. Iittala believes objects should be distinctive, combinable and multi-functional, with lasting design that allows for individual use and expression. The progressive philosophy of design heroes, Kaj Franck and Alvar Aalto, still inspires to keep Iittala forever relevant. Iittala creates beautiful objects... timeless design that will never be thrown away.
