Design Antonio Citterio & Toan Nguyen, 2005

The technology used in the design of the Spoon chair makes this an outstanding avant-garde object: the effect is achieved using specific processing techniques, which results in a stylish material that has high levels of mechanical resistance and a width which is easy to customize.

The Spoon chair consists of a batch-formed monocoque body, the reinforced curved connection of the shaft to the central stem provides maximum levels of flexibility and comfort. The lever that regulates the mechanism is perfectly hidden away inside the shaft. The Spoon chair is fitted with a replaceable cushion in the same color, has two comfortable armrests and moves on castors.

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.
Kartell's image and its 59 years of history are described through the company's products. The development, the corporate strategies, the attention the company has paid to technology, the project and the design can be appreciated by observing the products Kartell has produced. Kartell's products express the language and the atmosphere of the period in which they were created, but at the same time, they are "contemporary articles," they incorporate many other values and messages and this is why they have become an integral part of our domestic design world.
