Once more, the search for new technologies has resulted in a project that has brought about the Otto chairs. It's a family of chairs whose innovative element is represented by the design of the backrest, made of two materials which ensure a high degree of comfort. Avant-garde technology, a remarkable aesthetic result, 360-degree functionality: these are the features of Otto chairs, which play on a mix of softness and flexibility, opacity and transparency.

Antonia Citterio was born in Meda and lives and works in Milan. He graduated in Architecture at the Politecnico of Milan and from 1972 he has worked for many leading manufacturers such as B&B Italia, Vitra and Kartell. He has also been engaged in architectural works dealing with construction projects and interiors both in Italy and abroad. He holds lectures and conferences all over the world and his work has been extensively exhibited and published.

The Otto series produces a higher degree of comfort, for a plastic chair, through the innovative use of varying flexibility, one matte (available in white, anthracite, grey or mustard yellow), the other in a softer semitransparent plastic. The chairs are stackable and available with fully upholstered seat and back, or in a plastic shell version, all providing the same ergonomic qualities.

Citterio’s other work includes construction in Italy and abroad, as well as leading conferences and lectures.
BandB italia was founded in 1966 by the enterprising and charismatic piero ambrogio busnelli. The company quickly became an international reference point for upholstered furnishing thanks to a brilliant new technological process which introduced an industrial approach to manufacturing designer furnishings for the first time in the history of the sector. Over a period of decades, its innovative influence spread to other sectors in home and outdoor furnishings and finally reached the contract furniture market.
