Architect and designer Antonio Citterio has developed hotels, offices and residences worldwide, while also producing furniture and accessories for companies like Vitra. Born in Meda, a small Italian city, Citterio earned a degree in architecture at the Politecnico of Milan in 1972 and soon established his multidisciplinary design studio. His collaboration with Vitra began in 1985, and the Suita Sofa Collection (2010) represents the best of both parties – Citterio's Italian flair for lightness and elegance with Vitra's precision and workmanship. A collection made for how we live today, Suita lets you customize the piece to suit your needs. The 92" Sofa with Tray comes in 14 colors, across two types of upholstery finishes. The tray, which is available in two different finishes (Soft Light Pebble and Basic Dark Pebble), gives you a built-in shelf for books or a lamp, or you can pull up a chair and make it a workspace for your laptop. To which we say, Bravo! Made in Hungary.
