Charles Carré Divani
Charles Carré Divani 1

Description

In the spirit of revamping the icons of our heritage collection, the Charles family is now adorned with a carré pattern that is carefully and wisely crafted with a very refined technique. The particular checkered workmanship of the seat cushion cover is particularly elaborate: the cutting of the upper surface of the carré cushions is carried out for each single square which is numbered during the cutting phase for identification and reassembled during the sewing phase where it is coupled with a textile ribbon (in the case of fabric) or with a leather profile (in the case of leather upholstery) first on the short sides (checkered/ribbon/checkered) and then on the long sides.

In 2000, with Patricia Viel, he founded a practice for architecture and interior design, developing international complex long-term projects, at all scales and in synergy with a qualified network of specialist consultants. The studio has today taken the name of "Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel". Antonio Citterio currently works in the industrial design sector with numerous Italian and foreign companies. In 1987 and in 1994 he was awarded the Compasso d’Oro-ADI. From 2006 to 2016 he has been professor of Architectural Design at the Mendrisio Academy of Architecture (Switzerland).
