Glossy Dining Table by Kartell designed by Antonio Citterio and Oliver Low
A versatile designer table that is right at home in the contemporary home. The lightweight, interwoven steel structure supports a MDF polyester lacquered top. Available in 3 sizes, the Kartell Glossy Table departs from the traditional table structure, echoing the Eames wire tables and chairs.
Antonio Citterio Antonio Citterio was born in Meda in 1950. He graduated in architecture from Milan Polytechnic and opened his studio in 1972 where he started his architectural and interior design business.

Among his most significant works: the restyling of a block in the historical centre of Seregno, Esprit headquarters in Amsterdam, Antwerp and Milan, industrial plants for Vitra, in Germany, and for Antonio Fusco, in Milan. In 1999 Antonio Citterio and Partners was founded by Citterio and Patricia Viel, a multidisciplinary practice for architectural design, industrial design and graphics.
