KIDD is a collection of tables with a metal base and a special single leg that splits halfway down to generate three slender parallel legs with an almost zoomorphic look.
The round tops are in solid wood or enameled in the many available colors, from lilac to salmon, dove gray to pine green, adding a note of color to the space. One feature that makes Kidd suitable for public spaces is the possibility of finishing the top with special highly resistant scratchproof paint in the colors white and black. For those who like KIDD’s looks but prefer a product in a single material, the VIC table is similar but entirely made of wood.

Citterio designs A.B.C., Air, Beauty, Brenda, Carlotta, Cestone, Day-Time, Eden, Evergreen, Feel Good, Filiberto, Fly, Goodplace, Grandemare, Groundpiece, Guscio, Happy, Happy-Hour, Helen, Infinity, Kid, Lighpiece, Max, Peter, Phil, Plain, Softdream, Status, Timeless, Vic, Wilson, and Wing.
