Maxalto and Antonio Citterio

For Maxalto, the year 2017 was marked by two new important designs: the Astrum tables and the Caratos chairs, both by Antonio Citterio. The tables -available either round or rectangular-

are characterized by a tripod-style base in die-cast aluminum and a wooden or marble top. The chairs stand out for their basic, light design, emphasized by a die-cast aluminum frame.

"Moulded" product, die-cast structure

“After 25 years developing products rooted in artisan materials and processes,” says Antonio Citterio, “I felt the need to offer a ‘moulded’ product; namely, a chair with a die-cast structure, resulting from a significant industrial investment by the company. At the same time, I wanted the ‘design’ of this new product to be an integral part of the Maxalto collection.

Caratos chair

This chair can be used with the entire Maxalto collection — with the new tables, and also with the existing products. The product is absolutely contemporary, and yet it calls to mind typical twentieth-century objects. It echoes the idea of bronze, through a “full” opaque finish that absorbs light, and the use of high-quality leather upholstery gives it a distinct saddlery-style feel.

Astrum tables

The Astrum table also stands out in the Maxalto collection due to the introduction of a die-cast structure, making it a versatile system whose multiple configurations generate tables of different shapes and sizes.
