«After 25 years of presenting products that use artisanal materials and processes, I felt the need to offer a “moulded” piece, a chair with a fusion structure, thanks to a significant industrial investment by the company. At the same time, I wanted it be part of the Maxalto collection. Caratos is absolutely contemporary, but recalls some twentieth century objects, echoing the idea of bronze, through a “full” opaque finishing that absorbs light, and the great quality of the leather upholstery, giving it a “saddlery” look.» Antonio Citterio Designer: Antonio Citterio Typology: Armchairs Collection: Maxalto Year: 2018 Chairs in two versions, armchairs, ottomans and coffee tables are the new proposals that extend the Caratos series launched last year. These new items both reflect and strengthen the original designs’ essential features while softening them by introducing embracing shapes. The light die-cast graphite or amber painted aluminium structure is retained, while padded backrests contribute to the formation of the armrests, creating seating with no postural restrictions at all, encouraging conversation and relations between neighbours. The ottomans and coffee tables echo the design of the frames and are ideal complements to the seats to create conversation areas and social settings.
