2023 | Antonio Citterio
Forty years after the launch of the Max sofa, Antonio Citterio returns to one of his best-loved and most emblematic Flexform designs. While leaving some of its distinctive traits untouched, he revisits it with a more contemporary eye and expands its possibilities of use.
The new model carries the name Supermax and, compared to the Max sofa of 1983, has more generous proportions.
The clearly Rationalist-inspired sleek tubular metal structure was lowered a bit to encourage a more relaxed posture, while the size of the characteristic kidney-bean shaped seat cushion was completely redesigned and enhanced with additional padding for greater comfort.
The unmistakable cushioned cylindrical backrest is even more eye-catching in the version with two-tone upholstery.
If the Max sofa is ideally intended for use in waiting rooms, executive offices and lounges, the Supermax, with its deep low seat, aspires to a more central and multi-functional living room role, in both residential and hospitality settings.
Structure in tubular metal with burnished, glossy anthracite or in matt lacquer finish in the following colors: sand 610, sage green 630, brick red 620, white 160, black 900, terracotta 625 and forest green 635. Feet rest on tips made of thermoplastic material.
Backrest in metal with single-density polyurethane foam covered with a protective laminated fabric.
Seat in metal with variable density polyurethane foam insert and padding in sterilized goose down (Assopiuma certified, Gold label).
Optional cushions in sterilized goose down (Assopiuma certified, Gold label). Upon request, with upcharge.
Upholstery is removable in both the fabric and leather versions.
Upholstery piping tailored detail includes grosgrain piping that can be crafted in all the colors on the sample board.
