MAX Leather Sofa by Antonio Citterio for Flexform Italy 20th Century Design Icon


MAX by Antonio Cittorio is a sofa and a sculptural object, setting the tone of the domestic landscape with its original, sinuous forms. The light metal structure adapts to the curved design, supporting the two padded parts: the seat cushion and the long cylindrical back. MAX was introduced with an original Op Art cover in black and white leather, which is still the image of the cult version of the product today. Frame in chromed steel with polyurethane padding covered with best quality leather. Antonio Citterio: Antonio Citterio (born 1950, in Meda) is an Italian architect, furniture designer and industrial designer who lives and works in Milan.

Maxalto, a B&B Italia brand, is designed and coordinated entirely by Antonio Citterio. He has also been engaged in architectural works dealing with construction projects and interiors both in Italy and abroad. He holds lectures and conferences all over the world and his work has been extensively exhibited and published. He has won many prizes, among which the prestigious Compasso d’Oro in 1987 and 1994.
