contemporary chair / upholstered / leather / aluminium
leather, aluminium, felt
by Antonio Citterio
“After 25 years of presenting products that use artisanal materials and processes, I felt the need to offer a “moulded” product, a chair with a fusion structure, thanks to a significant industrial investment by the company. At the same time, I wanted the “design” of this new product to be part of the Maxalto collection.
This chair can be used with the entire Maxalto collection, with the new tables, and also with the existing products. This product is absolutely contemporary, but recalls the memory of 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”.
Caratos is the new chair distinguished by the elegance of its basic, geometric frame, with closely calibrated thickness and detailed, made of graphite painted or amber painted die-cast aluminium. This chair is definitely light, not just because of its essential and linear design, but also for its low weight and easy handling. The seat and back use structural panels of plastic material placed on a polyurethane layer, then covered with leather.
