Exquisite Italian elegance

Harmony and balance amidst iconic items and revisited modern furnishings.
The collection, launched in 1975 and coordinated today by Antonio Citterio, expresses the company's unique style and sophisticated interiors.
Maxalto Styles and collections
“I followed a theme when I designed the Maxalto collection, precisely the meaning of the bourgeois room and of the past century's tradition,” says Antonio Citterio. “Each piece tells of its function, celebrating a solid and reassuring ritual. The desk is a desk and nothing more, and its place is that of concentration.“
Research on modern furnishings conducted by Antonio Citterio leans towards shapes that recall the romanticism of French design between the two world wars when the functional features of modern living rooms conceived by Le Corbusier and Marcel Breuer were mellowed by leading Art Décor interior designers, such as Adnet, Mallet-Stevens or Jean Michel Frank. The scope is clear, and lies in harmonising shapes and materials to create a series of objects placed in a consistent overall setting. Rather than iconic objects, they have now become actual interiors. Bookcases, chest of drawers, chairs and armchairs, the excellent quality of handcrafted details is ensured for every element, besides the use of precious wood types.
The is how Maxalto's stylistic traits are born, the landmark brand for interior décor.

Everything has its own place

Five distinct collections that are mutually consistent
and designed to be coordinated.
For enthusiasts of contemporary design centred on tradition.
Without renouncing suggestive sophisticated ideas.

Apta Collection

When furnishings are the protagonists of a house

Sofas, chairs and armchairs are the protagonists of a classical setting revisited in a contemporary key. Research expressed in shapes and fabrics to create harmonies of tones and textures. The extensive proposal of storage units and bookcases presents furnishings that feature rigorous design, whose balance of volumes and proportions conveys an unmistakeable stylistic accent.

AC Collection

A reinterpretation of the past underpinned by a powerful personality

With precious and precisely processed materials, AC collection features original solutions with basic lines. Furnishings that present the rigorous and seductive qualities of modernity. From the dining room to the library, from the living room to the bedrooms, elements are functional, perfectly dosed and refined. Exclusive complements, even in the utmost care for details, which enhance interiors with a decided personality. Extensive choice of wood types available in tones ranging from the palest to the warmest, reaching a climax with black.

Simplice Collection

Precious finishes and details for interiors that feature a sophisticated spirit

Tables, consoles, writing-desks and small tables are enhanced by bold lines and a light frame. Precious finishes for tops, reflecting or soft lacquers for surfaces. Including marble. Evergreen seats redesign classical relaxation with linear and corner sofas and large high comfort chaise longue terminal elements. Sophisticated details that enhance items with precious finishes, such as capitonné seams and visible “haute couture” seams. Velvet profiles add a touch of glamour, and leather sofas preserve the charm of a timeless material.

Lux Collection

Lighting accents create unexpected effects

Kitchen cupboards, sideboards and living room furniture elegantly meet the need for space in the living room, entrance and study with hinge doors, flap doors or matching drawers. Surface treatment with “shellac” finish makes them special, creating precious light effects that enlarge space and brighten the room. Oriental overtones in the curved lines for armchairs, chairs, stools and tray tables.

Acro Collection

Bold items that endow the house with a strong personality

A few significant items, namely chairs, kitchen cupboards, sideboards, tables and a deep bookcase. The use of wood is favoured by recovering handcrafting procedures. Hence the creation of sculptural furnishings that are virtually extemporaneous with a perfect harmony of hues and details.
