Maxalto: strong signs that combine modernity and tradition
Founded by Piero Ambrogio Busnelli, B&B Italia has been shaping the history of Italian design since it was founded in 1966, in Milan. This success is based on a permanent quest for the future needs of users. Its furniture collections feature elegant, unique, and timeless lines. It was in 1975 that the B&B Italia group launched the Maxalto brand in order to support its main activities. While B&B Italia creates home, office, and outdoors environments, Maxalto is a brand with its own immediate and precise identity; it focuses exclusively on the production of high profile furniture. Maxalto sofas, armchairs, tables, beds..., each of these objects is made with the greatest care.
Maxalto was then entrusted to the hands of Afra and Tobia Scarpa designers who not only sign all the collections until 1992, but also the current factory. The home furnishings designed by the duo were quickly established as a benchmark in Italian design. A collection of prestige furniture in 100% « made in Italy » wood. While the 70s-80s were the era of plastic and tastes shifted towards new experiments, Maxalto's choice to use wood was quite against expectations and very daring. Tobia Scarpa gives an imprint to the entire collection: objects made from prestigious materials such as wood, meticulously arranged « piece by piece », and whose finishes benefit from a unique manual know-how.
The search for iconic objects is combined with the desire to create an atmosphere with a modern style; a style that combines the geometric simplification of forms with the quality of extreme refinement which is almost invisible of the realization. All while recovering, or inventing artisanal production techniques. From there are born objects such as the Africa wooden chairs, the Artona collection, or the New Harmony collection.
In the 1990s, Antonio Citterio continued to forge the Maxalto house’s legend. The designer is the sole master craftsman. The guideline remains unchanged: excellence. His creations, including the Apta, Acro, and Lux collections, were inspired in particular by the French aesthetics of the interwar period. They are characterized by very high quality. Only noble materials are used: marble, leather, and wood in particular. The smallest details are finely worked. The result: Maxalto furniture is the perfect « contemporary classics », and the most luxurious places around the world do not resist this touch of refinement, including the Mandarin Oriental in Milan, the Aman Canal Grande in Venice, and Le Reserve in Paris...
