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.
