• Powerful lines that combine modernity and tradition.

    Born and raised from the idea of ​​Piero Ambrogio Busnelli and Afra and Tobia Scarpa, Maxalto furnishings with the work of Antonio Citterio have come to compose a catalog of modern neo-classics. Modern because they are ideally linked to the visions of more libertarian Masters such as Jean-Michel Frank, compared to the excessively rigor of Le Corbusier or Mies van der Rohe: neo-classical because they are filtered into shapes and finishes through the contemporary gaze of an Italian architect. 

    Cultural roots are important, the humanistic imprint of the designer is essential to tackle the different scales with the same intelligence of drawing. While planning the construction of brand new buildings, infrastructures or entire skyscrapers, Antonio Citterio knows well that in the interiors, for many reasons, shapes and types of furniture change more and more slowly, without sensational fractures with the past. The house and its traditional environments - living rooms, dining rooms, bedrooms - return to being the core of social interaction, with the big difference that in the same spaces, thanks to a very strong technological acceleration, personal communication is possible. but also the electronic one: dialogue even at great distances, interact with sophisticated equipment, or simply rediscover the dimension of play, fun, conversation.
