MAX is a historic, iconic piece, in the catalogue for over thirty years. It is a sofa and a sculptural object, setting the tone of the domestic landscape with its original, sinuous forms. The light metal structure adapts to the curved design, supporting the two padded parts: the seat cushion and the long cylindrical back. Available with different finishes and covers, MAX was introduced with an original Op Art cover in black and white leather, which is still the image of the cult version of the product today.
The frame is made of satined, burnished, chromed, black chromed or champagne metal, padded with polyurethane, and has a protective fabric lining covering. The upholstery contains either removable fabric or non removable leather covers.
