Where the corners seem designed to accommodate the body, geometry becomes comfort with Apollo.
Apollo is a new range of upholstered furniture designed for Maxalto by Antonio Citterio. The collection is composed of three sofa types, united by pleasantly curved but rigorous lines, which distinguishes each element and creates a harmony between curves and linear forms.
In its fluid shape, where the corners seem designed to accommodate the body, geometry becomes comfort with Apollo. At first glance, the upholstery of the seat and cushions, the backrest height, the lack of feet, and the generous seat depth are the elements that make Apollo welcoming and appealing.
The fabric covers are embellished with a raised stitch detail, while for the leather covers sport a sophisticated envelope stitching. With its clear, easy-to-understand shape Apollo stands out.
By seeking the highest quality standards in materials and processing methods, Maxalto aims at design par excellence. Even in the name “massa alto,” which in Venetian dialect means “the highest.”
A complete range of “new classic” furnishings that stand apart for the excellent quality workmanship, precious materials and refined details. Maxalto declares the value of “made in Italy” with unmistakable timeless elegance.
