Cattelan Italia Maxim
The design of Maxim table stems from the inseparable bond between its shape and its material. The base consists of three petals, molded from liquid cement. The fluid material adapts inside the mold, modeling itself dynamically, and then stiffens, concluding its transformation.
Maxim responds to the need for more sustainable design. It derives from manual workmanship and a cold moulding technique, which does not involve exploiting energy resources. The industrialised processes are only to support the high artisan component of the manual phases of pouring the liquid cement and the finishing. Just like a sculpture that emerges from the material in the hands of the master, observing the Maxim table reveals the effort and time taken to shape it.
