Italian brand Maxdesign launched a new collection of lightweight chairs by Swiss designer Christoph Jenni called “Appia.” The ergonomic collection of chairs and armchairs is named after the “Lancia Appia Sedan,” an Italian car introduced in 1953. The two designs share the same lines and use of materials, such as aluminum. The Appia chair has a die cast aluminum frame. Available with or without armrests and designed for use in both public and private spaces, the stackable Appia can be used both indoors and out. The seat and backrest are available in polypropylene, natural, white or black oak veneered plywood and a variety of leather and fabric options.
Founded over 15 years ago, Treviso, Italy-based manufacturer Maxdesign produces furniture with a contemporary, functional and user-friendly design combined with an emphasis on physical and visual lightness.
