Preview 2021: Maki


A thin sinuous structure creates a seamless harmony of lines and shapes that invites to take a seat and be embraced by its elegant lightness. MAKI is the new chair collection born from the collaboration between Cantarutti and Australian designer Adam Cornish.


An artful design concept that marries aesthetics with function. The fluid lines of MAKI look like the result of a natural expression, yet they are developed through an accurate research of materials and shapes that make it a unique stacking chair.


The new MAKI chair is fruit of a design meant at simplifying this everyday object to only the essential, while giving it a delicate and refined character through a distinct silhouette that enables efficient vertical stacking.
