Designed by Vico Magistretti
Designed between 1995 and 1996, the Maui chair was the focal point of design research in the nineties and is the first of a new era of single mould seats in material that has no ribbing, tracery, metal supports or reinforcements to support the back. Kartell gave it new appeal style- and price-wise and brought it back in a fabric-covered version (Kvadrat and Trevira) – with and without casters and arms thus increasing its rich family of colours and functions, able to satisfy the specific needs in the contract sector as well as in the home. Its elegant lines and practicality make the Maui chair an extremely versatile design, just as contemporary today as yesterday. In order to better satisfy the needs of common areas, Maui Soft is also available in a personalised version with fabrics provided by the client, for orders of at least 10 items.
