Maldini: Breathe out with Cattelan Italia


We are well aware of that feeling you get when crossing the threshold of your house, that need to detach yourself from the outside world, to slow down, to breathe in… and breathe out, letting go of the day that just passed. Or those quiet mornings at home with the curtains open, to let the light in, reflecting on your skin and on the surfaces.


The 2022 collection by Cattelan Italia is designed to style a living space where balance and tranquility can be found. At the same time, home is conceived as the place where you can recharge with new energy and inspiration. It is a comfortable refuge to rediscover one’s emotional well-being. The collection presents a mix of soft and sinuous shapes, combined with contrasting geometric elements. Each design piece is enhanced by precious decorative details, delicately blending with design.

The absence of excesses leaves room to fully appreciate natural materials and manual finishes. Wide surfaces exhibit the natural look of the clay finishes and the fascinating veins of the precious woods and ceramics. In the 2022 collection, the marble-effect ceramics have become, without a doubt, a consolidated evidence of the brand’s original style.

The new 2022 collection comprises several types of furnishings and living spaces, from the outstanding sculptural dining tables, to numerous padded seatings, wooden sideboards and decorative complements such as lamps compositions, mirrors and soft carpets.

Two new variants of Marmi ceramic stand out among the newly added top finishes: the delicate and elegant Corcovado ceramic, which ranges between dusty and antique white tones; and the intense Kaindy ceramic, with fluid iridescent streaks in the green, blue and grey shades. In addition, the collection of glass tops evolves by adding several novelties, such as the new CrystalArt Marble decorative artistic prints and the bronze Moon glass top with an irregular and shiny surface. Finally, the new Pearlmetal finish is intended for the legs of chairs and tables, to make them bright and ethereal.

The Company will also present a monumental 4-meters table, designed for offices and public spaces. The Senator model stands out not only for its size, but also for its audacious style, expressed by the printed glass top with unique irregular shape. A wide range of comfortable chairs with or without armrests and swivelling chairs completes the setting, bringing comfort and well-being in the workplace.

Cattelan Italia presents welcoming and restoring spaces, infused with serenity and harmony. Their designs are conceived to create a bond between the space and the people who live in it, giving value to everyday gestures. This includes taking care of your well-being by surrounding yourself with beauty, energy and aesthetic balance. Let’s discover together the main design pieces of Cattelan Italia 2022 Collection.

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.

“When the material is sufficient in itself, without superstructures or additions, we have a pure and direct object that is already a finished product” explain the designers Pio and Tito Toso. 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. The family consists of two variants, the Maximtable with base in cement clay-spatulated and glass top, and Maxim Argile with a full clay handmade finish, in the natural shadesOslo, Cairoor Havana. This raw material is an impermeable sedimentary rock, a simple and gentle finish with a rough look. Its minimal style enhances the table’s organic look.

Maxim is a multipurpose design furniture, it is conceived for both indoor and outdoor living spaces, or for public spaces where the atmosphere is convivial and relaxed. Last but not least, the easily transportable packaging is an efficient logistical aspect. The base is divided into three pieces, reducing its total weight, as well as the space and resources necessary for transportation.
