Max Work Table by Kartell designed by Ferruccio Laviani
This sturdy table excels in home offices or work studios. The gentle, hourglass shape allows Max to fit side-by-side with other home office furnishings. It can stand alone as a single work station or be used in unison with desks. The match-up combinations are easy and quick, due to its lightness and mobility, as demonstrated by the leg structures.
Three metal tubes in chromed steel join at the base to form casters. The casters are also equipped with auto-lock brakes for added stability. The Max Table is also available with glides. It is easy to combine with other items of the Kartell office, thanks to the neutral design of Max and the versatile colors in which it is offered.
