Inspired by oriental models, Gemina units are perfect for the dining room; they can be used separately or as a combination of two elements and are marked by the large-size base.‎ Designed by Antonio Citterio and made by Maxalto Italy in the APTA collection.

Founded in 1975 alongside B&B Italia, Maxalto soon developed a personal identity in the specialized production of artisan furniture. Striving for the highest standards of quality in terms of materials and workmanship is the objective of excellence inherent in the brand’s very name. Indeed, Maxalto derives from the Venetian dialect terms “massa alto”, which mean “the highest”.

The brand’s research into form looks to the past, with a revisitation of classical styles. Afra and Tobia Scarpa were its first interpreters. After a first important collaboration with Afra and Tobia Scarpa, in 1993 Maxalto heralded a new era with Antonio Citterio as its sole designer, introduced by the creation of his first collection in 1996. Antonio Citterio’s work centred initially on the early twentieth century style and subsequently drew inspiration from the French design of the interwar period, always finding new and effective ways of interpreting contemporary aesthetic trends.

For Antonio Citterio, Maxalto became a production workshop in which to research and manufacture a collection of “modern neo-classics”. Neo-classics because they are filtered, in terms of form and finishes, through the contemporary eyes of an Italian architect, and modern because they are designed to provide comfortable solutions for the home intended as a homogeneous, coherent environment in which furniture and objects interact fluidly.

We have two identical pieces available and in fact this is also the most logical number. Because Citterio designed this cabinet with the intention every complete decorated home needs at least 4 door cabinet in the dining room. Therefore in his design he offered 2 options, one cabinet with 4 doors and one set of two cabinets with each 2 doors to give more visual space to the cabinet.
