LOS ANGELES, CA. June 1, 2015: Armen Sevada’s limited edition Maximillian Chair is the result of seven years of design innovation, and is constructed of mirror-finish stainless steel; available in a range of luxury fabrics that enhance the chair’s beauty and elegance.
Each piece is welded from stainless steel sheets that are cut with laser precision, and the chair’s [hollow] structure is meticulously designed like a building, with a solid cast appearance. The Maximillian Chair represents Sevada’s dedication, commitment and pursuit for perfection in proportion as well as craftsmanship.
“Fine-tuning a timeless chair that needed to be built like a watch was perhaps the hardest part of the process” said Armen Sevada. “My goal is to design objects that are timeless and complete in and of themselves. For me, this is the true test of sustainability: designs that are not governed by style or frivolous form. I wanted to create an object that for me embodied meticulous attention to design proportion and craftsmanship. I wanted to create something that could be as close to a “perfect” chair as possible.”
A limited quantity of 100 chairs will be available worldwide, each with a numbered plaque and certificate of authenticity, priced at $25,000. The chair is manufactured in Los Angeles, handcrafted meticulously by expert artisans. The chair is designed to withstand the effects of moisture, and will not rust or tarnish.
