Malitte is a seating system, an ever-changing composition of five polyurethane blocks covered in a slightly elastic fabric.
A playful collection of colored interlocking organic shapes that can be assembled into a single sculpture, a “wall” dividing the environment with its formal and conceptual presence, which, when necessary, can instantly become a complete living room: a two-seater sofa, three seats and a pouf.
Malitte is included in the permanent collection of MoMA – the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.
Malitte is available also in a brand-new outdoor version, developed thanks to Frassinago technical consultancy. Malitte outdoor is made of polyurethane for outdoor use and it is available in two variants of covering with Ginostra and Quercia fabrics by MARIAFLORA, water-oil repellent and resistant to UVA rays.
