The Maximillian Chair has been the passion project of Armen Sevada Gharabegian for seven years. The design of the chair was conceived in 2007 after the birth of his second son, Maximillian. The chair embodies the dedication, commitment, and love, towards a pursuit for perfection in proportion as well as craftsmanship. This was Armen Sevada’s gift to his son, Maximillian. The chair took years of perfecting both design and fabrication processes to achieve the high standard for what the chair represents.
Armen Sevada decided to make a limited number of chairs worldwide, each with a numbered plaque and signature. The Maximillian chair cannot be replicated in its original fabrication process. The chair was designed to be lightweight but have a solid cast appearance. This process took many years of design innovation and engineering.
The chair is manufactured in Los Angeles, handcrafted meticulously by expert artisans. It is constructed of 100% polished stainless steel, which is polished to a mirror finish. Stainless steel gives the object a durable but elegant beauty. The chair does not rust or tarnish and can be polished again if necessary. It was designed to withstand the effects of moisture if used on yachts, or estates near a body of water.
The Maximillian comes in a wide range of luxury fabrics that enhance the chair’s beauty and elegance. Custom fabrics of choice are also available, including hand-woven tapestry and hand-painted fabrics imported from Europe. “No designer achieves perfection in their lifetime but the unwaivering pursuit and effort is my gift to my son.“
