MAP is Relaunched at Schiavello

Leading Australian furniture manufacturer, MAP, reboots their design brand with a new collection available at Schiavello.

One of Australia’s oldest manufacturing companies, Schiavello, has relaunched MAP: Makers of Australian Products. With the continuing creative direction from founder Chris Connell, the brand aims to draw from the furniture manufacturer’s deep-rooted understanding of the Australian and international design market.

The latest collection emphasises Schiavello’s continual effort to remain at the forefront of innovative production technologies.

The range of pieces come together in synergy to explore the relationship between object and place, and how each interacts with and establishes the meaning of one another.

The collection features a broad and aesthetically diverse range of pieces to reflect the dynamism of modern living, including; the Lean storage units, a flexible assortment of sleek compartments able to adapt to the spatial dimensions of any space; the bold yet seemingly weightless Plane tables, available in a mix of zesty citrus colours; the classic, timber-oriented Rib chair and barstool; the two-toned collection of Split tables available in an expansive range of heights and widths to suit any office or home setting; as well as the linear and spatially open Wire bar stool, chair and lounge.

Schiavello hopes that the relaunch of the MAP brand will help bolster Australia’s local design community; offering their manufacturing know-how to realise the imaginative concepts of the nation’s emerging designers.
