Minotti, living with eternal style

Living Minotti, essential lines for timeless elegance

 

The new frontiers of living come through designing solutions that enhance the uniqueness of materials and a meticulous approach to tailoring. A philosophy that fully represents that of
Minotti
, a company of made-in-Italy excellence that has been making furniture since the 1950s with a refined, contemporary, detail-oriented design and timeless, exotic inspirations.

Characteristic of the latest collections by Minotti is the seamless reduction of the fine line between indoor and outdoor. In fact, the company, founded in 1948 in Meda, specializes precisely in embellishing the living room by combining artisanal savoir faire and innovation, and the designers who collaborate with it propose a new vision of the living area, with seating systems and furnishing elements that design the space among plays of lines, unexpected combinations of textures and richness of materials. Mixes that blend Italian craftsmanship with the backgrounds and aesthetics of designers from around the world, each capable of bringing their own style and philosophy into the Minotti world.

 

Roger, the multitasking sofa signed by Rodolfo Dordoni

Multifaceted, eclectic, always modern. Roger, the sofa designed by Rodolfo Dordoni for Minotti is like a site-specific installation, each time created to the measure of the space that hosts it according to the specific requests of its client: an open project, to be composed with imagination and customized with style. A sofa that responds to every layout requirement and places no limits on design, in which soft volumes, tailored tailoring and sophisticated upholstery are the protagonists.

The seating system consists of three elements: Roger Suite, with a seat cushion; Roger Spring, a one-piece seat with an internal pocketed spring insert that provides non-deformability to the seat, fully quilted on the surface; and Roger Spring Sofa with a reduced depth and no armrests.

The elements are designed with both high and low backrests, different types of armrests and the possibility of inserting support and storage elements, cantilevered at the back or in an end position, adjacent to the seat. A system that can give rise to an infinite number of declinations, both in residential and hospitality settings.

 

Patio, the outdoor sofa that mixes refined materials

Made as if it were a dynamic mosaic, formed from tiles of simple geometric shapes, the Patio seating system, designed by the Italian-Danish studio GamFratesi for Minotti, offers an unexpected mix of different materials: aluminum, wood, stone, rope.

Endowed with great compositional versatility, it can be reconfigured to suit the space available and the atmosphere to be created. In fact, the design of the sofa base structure allows the elements to have various declinations, creating conversation zones, relaxation and vis-à-vis situations, interspersing the seating with small tables and equipping them with ottomans and benches, a solution that allows them to meet the needs of both small metropolitan terraces and very generous outdoor spaces.

The multiple compositions are made all the more interesting by theskillful combination of selected materials: the extruded aluminum base painted matte in the two shades Écru and Testa di Moro are accompanied by steel backrests, covered in woven polypropylene yarn rope, according to a geometric design from the Scandinavian school.

 

Torii, made-in-Japan contaminations for seating suitable for indoor and outdoor use

Conceived to meet needs such as functionality and ergonomics, Torii, from Japanese designer Oki Sato, founder of Nendo Studio, plays with the rounding of volumes, lightness of thickness, and apparent Japanese-inspired formal simplicity. It has a perfect circle back with sophisticated visual lightness that accommodates the upholstered seat. A poetic and precious touch is what Sato gives to this collection that emphasizes the haute couture approach in Minotti’s tailoring. A seat that was designed from the beginning for indoor, then migrated to outdoor living and hospitality environments.

On the natural teak or dark brown stained mahogany base, held up by aluminum legs painted in a bronze-colored anti-touch gloss finish, rests the backrest’s painted tubular steel frame, woven in rope, in the two colors écru and dark brown, with a design inspired by Vienna straw, but with a wider mesh.

 

Superquadra, the bench with aerial volumes that draws on a Brazilian urban design

A name with a history that of Superquadra, the bench made by Studio mk27 for Minotti. Brazilian architect Marcio Kogan, author of the furniture series was inspired by Lúcio Costa’s pilot urban planning project with Oscar Niemeyer, conceived in 1956 for a residential neighborhood in Brasilia and divided into basic housing modules. The square volumes of the famous buildings suspended on agile pilotis are found reinterpreted to characterize storage furniture, benches, coffee tables, consoles and tables in the Superquadra family, a symbol of graphic essentiality.

The elements rest on a base with projecting legs, made of polished aluminum painted in Brandy color, which gives the products great aesthetic lightness. The understated design is balanced by a mix of quality materials-marble, wood, fabric, and leather-used for the countertops and seating, interpreted in a modern material key.

A line, that of Kogan for Minotti, that reaffirms the identity of a style that has its roots in the 1950s, winking at the past but always remaining perfectly contemporary.
