Minotti Living, essential lines for timeless elegance
The new frontiers of living pass through the design of solutions that enhance the uniqueness of the materials and the meticulous approach to tailoring. A philosophy that fully represents that of Minotti, a company of excellence in Made in Italy that since the 1950s has been making furniture with a refined, contemporary design, attentive to detail and with exotic and timeless inspirations.
Characteristic of the latest collections by Minotti is the reduction of the thin border between indoor and outdoor, without interruption. In fact, the company, born in 1948 in Meda, specializes precisely in embellishing the living room by combining artisan know how 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 between plays of lines, unexpected combinations of textures and richness of materials. Mixes that blend Italian craftsmanship with the backgrounds and aesthetics of designers from all over the world, each capable of bringing their own style and philosophy into the Minotti world.
Roger, the multitasking sofa designed by Rodolfo Dordoni
Multifaceted, diverse, always modern. Roger, the sofa designed by Rodolfo Dordoni for Minotti is like a site-specific installation, each time created to measure the space that hosts it according to the specific requests of its client: an open project, to be composed with imagination and to be personalized with style. A sofa that responds to every layout need and that sets no limits to the design, in which soft volumes, tailored tailoring and sophisticated upholstery are the protagonists.
The seating system is made up of three elements: Roger Suite, with seat cushion, Roger Spring, a one-piece seat with an internal pocket spring insert that guarantees the non-deformability of the seat, completely quilted on the surface and Roger Spring Sofà with a reduced depth and without armrests.
The elements are designed with both high and low backrests, different types of armrests and the possibility of inserting support and containment elements, cantilevered on the back or in an end position, adjacent to the seat. A system that can give life to an infinite number of variations, both in the residential and hospitality sectors.
Patio, the outdoor sofa that mixes refined materials
Made as if it were a dynamic mosaic, made up of 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.
Equipped with great compositional versatility, it can be reconfigured according to the space available and the atmosphere you want to create. In fact, the design of the structure of the sofa base allows the elements to have various declinations, creating conversation areas, relaxation and face-to-face situations, interspersing the seats with tables and equipping them with poufs and benches, a solution that allows you to respond to both needs. of metropolitan terraces of contained dimensions, both of very generous outdoor spaces.
The multiple compositions are made even more interesting by the skilful combination of the selected materials: the base in extruded aluminum matt painted in the two shades Ecru and Testa di Moro are accompanied by steel backrests, covered in woven rope in polypropylene yarn, according to a geometric design of Scandinavian school.
Torii, fusions made in Japan for the seat suitable for indoor and outdoor
Conceived to meet needs such as functionality and ergonomics, Torii, by the Japanese designer Oki Sato, founder of the Nendo studio, plays with the rounded volumes, the lightness of the thicknesses and the apparent formal simplicity of Japanese inspiration. It has a perfect circle backrest, with a sophisticated visual lightness that welcomes the padded 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 originally designed for indoor, and then drifted to outdoor living and hospitality environments.
On the base in natural teak or dark brown-stained mahogany, supported by aluminum legs painted in a glossy bronze-colored anti-touch finish, rests the tubular steel structure painted in the backrest, woven with rope, in the two colors ecru and dark brown , with a design inspired by Vienna straw, but with a larger knit.
Superquadra, the bench with aerial volumes that refers to a Brazilian urban project
A name that has a history that of Superquadra, the bench created by Studio mk27 for Minotti. The Brazilian architect Marcio Kogan, author of the series of furnishing elements, was inspired by the pilot urban project by Lúcio Costa 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 reinterpreted to characterize storage units, benches, coffee tables, consoles and tables of the Superquadra family, a symbol of graphic essentiality.
The elements rest on a base with overlapping legs, in shiny Brandy-colored aluminum, which gives the products great aesthetic lightness. The sober design is balanced by a mix of quality materials - marble, wood, fabric and leather - used for the support and seat surfaces, interpreted in a modern material key.
A line, that of Kogan for Minotti, which acknowledges the identity of a style that has its roots in the 1950s, with a nod to the past but always remaining perfectly contemporary.
