Minotti launches the new 2020 collection
Rodolfo Dordoni and Minotti Studio’s new 2020 Collection is a contemporary living project that blends the style of estmeed designers— nendo, Marcio Kogan / studio mk27, GamFratesi and Christophe Delcou.
A collection designed for indoor and open-air living spaces, the project embodies pure, geometric volumes and shapes with an architectural appeal that distinguish the new upholstered seating systems, seats and furnishings.
Four new seating systems are the protagonists of the Indoor Collection: Connery, Blazer, Mattia designed by Rodolfo Dordoni, Torii by nendo, in addition to armchairs, tables and sideboards.
The Connery modular seating system, designed by Rodolfo Dordoni, is inspired by Mid-Century American architecture. With a versatile composition, and a wide range of materials to mix and match, it stands out for its geometric rigour and the precision of its craftsmanship. The padded base can be upholstered in fabric or leather straps refined with the same technique used in fine leather luggage-crafting, a process that creates an original contrast with the softness of the seat.
Blazer by Rodolfo Dordoni is one of the projects that expresses the company’s most authentic artisanal approach. A carefully crafted modular seating system with pure volumes and a contemporary look, the unique matelassé effect that characterises the entire surface of the upholstered piece enhances its silhouette. The Mattia sofa and armchairs, also by Rodolfo Dordoni is a new take on a 1970s design concept taken from the Minotti Archive.
Torii, designed by nendo, is an airy system featuring compositional seats that play with the round volumes, slender lines and apparent formal simplicity of a well-developed design, with a base featuring structural details inspired by Japanese tradition. The slim backrest features a vertical quilting effect and piping runs along the perimeter of the cushioning, underlining the couture-like quality of the craftsmanship.
For the 2020 Collection, Marcio Kogan brings his architectural style and elegant proportions and details indoors, using them to characterise the Linha dining and coffee tables, the Boteco sideboards and the Daiki armchairs, with the latter also available in an outdoor version.
Designer duo GamFratesi offers a synthesis of Scandinavian culture and Italian tradition in a contemporary dialogue between in and out, with the spotlight on the Fynn and Fynn Saddle-Hide armchairs and lounge or dining little armchairs.
The Indoor collection is completed by the Lou 2020 sideboards designed by Christophe Delcourt. The family of sideboards designed in 2017 is now revisited, presenting a lighter version of the original design, and a look characterised by many brand-new elements: materials, colours and the structural detail of the metal legs.
The creative concept and aesthetic of the products in the new Indoor and Outdoor collections are enhanced by the 2020 Textile and Leather Collection. A textile collection exclusively created by the company, with the same care and know-how of a textile design firm, emphasising the refined combination of materials – fabrics, leather and saddle-hide – textures and patterns that characterise the new designs.
