With the aim to define “a new approach to [the] living space”, Minotti’s 2016 furniture collection enables designers, developers and homeowners to create holistic, modern and relaxing indoor and outdoor living environments effortlessly. Drawing inspiration from various cultures, the versatile collection includes armchairs, chairs, coffee tables, tables, and storage elements that can be freely mixed and matched to impart comfort and elegance to domestic or commercial spaces. While retaining some favoured motifs from previous collections, the 2016 collection, put together by artistic director Rodolfo Dordoni, defines a more welcoming and intimate relationship with nature. We take a look at some of the standout pieces by Rodolfo Dordoni Design.

Creed Seating Collection

Expressing age-old artisanal mastery, the Creed family features a distinct palette with light bronze-painted finishes, wooden legs and metal details. Characterised by carefully calculated proportions, pieces of the collection have been cleverly designed to fulfill many functions and settings, adapting to various floor plans. Thanks to sleek and soft impressive curves, the Lounge sofa is ideal as a centrepiece in any living space without seeming ostentatious. The Small armchair, offered in a fixed or swivel base, will brighten up compact or dead corners. Designers can also select the Wood Armchair, Large Armchair, Little Armchair or Dining Chair for other areas of the home to ensure a cohesive look throughout.

Freeman Seating System

The Freeman seating system comprises of three ranges, the Duvet, Tailor and Lounge. Characterised by modern boxy forms, smooth lines and soft cushions, the Duvet mimics the feeling of a “warm embrace” to induce a sense of relaxation. It can be outfitted with a headrest to promote good posture, be it for reading or watching television. The Freeman Tailor offers dynamic one-piece seating islands with decorative and uniform stitching details that enhance its graphical and contemporary identity while referencing Minotti’s fine-tailoring expertise. The pieces are put together with a strip of eco-leather and double-stitched motif – a complex construction that lends depth and originality. Designers can marry these pieces to create “multi-tasking compositions” catered to the various moments in everyday life, such as entertaining friends or enjoying family time.

Indiana Outdoor Collection

The Indiana line consists of sofas, end elements, chaise-loungers, ottomans and coffee tables for outdoor usage. The backrest features a signature weave that imparts softness to the overall sculptural form materialised by solid iroko – a warm, versatile and durable hardwood. Combined with intricate details and other materials such as aluminium base caps and new fabrics from Minotti’s outdoor textile collection, the Indiana inspires a sense of lightness in outdoor spaces while resisting the elements for long-term usage.

Virginia Outdoor Collection

Minotti defines its own balance between traditional and modern design with the Virginia outdoor family, which continues the company’s material exploration of solid iroko wood in a minimal structure. Soft back and seat cushions with generous padding and new upholstery textiles all come together to create maximum comfort. Featuring compact proportions, the sofa, armchair and ottoman will fit into smaller terraces or verandas, and are ideal for residential or hospitality projects.

Minotti is distributed solely through Minotti Singapore by Marquis Interiors.
