The Torii modular seats play with round edged volumes, thin profiles and simplicity. The metal structure of the legs is Japanese design firm Nendo’s nod to the image of the “torii”, the entrance gate to Shinto shrines in Japan. With an interlocking game, the horizontal elements are laid on the vertical supports, ensuring a sophisticated visual lightness that accommodates the padded volume. The Torii family includes sofas, armchairs, ottomans and more, which are ideal for the living area.
Inoda+Sveje design is named after the city of trees, Sendai. This family of seats consists of a small sofa, an armchair, a lounge armchair and more. The possibility of having the armchair and the lounge armchair in the 360° swivel version makes the Sendai seats particularly comfortable for both residential and hospitality environments. The compact and well-proportioned silhouette of both the seats make them very versatile in dining and lounge settings.
Scandinavian values meet Italian tradition in Fynn, a project created by combining fine cabinet-making and sophisticated upholstering with fabric or saddle-hide. The signature element of the seats is the armrest, elongated and slightly curved, rounded and smooth to the touch, and 100% handmade. The family comprises armchairs, lounge and dining little armchairs, benches, footstools and coffee tables of different sizes. The Fynn armchair and little armchairs feature an ultra-lightweight aesthetic with a simple structure in ash wood with liquorice colour stained finish. Fynn hosts a padded seat and backrest cushion, designed as a single element.
Pilotis designed by the late Rodolfo Dordoni is a console table that adds character to any space thanks to the sculptural energy of its Brutalist-inspired design. The cylindrical polished steel frame of the base is grafted into a hollow half-cylinder with the same finish, and arranged horizontally. A brushed licorice lacquered ash volume serves as the top. This detail is also clearly visible from the side elevation in which the materiality of the wood stands out.
BRADY coffee table
Another Rodolfo Dordoni design for Minotti is Brady – a family of coffee tables ranging from the classic 30cm height to an innovative 51 cm high version. A rounded, lenticular-shaped, scratch-proof, matt lacquered top support envelops the lithic tops, concealing their thickness and thus lightening their formal aesthetic.
