A per­fect de­sign bal­ance

Prestige Indonesia - Lifestyle - - LUXURY LIVING -

Com­fort, ver­sa­til­ity, dura­bil­ity, lux­ury and fash­ion. These are the five un­com­pro­mis­ing com­mit­ments Minotti brings to its de­signs. The com­pany’s phi­los­o­phy is to achieve a per­fect bal­ance of clas­sic Ital­ian and con­tem­po­rary de­sign ideas. Re­nato and Roberto Minotti, the sec­ond-gen­er­a­tion lead­ers of the fam­ily busi­ness, be­lieve the three most im­por­tant in­gre­di­ents of their prod­ucts are pro­por­tion, great de­sign and func­tion.

These el­e­ments can all be seen in Minotti’s lat­est col­lec­tion, which mar­ries cut­ting-edge con­cepts with state-of-the-art tech­nol­ogy. The col­lec­tion ex­hibits a cos­mopoli­tan spirit and hon­ours its strong ties with tra­di­tion. Along­side the study of pro­por­tions and the flow of lines, ma­jor em­pha­sis is placed on the func­tional use of each prod­uct.

With Rodolfo Dor­doni as its renowned de­signer, Minotti con­sis­tently achieves ex­cel­lence in terms of qual­ity and aes­thet­ics. Born in Mi­lan in 1954, Dor­doni grad­u­ated with a de­gree in ar­chi­tec­ture in 1979 from Mi­lan Polytech­nic. Af­ter earn­ing his de­gree, Dor­doni’s first job was to help de­sign a long line-up of prod­ucts. He soon be­came an artis­tic direc­tor at lead­ing Ital­ian and in­ter­na­tional com­pa­nies.

His work­ing part­ner­ship with Minotti as the com­pany’s Artis­tic Direc­tor dates back to 1997, over­see­ing the creation and devel­op­ment of all its col­lec­tions. In 2005, he set up Studio Dor­doni Ar­chitetti with Alessan­dro Acerbi and Luca Zani­boni, work­ing in the fields of ar­chi­tec­ture and in­te­rior de­sign for res­i­den­tial, com­mer­cial and ex­hi­bi­tion set­tings, and the de­sign and devel­op­ment of vil­las, pri­vate homes, in­dus­trial and com­mer­cial spa­ces, ex­hi­bi­tion stands, restau­rants and ho­tels.

De­vel­oped by Minotti Studio, the Leonard sofa, avail­able in linen, leather or in plush vel­vet with fine leather pip­ing de­tail with mem­ory foam cush­ion­ing, brings im­me­di­ate com­fort to the seat­ing sys­tem. Ben­son cof­fee ta­ble comes in glossy ebony with bronze or gold pol­ished trim, equipped with a mech­a­nism that al­lows it to turn 360 de­grees. The Col­lar sofa boasts an ex­clu­sive tech­nol­ogy de­vel­oped by Minotti Studio that makes it pos­si­ble to mod­ify the way the sofa is used by ad­just­ing the arm­rest and seat back po­si­tions.

Based on a re­fec­tory ta­ble de­sign, the Mor­gan ta­ble cre­ates a beau­ti­ful com­po­si­tion of strik­ing ma­te­ri­als and so­phis­ti­cated con­tem­po­rary de­sign. Its dis­tinc­tive char­ac­ter­is­tic is the sup­port that con­nects to the top by means of a cylin­dri­cal chrome spacer. With a round and rec­tan­gu­lar top and a ta­pered di­a­mond-shaped sec­tion that lends vigour to the base, Mor­gan speaks both mod­ern and tra­di­tional aes­thetic lan­guages.

Moie, one of the most recog­nised re­tail­ers of ex­cep­tional res­i­den­tial fur­nish­ings, light­ing and ac­ces­sories, will open a Minotti show­room in Ke­mang in 2015.
