SPENCER | Bed
A family of two- and three-seat sofas, with bench, armchair and chaise-longue, a pure expression of current design, casts a respectful eye to the past and draws on some ideas that recall popular shapes from the Sixties and Seventies. Spencer’s surprisingly unconventional lines give it a look that is light and compact. Its originality lies in the precision of its structure and the perfectly balanced proportions, backed by superlative construction techniques. The seat back is an enveloping foam shell that enfolds soft down cushions, while the base of the sofa features a system of springs that offers supple support to the goose down-filled seat cushions. The sofa is raised off the floor with functional feet in Pewter colored molded aluminum, crafted from an exclusive design by the Minotti Studio. Every detail of Spencer’s construction is designed to allow one to sit up straight and still be comfortable and relaxed. Sofas, armchairs, and chaise-longues are available in the dual version with or without armrests. The latter version makes it easy to access side tables placed at the end of the sofa or to position one or more seating elements next to each other in a straight line. Spencer’s true calling is to be a seating system with a split personality, suited for furnishing homes and public spaces with style and personality, thanks to its limited size and fresh lines.
The Spencer bed, sophisticated and sinuous, has soft lines that meld aesthetics and ergonomics, the principles underlying the concept that led to the seating system of the same name. Completely covered in fabric or leather, the bed frame is entirely free of sharp corners and also has an enveloping headboard - a soft shell made even more inviting by a plush quilt - that invites sleep by creating a pleasurable sensation of intimacy and shelter. The elegant design epitomizes a bed that offers the utmost in comfort and, thanks to the shape of the headboard, supports the correct posture for reading. The bed rests on avant-garde feet in Pewter colored die-cast aluminum that are set at 45° angle back from the edges of the bed in order to allow walking around it while avoiding unpleasant encounters with undesirable objects. The Spencer bed has a universal personality that allows it to be confidently outfitted in any of the fabrics and leathers in the Minotti collection and to be integrated with style and discretion in any bedroom setting.
