Minotti is an Italian company with a solid reputation at an international level as an excellent expression of “Made in Italy” in the field of contemporary furniture design and ambassador of a classic-modern lifestyle in the residential and hospitality segments. The company was established in 1948 and born out of the intuition of Alberto Minotti. The small scale artisan workshop grew quickly and, starting from the Sixties, became more industrialized in character and size. The next step was taken by Renato and Roberto Minotti, who, after the premature death of their father in 1991, took over the reins of the company and began a process of growth and expansion into the international markets. Responsible for the corporate strategy, since 1998 they have shared their creative vision and aesthetic keyprinciples with the architect Rodolfo Dordoni, who has been assigned the strategic role of coordinator of all the company collections. Central to the Minotti identity is the full expression of the “Made in Italy” concept, which today permanently melds tradition and innovation: the skills of talented artisan are employed to finish a product created by modern technologies, while the intelligence of the hands balances industrial precision with sensitivity and emotion. This high degree of know-how is constantly improved by the intensive research on materials and technological solutions thus enhancing the value of impeccable details. The commitment to excellence involves all the company. Over the years the company has conceived a specific “Minotti code”, that has become a constant feature of every collection, always following the key principle of “innovation in the spirit of continuity”. Deeply rooted in the company's DNA, it is linked to the principles of aesthetic understatement, timeless elegance, continuity in the sign of tradition, artisan savoir-faire with great attention to sartorial details. A key role in this process is played by Minotti Studio, heart and mind of the company, that encapsulates all the skills of the creative supply chain, from architecture to interior design, from prototyping to engineering, from graphics to visual, from marketing to communication. Minotti Studio gives shape to designers' ideas and projects, channeling their creative energies based on different cultural roots, in the development of indoor and outdoor collections for the residential and hospitality segments. These collections reflect the Minotti identity as well as the evolution of living habits. The story of the family is moving forward. The same dedication and long-term vision, that has marked the success of the company over its seventy years, has also been shared by the third generation: in the forefront, Alessio, Alessandro and Susanna who are facing the challenges of the third millennium, of the digital and multicultural world. Minotti’s international vision has resulted in a widespread presence in 63 countries, through a network of 34 flagship stores and over 400 qualified dealers around the world, where people can fully experience the international refined lifestyle of the company.
The stylistic characteristics and aesthetic principles of Rodolfo Dordoni have become a fundamental part of the Minotti style, the essence of which is masterfully displayed at the Minotti showroom in Meda, also designed by Studio Dordoni Architects. The company's headquarters in Meda in turn, build on a former industrial area, was enlarged in order to obtain an exhibition space of 1,000 square meters. The building itself was inspired by the style of a contemporary villa, with terraces and a roof garden, large windows and sober concrete surfaces.
