Minotti 2018 Collection on show at IMM

ALEXANDER - Design Rodolfo Dordoni
Alexander is a seating system with different forms that can be combined with each other. Squared and curved elements can be used together in the same composition to create areas with an intimate and enveloping atmosphere.
The various modular elements allow for a wide range of arrangements, from L-shaped configurations characterised by the perfect geometry to linear interpretations that can evolve into sinuous profiles thanks to the original Alexander 'Drop' curved elements, such as the chaise-longue or the rounded corner modules.
The modules can have high or low backrests, or a combination of both, contributing to the versatility of the system. The pieces with higher backrests design alcove points, creating corners of intimacy, where to sit as in a nest of great comfort to read or watch TV. Instead, the elements with lower backrests are designed not to obstruct the view of the surrounding space.

A result of the careful research on the free-form, the Granville seating system focuses on an interplay of curves and of marked and light strokes. The modules, which vary in shape and size, interact with each other, while the armrests and backrests design relaxing areas suggesting different ways of seating.
Granville is available both in the traditional sofa option and as a more flexible solution of detached islands. Joinable together, the various elements come without fixed backs and armrests and are characterized by the original curved shape of the removable armrest. Developed not as a simple formal exercise, but as an opportunity to reflect on the sofa as a space to be lived and shared. The thickness of the back, together with the addition of a chaise-longue element and the detachable armrests are an invitation to live it in different ways, depending on the number of guests, their needs, or the time of the day.

TAPE - Design nendo
Signed by the eclectic Japanese studio Nendo, directed by Oki Sato, Tape is a collection of seats with a strong personality, characterised by the light silhouette, and consists of a comprehensive range of models: armchair with and without armrests, lounge armchair, bergère, two and three seater sofa and ottoman.
With his distinctive ironic approach, the designer overturns the traditional idea of the support feet that come out of the body of the seat, placing them externally to the structure.
Tape owes its name to the couture detail, conceived as a piece of ribbon that holds the Light Bronze-coloured metal feet.
A real tribute by Nendo to the sartorial experience of Minotti.
The soft curve of the shell, which designs the armrest and that accommodates the soft back cushion, highlights the pure and enveloping line of the armchair.

DAN - Design Christophe Delcourt
Taking inspiration from the minimalist movement, the Dan table combines Minotti's savoir-faire with Delcourt's attention to all the details of a project: from those evident to the eye, to those that can only be guessed.
The starting point for Dan is the circle, which Delcourt breaks down in the manner of a figurative artist to investigate its expressive possibilities.
The rounded and concave legs and the crosspiece that connects them define the base, enriching the overall design of the table. The contrasting finishes of the supporting legs - Licorice opaque-painted aluminium for the outside and bright Copper or Light Bronze-varnished for the inside - create an exciting game of lights, illuminating the area below the top, which is generally in the shade.

QUADRADO - Design Marcio Kogan / studio mk27
Inspired by the classic teak duckboard used in the yachting industry to facilitate the outflow of water, the Brazilian architect Marcio Kogan developed Quadrado, a modular system consisting of suspended square platforms that furnish outdoor spaces with exceptional lightness and flexibility.
The wooden bases welcome comfortable padded cushions with backrests in a special fibre woven with wicker-effect, available in Mud colour or plain Licorice colour. The sitting elements are interspersed with wooden surfaces that feature trays or candle holders, that can be arranged as desired with a surprising interlocking effect. A circular armchair joins this outdoor landscape characterized by its broad compositional freedom. The Japanese Metabolist architecture of the Fifties and the Sixties, defined by modular volumes, inspired Kogan to develop the Quadrado concept, an ideal system to furnish large open-air spaces, even of considerable sizes, where you can immerse yourself in nature and relax.
