The Minotti

With the opening of the new Minotti Monobrand Melbourne store, dedece again sets the standard for those seeking style and sophistication in the Australian metropolis and further strengthens Minotti’s presence in a rapidly-expanding market that has consistently shown its appreciation for the timeless style and quality of Minotti products.

For the first event, dedece and Minotti launched the new book Portraits of Places in Australia by hosting a special lunch for those A & D who were featured in the book.

2018 marks many reasons for Dedece to celebrate – it is the 40th year that Dedece has been in business, whilst Minotti is celebrating a truly impressive 70 years in business and 20 years that esteemed architect and furniture designer Rodolfo Dordoni has been Minotti’s creative director.

Dedece was thrilled to celebrate the official opening of the new Minotti mono brand showroom to the Melbourne A & D community and clients on a particularly very cold winter’s night in late June.

The showroom has a few pieces from Minotti’s newest 2018 collection – flown in from Milan Salone 2018.

Thanks to the long-standing partnership between the Minotti and Engelen families – the latter at the helm of Dedece for 40 years – Melbourne welcomes the new home of the Minotti monobrand.

Launched at the Russell Street address in 2006, the store now has an exciting new location in Dale Street, Cremorne – the “leading edge” design furniture destination precinct.

This year, Minotti enters its 20th year collaborating with it’s creative design director, Rodolfo Dordoni.

The long-term partnership is built on a deep connection between Dordoni and the Minotti brothers ( Renato and Roberto ) grounded in a shared culture, background, and taste.

Minotti translates the designer’s creative vision and concepts into tangible objects and collections that have come to represent the brand’s stylish identity.

Tom Dixon = A No Show @ Salone Milan 2018

The undisputed protagonist of Fuorisalone will be notably absent this year.

After 27 years of uninterrupted presence at the Milano Design Week, and every single time as the highlight of Fuorisalone in a crescendo of installations and events on an ever larger scale, appeal and success, this year, Tom, the rebellious and unpredictable hero of British design, surprises us again, but in another, truly unexpected, way – this time by NOT presenting his new collections in Milan.

Instead Tom will place all his bets on his new London Headquarters and his World Tour- which he has already embarked upon

Alexi Freeman & Studio Twocan designed an installation at dedece for Melbourne Fashion Festival that references the waxing and waning cycle of the moon.

The installation is made from copper plated metal chain, with the colour and materiality sitting cohesively in proximity to products on the dedece showroom floor.

Minotti 2012 / Collection launch @ dedece Melbourne

Minotti 2012 / Collection launch @ dedece Melbourne

The Minotti 2012/Collection was presented at dedece’s Melbourne showroom in December, 2012

The 2012/Collection admirably marries innovation and consistency, both distinguishing features of the Minotti brand.

The collection is striking in its unconventional use of a colour palette, that is both elegant and sophisticated, adding depth to shapely lines.
