Minotti’s 2014 collection exhibits a cosmopolitan spirit, eschews mass production, and honors its strong ties with tradition.
It unfolds through an authentic dialog between formal elegance inspired by the history of Italian design, the value of craftsmanship, the rigor of industrial design and the insight to capture contemporary trends.
Tangible values like quality, style and comfort speak a timeless, universal language and converge in a collection that portrays perfect balance between product design, decorative taste and sophisticated interior decor, all clearly tracing back to the brand’s identity.
The Aston ( indoor – outdoor ) collection below epitomises Minotti’s product refinements to the fullest
Collar is a seating system that melds the rationality of design with function, placing technology at the service of the individual.
A fusion of formal and aesthetic contents – the well-balanced proportions and symmetry of the depth of the armrest and the seat back – and the functionality of the sofa.
Collar reveals an unexpected personality, able to transform its appearance based on the various positions in which the armrest and seat back are placed.
A dynamic seating system backed by exclusive technology developed by minotti studio, which makes it possible to adjust the support angle of the cushions and modify the performance of the sofa depending on how it is being used.
A project that originated from a rational thought: a seating system attained through the clustering of geometric upholstered pieces, soft as cushions, outlined with a profile trim that traces their silhouette and resting on an elegant aluminum base.
A clear-cut concept that translates to a linear design where Leonard sits in perfect balance between tradition and modernity, an expression of the company’s own aesthetic language.
The essence of Leonard is visible in the special care taken with the construction features: a series of details that emphasize its commanding character.
A vast collection of versatile tables, Kirk comes in an array of finishes, shapes and sizes. Featuring soft lines and rounded corners, these tables are designed to pair seamlessly with the new Leonard and collar seating systems.
The discrete elegance of Kirk is punctuated by the amazing materials it comes in.
A generous number of combinations between the base – in wood or metal – and the table tops – in glossy lacquer sand, mud and ebony finish, black pâte de verre, transparent bronze glass and brown damascus marble – are available.
Aston and Aston “cord” outdoor display the same design roots and aesthetic language.
These products, whose compact shape and graceful lines are the ideal inspiration for innovative interior design projects, bring continuity and consistency of style to interior and exterior settings alike.
The following pages feature a project for the design of public areas in a hotel, with a lounge bar furnished with pieces from the Aston series: sofas, armchairs and lounge chairs paired with the Kirk “cross” occasional tables.
As the gaze moves from indoors to outside, it finds the same casual elegance that distinguishes the lounge area in the furnishings that complement the poolside area.
Here the Alison “dark brown” outdoor sofa is right at home, along with the Klasen benches.
Partition walls made from wood define the seating area, furnished with sofa, armchairs and pouf from the Aston “cord” outdoor series.
The sophisticated elegance that distinguishes the interior decor designs in the 2014 collection is inherent to the outdoor series and highlights the continuity and consistency of the brand’s own style.
An exclusive new finish – a rich shade of brown – lends an even more sophisticated edge to the Alison “dark brown” outdoor seating system and facilitates the creation of elegant pairings with the new fabrics in the Lifescape 02 collection, bringing a stylishly modern note to the outdoor series, as well.
The Alison “dark brown” outdoor sofa is raised off the ground on 3,5 cm high anodized aluminum blocks, groove-mounted and stained the same color as the wood, to prevent direct contact with the paving and thus protect the frame from moisture.
A fluid line engendered by a soft, continuous stroke – inspiration for the design of the Glover armchair was spawned by the idea of creating an armchair that is as elegant as comfortable.
The sides feature an unusual juncture between the enveloping seat back and the armrest, emphasized by elegant studs in pewter-color painted metal.
The unexpected opening in the seat back lets the seat cushion show through, lending a visual sense of lightness to the armchair.
A combination that spells warmth and comfort – an enveloping cushioned shell rests on the elegant lathe – turned solid wood base with tobacco finish.
Lending the Coley-soft armchair a look sure to become a classic and one that is at home in any setting .
The high back soft cushioning and thoughtfully designed seat angle make Coley – soft an especially comfortable armchair
While the swivel base in pewter – colour metal adds a light, modern touch
A subtle diamond motif lends an added dimension to the Ashley pouf and defines its exquisite craftsmanship while the elegant zippers in matte gold emphasize its soft lines.
Ashley is available in three different sizes and is an accessory that, thanks to its refined construction and ease of use, is perfect in any setting.
An overlapping of shapes and skillful combination of luxury materials – these are Benson’s distinctive traits.
Its sculpted form is enhanced by the substance of wood and the shine of metal.
The Benson occasional table sits right on the floor and comes in two different sizes that complement its intended use.
The coffee table measures 120×95 cm and is composed of an elliptical base and a raised circular top equipped with a mechanism that allows it to turn 360 degrees and makes the table top extendable towards the sofa.
The studied simplicity of lines complements the choice of luxurious materials like issogne marble, with its typical shades of green, used for the beveled edge table top that rests on an elegant bronze-painted metal base with a cross intersection at floor level.
Joy is an accent table crafted to tastefully integrate with all the sofas and armchairs in the new collection, and is available in round – h55 cm – or square – h41 cm – format.
Morgan is based on the traditional refectory table, very popular in Italy, that can be traced back to a concept of simplicity and sleek lines.
Morgan reinterprets the style in a more contemporary key through a series of sophisticated design solutions and the pairing of striking luxury materials.
The supports are made of bronze metal sheet and feature a tapered diamond-shaped section that lends vigor to the base, while the top, available in tobacco stained flamed oak, mocha oak and caramel glossy lacquer finish, is also characterized by a distinctive flared edge.
The supports connect to the top by means of a cylindrical chrome spacer.
Pure and stylized shapes are accentuated by the combination of materials that creates a sophisticated contrast between the solidity of the wood and the glossy shine of the lacquered finish.
The refined workmanship calls to mind the skilled techniques that define the art of fine cabinet making, where special care was taken in crafting the interior, with painstaking design of every detail based on how it would be used.
The Lang storage units, featuring a modern, sleek design aesthetic provide a variety of configurations to suit the most diverse needs.
Many options exist for integrating Lang into various settings – from dining room sideboard, paired with the Morgan table, to living room sideboard as a room divider, to bar cabinet for the conversation area, or console for the lobby.
Bedford puts a contemporary spin on the classic bed frame, blending elegantly tailored workmanship with construction based on features that contribute to a quality sleep experience.
The base of the bed is a divan that, thanks to a vast number of pocketed springs, ensures an optimal level of comfort and improved quality of night rest.
The headboard is generously padded and features a saddle-hide insert set off by elegant zippers that, in addition to their aesthetic appeal, facilitate removal of the headboard material.
The fabric front features a subtle quilt motif.
The refined elegance that distinguishes the Bedford bed also inspired a collection of new accessories.
The pure linen sheet set is now available in two brand new shades – celadon and burgundy red –designed to match the new bedspreads.
Karen features a chevron pattern on one side and ayala fabric on the other; while fort, crafted in linen of the same name, is white on one side and ash on the other.
