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 art 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.
The cocktail party had over 100 guests in attendance including members of the Minotti family and creative director Rodolfo Dordoni (his first visit to Australia ), the Engelen family and of course the amazing Melbourne Dedece team.
The cocktail party was catered by Damm Fine Foods with alcohol provided by Melbourne institution Enoteca Sileno.
