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.

On April 18, Minotti celebrated its 70th anniversary at the Villa Reale di Monza.
Approx 700 guests ( incl dedece ) were honored to attend to help the Minotti Family celebrate their family milestone in grand style – a fun, prosecco fueled evening in the spirit of Milanese hospitality and the brand’s customary elegance
The Design Academy of Eindhoven ( DAE ) alumni presented their graduation projects in Milan, Italy: at the Lambretto Art Project Building.
The ‘self’ in the exhibition title still first and foremost refers to the student. The Design Academy of Eindhoven is fully focused on the talents, preferences and fascinations of its students. For their graduation they have to initiate projects themselves, in which these come to the fore.
But when you look at those projects – about healthcare, open source production, new economic systems – they come across as pretty altruistic. Contemporary design is very much oriented toward the ‘unself’.’
