Arkitektura Assembly: Bringing together the world of Design
Behind the Design
2018 is a very special year for Minotti. It marks the company’s 70th anniversary, a milestone that commemorates the company’s commitment to design excellence.
This year also marks the twentieth anniversary of the partnership with art director Rodolfo Dordoni, who has been behind some of the company’s most iconic designs interpreting the company’s style. Minotti has embraced an exciting creative multicultural exchange, thanks to the collaboration with distinguished design and architecture professionals like Nendo, Marcio Kogan and Christophe Delcourt, coordinated by the Milanese designer.
The result is an entirely multifaced collection, that reveals a design approach open to a variety of eloquently individualized contributions, rooted in vibrantly diverse cultural backgrounds. While maintaining the elegant shapes, discreet designs and continuity deeply embedded in the company’s DNA, the design language is distinctly international.
From Italy, Dordoni reaffirms his unmistakable style, linked to the principles of rationalism and interior decoration, designing timeless furnishings, pure expression of Minotti’s identity and reminiscent of the world of contemporary art.
From Japan, Nendo brings his light graphic touch, subtle poetry that runs through his designs, attention to proportions, thicknesses and unexpected details.
From France, Christophe Delcourt brings back the affection of French culture for decoration, precious materials, surfaces worked with artisan skill and master-cabinetry combined with high-end technology.
From Brazil, Marcio Kogan brings his architectural approach to the outdoor project, borrowing elements and materials from boating and nature, abolishing the boundaries indoors and out.
This collection interprets all of these inspirations and sets its sights on the future, integrating the infinity symbol into its name, an infinite present that marks the evolution of Minotti’s design strategy, a cross-contamination of styles and languages.
