Digby Summerhill: Hi, my name is Digby Summerhill, I’m one of the directors here at Minotti London and I’d like to tell you about my favourite piece in the 2021 collection from Minotti, which is the Roger sofa.
I like the Roger sofa system because it is a system. It’s not really a product that we’ve designed. It’s a selection of pieces that allows an architect or a designer to use those modules and components to create a unique or bespoke solution tailored to their client’s needs and I think that’s quite unique.
There’s built-in cabinetry which is a lovely touch and feature for soft seating. The cushions are reversible, which is very practical, all of the covers can be removed, they can be dry-cleaned or reupholstered in new materials in the future if your tastes change. And it can evolve over time because of the modularity.
I particularly like how well it blends in with previous collections like the 2020 collection, but I think that’s part of Minotti’s ethos. There are no individually iconic pieces.
It’s a design DNA. That’s what’s so wonderful about it. It’s the collection as a whole, the family of products that is the identity, and not anyone’s individual product.
