Rodolfo Dordoni design
Minotti Connery Sofa 2020 Collection
Contemporary, with a strong architectural appeal and pure lines reminiscent of the Mid-Century American spirit, the Connery seating system sports an exquisite aesthetic and design that instantly catch the eye. The clever combination of fine materials and sophisticated details adds a hint of couture to its design. An extremely versatile seating system, in terms of both composition and combination of materials, Overlay has a distinctive personality also expressed in the pairing of original square and round chaise-lounges. With its geometric rigour, the base creates an original contrast with the softness of the seat, conceived as a single cushion punctuated by light stitching defining the width of the seat – 83 or 68 cm – and with the structure of the backrest and armrest, covered in channelled goose down padding. The backrest and armrest form a single volume, with a 45° split in the corner.
As well as the fabric covering, the padded structural base can also feature a covering with strips of leather, crafted with the same technique used in fine leather luggage-making. References to the concept of high-end leather goods are also found in the headrests and the elegant “C”-shaped Flap surfaces, which seamlessly blend into the seating elements, animating the compositions with a vibrant rhythm. The structural base is raised from the ground on thin blades in extruded aluminium in a Brandy polished varnished finish, positioned at the front, giving the sofa an appealing and airy look, and recalling the metal parts of trunks and suitcases.
The Flap shelves reiterate the strip design of the structural base and make the system functional, offering stylish, surfaces on which to place objects. Covered in leather or Moka ash veneer, they dialogue harmoniously with the textures of the covering. The leather bands of the structural base, sewn together with straps and marked out by stitching that add rhythm to the design, are made with the same technique used in fine leather luggage-making. The same concept of high-end leather goods also inspires the freely adjustable headrests.
As with all Minotti products, the Minotti 2020 Collection is created and designed to compliment all the Minotti pieces for corporate, hospitality or private residence.
All Minotti furniture is 100% designed, sourced and Made in Italy.
