Donovan Sofa

Rodolfo Dordoni design

The Minotti Donovan Sofa Collection. At first glance, the austere grouping of the Donovan sofa elements call to mind the essential nature of cubism. However, once seated the sensations change. Donovan’s softness is surprising, swathed as it is in goose down, arms and back included. While eight different thicknesses of expanded polyurethane lend the seat cushion comfort that cries out quality. One of the latest Donovan innovations is the one-piece seat that creates a uniform seating surface without the classic “cracks” between one seat and another. This makes it possible to group elements together, even using sections with different dimensions to create original and pleasantly asymmetrical compositions. The personality of the Donovan sofa tends toward understatement and aims to appeal primarily to younger tastes, but this does not close the door on versatility – at ease in a modern and minimalist setting, simply upholster it in jacquard fabric, ensuring a perfect fit for a more classic decor. As to details, the eyes are drawn to the alluring Black-Nickel metal designer feet; they stand out against the floor just enough to express themselves. In a whisper, but with attitude.

The mix of elements that make up the Donovan sofa were carefully designed, combining soft and square pieces. The proportions of the armrest prevail over those of the back; both are fastened to the seat – three pieces held close together that come alive, creating an angular effect on the outside, very functional and linear, and soft on the inside, forming a fluffy niche.

The Donovan sofa further includes a corner element with two attractive functions: the first is to achieve “design-ability” among all the elements (end and centre elements) creating an infinite variety of sectional combinations; the second is to be a “one seat end element”, even when combined with a simple end element of any size, to recreate the effect of a single long sofa with an individual “corner niche”. The special detail at a 45-degree angle to the back, with soft, cushiony lines and workmanship that, with a skilful bit of tailoring, echoes the shapes to create a feeling of wrap-around continuity and voluptuous lines.
