Harking back to the 1970s tradition of generously enveloping armchairs, the Emmi Armchair brings a bold, characterful aesthetic. An expression of masterful design, this modern homage to the classic aesthetic combines comfort and craftsmanship into an elegant whole.

Emmi Armchair

Combining the elegant Italian craftsmanship you expect from the Minotti name with the characteristic design flair of Hannes Peer, the Emmi Armchair is an ode to comfort. Both understated and simultaneously filled with character, Peer’s deep understanding of the rhythms of life shines forth from the harmonious balance evidenced in the chair’s shapes.

Generously proportioned, the upholstered seating envelopes in a soft, nest-like seat. Two cushions, ergonomically curved to accommodate a relaxed posture, encouraging the user to take their ease. At the same time, the architectural elements such as the round-edged rectangular legs lend rigidity without compromising the softness inherent in the deeply cushioned design.

Haute-Couture Sophistication

At once both deeply relaxed and elegantly formal, the Emmi Armchair is capable of characterising a whole living space. Deeply characterful, it exudes a sophistication which colours and enhances its surroundings with a refined sophistication.

The choice of glossy lacquered wood or leather upholstery on the legs, partnered with the clearly evident Minotti manufacturing know-how gives the Emmi Armchair a distinctive haute-couture sophistication. At the same time, its clear 1970s influences, drawn from the golden age of Italian furniture design, are allowed full voice. 

The effect is to create an instant classic- both modern and deeply grounded in the heritage from which it arises. 

Moments of Relaxation

The inviting nest created by the joining of the two deep cushions invites us in, enveloping us as we sit. Creating moments of perfect relaxation, especially when partnered with the similarly featured ottoman, the Emmi Armchair is designed for lives-well-lived.

With Hannes Peer’s customary consideration for the patterns and rhythms of life and his devotion to harnessing craftsmanship in their service, the Emmi’s soft curves evoke a comfortable nostalgia while offering a strikingly modern update to the classic aesthetic.

Many Contexts, Singular Experience

With such a bold, characterful design, Peer has crafted a chair which finds its natural home in both the home and hospitality settings. Wherever a refined relaxation is the order of the day, the Emmi Armchair fits, enhancing its surroundings.

Whether in the privacy of residential settings, where we retreat from the world, or the relaxed, yet elegant world of hospitality, the Emmi finds its comfortable home. Evoking a sophisticated private-club aesthetic while remaining homely, the elegance of the Emmi Armchair fills any space with bold charm.

Partnered with a small side table and the accompanying ottoman, relaxation is all but assured.
