Leonard Sofa - Rudolfo Dordoni design
A project that originated from a rational thought: a seating system attained through the clustering of geometric upholstered pieces, soft as cushions, outlined with a profile trim that traces their silhouette and resting on an elegant aluminum base. A clear-cut concept that translates to a linear design where Leonard sits in perfect balance between tradition and modernity, an expression of the company’s own aesthetic language.
The essence of Leonard is visible in the special care taken with the construction features: a series of details that emphasize its commanding character. When seated on the Leonard sofa, one is immediately aware of a pleasurable feeling of softness. The goose-down wrapped Memory Foam cushioning is used both for the structural elements and the seat cushions to create a welcoming embrace and offers the utmost in comfort. Leonard is a seating system with a versatile personality that can bring a look of elegance to any setting – from classic to contemporary – and is equally at home upholstered in fresh, modern fabrics or more decorative ones.
In solid wood with high natural rubber content elastic strap webbing. Preparation of the seat frame in high resilience variable-density polyurethane foam with concave contour to cradle the cushion, maximizing softness and durability. Upper portion of armrests and backrests covered with heat-sensitive (Memory Foam) and wrapped in channeled goose down quilting. An additional casing in breathable heat-bonded fiber laminated to white hypoallergenic cotton canvas ticking lends superior softness.
Weight bearing and perimeter frame elements in extruded aluminum with cast aluminum joints (both are exclusive Minotti Studio designs), painted highgloss anti-fingerprint Pewter finish. Rests on nylon slides.
Seat cushions, backrest and structural covers are completely removable in all versions (fabric and leather). Covers come off without removing the base. Backrest and armrest covers feature piping trim around the perimeter.
In the fabric-upholstered version of the Claire “Relax” cushion, only the head-rest part is stitched with the diamond pattern, while the backrest remains smooth.
Channeled goose down (certified Assopiuma, gold label) padding for backrests and cushions with center insert in high resilience variable-density polyurethane foam. Seat cushions are completely reversible.
Cushion with 100% channeled goose down padding. Fabric or leather cover with diamond-pattern stitching bonded to hypoallergenic fiber. The Claire “Relax” headrest cushion includes a rigid material insert that aids adherence of the cushion to the sofa backrest. Metal zipper available in the opaque Gold and Pewter finishes, with zipper pull bearing the Minotti logo. Cover completely removable.
