Minotti Lido Armchair

GamFratesi design

Designed by Italian-Danish duo GamFratesi and inspired by the 1950s, the Minotti Lido Armchair is a comfortable basket-like nest, with a circular seat enveloped by a curved line that defines its padded body.

Designed by Italian-Danish duo GamFratesi, the Lido Armchair is a comfortable basket-like nest, with a circular seat. The design takes inspiration from the 1950s, one of the key themes throughout Minotti’s 2021 Indoor Collection.

This inspiration is expressed in a seat with an enveloping curved line that defines the padded body. The lines recall the typical stylistic traits of Brutalist architecture, with the goose-down cushions adding an element of comfort.

GamFratesi draws from both the classic decor and artisan tradition of Denmark and the classic Italian intellectual and conceptual approach. The result is a sophisticated interpretation of Scandinavian minimalism with subtle yet striking Nordic hints, as apparent with the Minotti Lido Armchair.

Sculptural and Comfortable

The X-shaped sculptural base is a strong distinguishing feature. The Minotti Lido Armchair is available in one size, with two types of bases. The X-shaped version is aluminium covered in brushed ash with a Moka open-pore lacquered finish.

The second version features legs in solid wood: Moka lacquered open-pore brushed ash or matt polyester lacquered Dark Brown stained Canaletto walnut. The tops of the legs feature an interesting decorative insert in Bronze varnished steel, elegantly distinguishing the point where the legs join the frame.

An Iconic Collection

The Lido collection also includes dining and lounge armchairs with solid wooden legs and coffee tables that sit on the same iconic X-shaped base as the Lido Armchair. These are available with a round or square top, in Bianconero marble or brushed ash wood with a Moka open-pore lacquered finish.
