Minotti Lido Sofa

GamFratesi design

Designed by Italian-Danish duo GamFratesi, the hallmark of the Minotti Lido Sofa is its welcoming nest shape and curved silhouette: a compact furnishing piece ideal for both residential and hospitality spaces. The 1950s-inspired design recalls the stylistic traits of Brutalist architecture, softened by Minotti’s masterful use of textured fabrics and comfortable cushions.

The welcoming nest shape of the Lido Sofa by Italian-Danish duo GamFratesi is the hallmark of its design. The body is defined by a curved silhouette, a compact two-seater furnishing piece, ideal in both home and hospitality settings.

The design is clearly inspired by the 1950s, bringing to mind the stylistic traits of Brutalist architecture, softened by Minotti’s masterful use of textured fabrics and comfortable, ergonomic cushions.

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

Iconic Simplicity

The Lido Sofa is raised by four solid wooden legs, in either Moka-coloured open-pore polished ash or Canaletto walnut with a Dark Brown stained veneer.

Alternatively, it can rest on the iconic Lido X-shaped aluminium base with Moka-coloured open-pore polished ash finish. This option imbues the Lido Sofa with timeless beauty and ensures it pairs easily with other pieces in the Lido collection.

Both legs and X-shaped base options are enhanced by a decorative insert in Bronze-coloured varnished steel, demarcating the body and the base. The Lido family includes armchairs, ottomans, small dining and lounge armchairs, and coffee tables.
