Rodolfo Dordoni design
A faceting effect livens up and interrupts the cubism that sets the morphology of the West system apart from the clichés of modern design. Characterised by its suitability for use in a wide range of different contemporary and traditional arrangements, West also features glints of pure creativity, such as the chaise-longue, available in pentagonal or hexagonal form and the elements that stand out for their striking backrests in saddle hide, ergonomically shaped to rise and support the rear cushion.
True elements of surprise, they break up the compositional layout, creating a stylistic point of interest, and interrupting the continuous effect of the fabric covering, visually lightening the volume at the rear. A solution designed to optimise both look and form, created with the know-how about design and the savoir-faire associated with fine tailoring that have always distinguished the Minotti brand.
Every element of the system is made with exquisite goose down padding to ensure maximum comfort, features cushions finished with a piping that defines their profile and a distinctive aluminium strip, slightly rounded at the edges which skims the floor, in a brand new polished Brandy colour finish.
West leaves plenty of room for interesting compositional possibilities: it enters a harmonious dialogue in terms of both colour and shape with the Amber coffee tables, is complemented by the Side coffee tables, with their frame in saddle hide that evokes that of the backrest and enhanced by the Clive consoles, which play around with surfaces, even setting one over another.
The combination of the two looks of West, one with backrest in saddle hide and the other more conventional version with padded backrest and armrest – creates original arrangements and unusual textural and colour pairings, with saddle hide taking centre stage in a range of new, exclusive colours.

To facilitate transport and removal of covers, the armrests can be removed from the base by means of a quick coupling and uncoupling system. First remove the four extruded aluminium strips from the piece. The “Brandy” finish, developed by Minotti Studio and distributed exclusively, is obtained from an extremely high quality craftmanship that highlights the polished brushing of the aluminium including possible natural shades that make each piece unique.
Made of variable-density polyurethane foam, covered with quilted goose down divided into sections and fi xed to the frame by means of a strip.

If the material of the cushion cover is not specified in the order, it will be co-ordinated with the sofa cover. Removable covers.
