Blending rigour and sinuosity, celebrating form and function alike Yves is a seating system with a twin soul. Joining organic shapes and rational volumes with unexpected tailored details, this project transports us to a modern interpretation of the 1970’s heyday of Italian design.

Yves Seating System

The single piece seats offer a playful variety of configurations and depths, allowing you to curate your environment. Born of the rounded shapes, each can be placed to create unique arrangements; cosy coves give way to open spaces. Concurrently, the firm, hard edges bring a reassuring solidity. Together these elements mean the Yves fits seamlessly into any intimate space.

This playfulness allows endless adaption to your space and your way of life- a hallmark of designer Hannes Peer’s work. This blending of disparate elements marks the Yves as distinctly Peers while marking it as an integral part of the Minotti 2024 Collection.

Modular by nature, each configuration of traditional cushioned seat and single-piece can be tailored to perfectly enhance the flow and contours of your space. 

Fluid Design 

Yves represents a true domestic landscape, marrying distinct elements into a greater gestalt whole. Each element, though seemingly contradictory, is melded into a fluid, flowing whole, with elegant curves and comfort being brought to the fore.

The sinuosity of each element’s shape is offset with playful, bold tailoring, harnessing rhythm and flow to create a uniquely fluid yet reassuringly architectural feeling, regardless of configuration.

This playfulness, coupled effortlessly with a reassuring solidity, lies at the heart of the Yves project. Designed for life without compromises, the Minotti studio has blended these diverse elements into a modular marvel that celebrates and enhances its surroundings.

Playful Combinations, Infinite Variety

An innate playful asymmetry and organic flow mean that the Yves seating system partners exquisitely with other pieces from your collection or can stand comfortably alone.

Embracing the space created by an open arrangement or introducing an ottoman or table allows you to create an infinite number of atmospheres. An inbuilt adaptability, drawing on the many dualities inherent to the design, gifts a unique way to enhance any space.

The tailored elements, bold graphic elements such as the asymmetrical seems, are key to the versatility of the Yves system. This innate fluidity dictates every element, from flowing contours to the architectural structures which make the design possible.

Enhancing whichever space it’s introduced to, the Yves brings solidity to softer surroundings and fluidity to the harder-edged.

Traditional Sensibility, Modern Living

Though deeply inspired by the 1970s, there is no doubt that the Yves seating system is designed for modern living. 

Elegant yet embracing the rigours of life, the modular nature allows the Yves to evolve with the needs of your home. As spaces change, Yves can adapt alongside; a feature of a deep duality in the design language.

Lively and playful, yet reassuringly comfortable and intimate, the Minotti family have brought infinite adaptability to modular design.
