Minotti: A story of Italian excellence over 70 years. Minotti was founded by Alberto Minotti in the 1950s.
Between the 1970s and 1980s they made their surname into a nationally and internationally acknowledged brand. Rodolfo Dordoni has been co-ordinating the collections since 1997. His mantra has been to strengthen the company concept, while testifying to the commitment of the brand to a luxury focused lifestyle philosophy. 100% Made in Italy is the key ingredient of Minotti's identity.
Basically, the emphasis is on a unique blend of tradition and technology, which is what sets Minotti apart. Minotti's products are craft finished, while making the most of everything that is offered by the industry, with a view to achieving the highest tailoring standard, strictly and genuinely Italian made. Trained artisans are the name for remarkable sensitivity and unparalleled expertise in refining details, approaching sofas as finely tailored products.
Expert hands producing quality, hands guided by passion and creativity, skilled conscientious hands. Hands proud of developing ITALIAN MADE products. Added to this high-level know-how is the careful selection of materials and technologies, which reveal a penchant for impeccable details, in an ideal striving for excellence that involves all sectors of the company. Hence the main strength of the Minotti brand lies in consistency and a perfect balance between tradition and modernity, luxury and rigour, fashion and a timeless design affording unparalleled comfort, reliability and the ability to stand the test of time. S tructure and proportions usher in a new architecture of the sofa.W hite seems to be a composite of perfectly balanced shapes. The repetitive overlapping of horizontal lines forms a highly distinctive aesthetic pattern that is further emphasised by the use of several different materials. The sofa base is completely upholstered in fabric, including the frame underneath the seat cushions, upon which the seat backs, cushions and shelf-tray tops are placed to create a captivating interplay of shapes and alternating positive and negative spaces.
The sofa sits on die-cast aluminium Pewter-coloured feet, an exclusive design by Minotti Studio, that are set at a 45 degree angle to the sofa corners, lending added flair, especially to larger sized compositions such as this. Each foot has the Minotti branding clearly embossed into the mould.To make the W hite sofa even more welcoming, the padding in the cushions is enhanced with a deeper layer of goose down, making them luxuriously soft and creating a pleasant contrast to the sleek formality of the base. A unique advantage of the White seating system lies in the option of adding shelf-tray tops in place of the armrest, making it possible to create particularly functional compositions as well as a stunning aesthetic with the combination of materials. Shaped like rectangular boxes, they have the same depth as the sofa base. Hand-crafted in Italy in the traditional way. Multi-ply wood, seat suspension is provided by elastic straps with a high rubber content. The sofa backrests are covered with channeled goose down quilted padding that enhances the softness of the upholstery. Reversible seat cushions with variable-density resilient polyurethane foam and channeled goose down surround. Back cushions with polyurethane foam core and channeled goose down surround. Completely removable for the seat, back cushions and the structure. Moulded aluminium die-cast feet (exclusive design by Minotti Studio) with extra-glossy, anti-touch Pewter coloured finish. Protective Hytrel glide (soft, scratch-proof rubber). Wood shelf - tray top: Structure in MDF assembled using. Oak veneer with open pore Tobacco stain finish. The quality of their structures, fabrics and attention to detail is second to none, which is precisely why they command such high prices. It has to be said that the level of comfort is completely unrivalled, and no amount of adjectives can suitably describe the actual experience, whether sitting on the sofa element or lying out on the chaise element. This is a large panoramic sofa and in "total comfort" will easily accommodate five adults, three on the sofa element and two on the chaise element. As soon as you see and then touch the exquisite fabric you just know that this is something really quite special indeed. One is immediately aware of a pleasurable feeling of softness. The craftsmanship and quality of this piece really is something to behold, and you have to see it and experience it with your own eyes to believe just how stunning it is.
It will just make you smile every time you see it as it is such a stunningly beautiful statement piece of design, no matter which angle you look at it from. Everything you would expect from a sartorial piece of furniture from Minotti. This sofa is in two separate elements that clip together with Minotti's patented system.Assembled as shown in our images, the total width along the back including the shelves is 409 cm. The dimensions of each element are as follows. Element 1 - Sofa with Shelf. Element 2 - Chaise Longue with Shelf. Backrest Height (with back cushions): 89 cm.
Backrest Height (without cushions): 61 cm. So it has merely sat there as if it was in a showroom, the only difference being that nobody has sat on it and tried it. It has therefore never been used and can only be described as being in a flawless brand new condition, precisely as you would expect to receive it had you ordered it from Minotti yourself and unpacked it. It therefore goes without saying that we are 100% confident that it will satisfy the requirements of any potential purchaser. So this really is a very rare one off opportunity, not only to have such an exquisite Minotti sofa at a significant saving on its current retail price, but, it will also be delivered and in your home within days.

We are an Italian family who have been immersed in interior design and the curation and collection of 20th and 21st century furniture, lighting, art, objet d'art and interior decoration for three generations. We offer a complete sourcing service for any rare and wonderful piece that you may be looking for, from an iconic mid-century modern piece up to current collections, as well as a comprehensive interior design service from one room to your whole home, and our Master Upholsterers and French Polishers can restore, upholster and repair any piece of furniture that you may already have.
We also take furniture to sell on your behalf on a commission basis. The undisputed motherland for art-level furniture. It's the same country responsible for Da Vinci's paintings, Armani's tailoring and Sophia Lauren's bodaciousness.Is it genetics or something in the Chianti that makes Italians such masters of all things beautiful? Not only is there rich history evident in their bold and brash creations, but we can also feel the drama and bravado of their culture and personalities. The stuff the Italians make is always sexy, gorgeous - and gorgeously made. Why the historical high bar? The people there are surrounded by unsurpassed cultural stimuli. Can you imagine growing up around Berninis, Michaelangelos, The Colosseum, Gucci, Pucci and Fiorucci? It's no wonder beauty seeps into their every pore and then gets re-contectualised in the wondrous things they make.
The work of the men and women in the pieces we painstakingly curate feels especially relevant right now. We methodically drain the mid-century modern and contemporary wells dry (Knoll and Herman Miller especially have been tapped out), and yet, sitting over there in the corner, cooling sipping Negronis and having a smoke, are Ponti, Aulenti, Sottsass, Colombo, Albini, Bellini, Mari, Mollino, Scarpa, Zanuso, Lissoni, Citterio and many, many others. There is a great treasure trove to be discovered. Whereas the American stuff is in our opinion staid and specifically designed to work for everyone, everywhere, the Italian creations are unique, expressive and outrageous.
The production output from these designers is minuscule compared with that of the U. A and other larger producers, Having a piece of Italian design is akin to having a piece of art or sculpture in your house-at an affordable price. As the world turns politically to the right, the work you'll find here is decidedly left-leaning, as radical and daring as the wild characters who created it. To own and display this work is a statement and declaration of individualism.
