Featuring sofas, armchairs and more in the Connery, Torii and Blazer families
Among the many lessons learned throughout 2020, a particularly novel development that surely resonates with many people is the importance of home improvement. Whether it’s in terms of aesthetics, function or – perhaps most importantly – comfort, the idea of fine-tuning your home to provide the best environment for both work and leisure has really come to the forefront.
Interestingly, as more and more people become more invested in creating the perfect home, some of the more underappreciated elements have come under the spotlight. Case in point: seating systems. By that we’re talking about sofas, modular seats, armchairs, ottomans and more – including console tables, coffee tables etc. to go along with them.
And on that note, if you’re looking to upgrade the way you sit around your home, especially to unwind and relax, Minotti has quite the selection for you. This time around, we’ll take a closer look at three highlighted families of products.
First up, we have the Connery family, which sports a contemporary aesthetic with strong architectural elements and pure lines that brings to mind the mid-century modern design movement in America. For sure, Connery pieces are exquisite and eye-catching with a hint of couture brought about by fine materials and sophisticated details. One such detail is the padded structural base, which can feature a covering with strips of leather that are crafted with the same techniques used for luxury leather luggage pieces. Another example would be the C-shaped flaps that blend seamlessly into the seating elements, adding a vibrant rhythm to the objects.
Functionally-speaking, the Connery family is incredibly versatile, but not just in terms of composition, mind you, but also in material combinations. Of particular note, the pairing of original square and round chaise-longues gives the Connery a distinct personality.
Inspired by the distinctive shape of torii – the traditional Japanese gate at the entrance of Shinto shrines – the Torii modular seats play with round edged volumes, thin profiles and the apparent formal simplicity of an extremely detailed design. Naturally, there are plenty of nods to classical Japanese crafts, such as kigumi, or interlocking wooden joints. At the same time, the pieces also feature plenty of couture elements, such as the vertical quilting and piping along the perimeter of the cushioning on the slim backrest. Customised covering – either 100-percent fabric or leather or fabric with a leather base – further punctuate the Torii’s refined feel.
All in all, the Torii family includes a wide array of sofas – with both high and low backrests – along with armchairs, lounge and dining little armchairs, ottomans, coffee tables, and a slender, oval-shaped console table. With its airy aesthetics, these pieces can easily be placed in just about any living area.
For our final highlight today, we have a range of creations that best expresses the artisanal attitude of Minotti as a whole: the Blazer family. In short, there is a distinctive haute couture approach to Blazer, as exemplified through, among others, the ever-present stitching across all surfaces, the use of matelassé weaving technique to create quilted patterns and more. The various Blazer sofas all exhibit strong character and are accompanied by various modular elements, which allow for myriad configurations. Essentially, Blazer, very much like its namesake, abounds with sartorial touches that speak of a bold personality.
