The Italian furniture brand, Minotti, in collaboration with one of the greatest italian designers, Rodolfo Dordoni, achieved Jacques collection that blends a variety of materials in subtle ways to comfort and coziness. The best of Minotti furniture to see at Salone del Mobile 2018.
Minotti furniture provides a sense of timeless elegance and yet modern surprises, such as choice of material and textural combinations—placing wood, stone, glass, fabrics and leather in one room without it being overwhelming. This complementary eclecticism also emerges in the new Lawrence and Pollock seating systems, the Jacques collection and many other accessories.
The Jacques signed Rodolfo Dordoni for Minotti includes sofas, armchairs and poufs in different sizes, created by a common design root that translates a vaguely retro taste into an absolutely contemporary style sign.
A sophisticated aesthetic language that is expressed in soft shapes, contained proportions and details of a strong visual impact such as the base in Light Bronze finish metal. Sophisticated seams emphasize the curvilinear silhouette of armchairs and Jacques sofas, whose rounded shapes create an astonishing contrast to the geometric and rigorous volumes that characterize the Lawrence sofa.
All seats are joined by wrap-around lines that offer a pleasant feeling of warmth thanks to the soft seat and back padding. The perfection of the shapes and the impeccable packaging highlight the high level of know-how accumulated by the company over the years and fully express its well-established craftsmanship.
The sophisticated elegance and the compact proportions that characterize all the sessions of the Jacques collection allow these elements to enter into any environment – in a residential setting as well as in hospitality – and to be easily accessible to new seating systems.
