Indiana, it is the name of Minotti news project for outdoor and has Rodolfo Dordoni signature, one of Italian designers that is at the same time known as one of famous interior designers. Italian furniture brands on top again!
When a material is endowed with its own expressive energy, its shape cannot help but be dictated by this intrinsic quality. And that is what happened with the Indiana project – a new Minotti outdoor collection crafted to emphasize the quality of the solid iroko, a warm and versatile kind of wood that is well suited to being turned and sculpted to reveal shapes that radiate the charm of objects molded by nature and by exposure to the elements.
The Indiana family comprises numerous pieces – sofas, end elements, chaise-longues, ottomans, coffee tables – with their base in solid iroko, intricate hand-crafted dovetailing and finishing details, and available in both natural iroko and “Dark Brown” stained finish. The elements are raised off the floor on Pewter color painted aluminum caps that are inserted into the wood base.
The backrest and armrests are covered in a macro woven polypropylene webbing with a sleek, contemporary vibe and available in the following colors: Bamboo, Stone and Moka.
The structure of the armrests and backrest is in metal with a painted Pewter color finish and is covered with a special polypropylene webbing that forms a unique, entirely hand-crafted macro woven material. The color palette includes Bamboo, Stone and Moka, selected to coordinate well with both the structure in iroko wood and with the new fabrics in the exclusive outdoor textile collection.
