With a design that develops a quarter, eighth and sixteenth of a circle into three-dimensional elements, the Amber low units give the impression of modular furniture with countless configurations, flaunting forms that twist and turn in the space.
They are designed to stand alone or for use as part of an arrangement, as individual features or combined in seating systems, creating interesting contrasts between hard and soft materials that convey a dynamic effect to the various solutions.
Amber is at its most expressive when combined with the Daniels seating system, creating striking sequences in the living spaces with domino arrangements and designing a new domestic scenery, just like a true landscape design project for interiors.
Its frame in Moka-coloured wenge wood is covered outside with a sheet of matt Malt-coloured metal, and in some sizes it is enhanced by a partition in Zebrino marble or in Warm Grey glossy lacquered.
The Amber family also includes square elements with open compartments or spaces closed by a drawer.
An element that breaks the linear layout while at the same time linking the various features, Amber becomes the star of the show when positioned in the centre of the room, to create highly original, dynamic living areas.
Minotti first began working with Christophe Delcourt, self-taught designer, in 2016.
Particularly esteemed for his on-trend, understated elegance, and his exceptional sensitivity to materials and colours, Christophe Delcourt made his debut on the French design scene at the end of the 1990s.
He stood out immediately for his extreme focus on materials and for the sartorial attention he paid to every structural detail, visible throughout all the production phases of his seats and furniture. In constant pursuit of perfection, and driven by a strong propensity for experimenting with textures, Christophe Delcourt owes his first steps in the industry and his professional growth to his close encounters with various artisans, including a blacksmith and a cabinet-maker, which helped him consolidate his skills as designer and maker.
In 2016, he came into contact with Roberto and Renato Minotti, whose curiosity was aroused by his elegant, contemporary version of the Parisian décorator-like style: an exquisite balanced combination of pure design, refined materials and impeccable workmanship with sophisticated attention to detail.
Christophe Delcourt interpreted the more decorative aspect of Minotti with the 2017 debut of the Lou collection – storage units, tables and coffee tables – the Fil Noir armchair and the Noor coffee table.
The next year, his partnership with Minotti evolved with two new designs, the Granville seating system and the Dan table, and in 2019 he created the Daniels seating system and the Amber coffee tables-low units.
In 2020, the French designer revisited the Lou storage units for the living, dining and night areas giving their look, materials, colour palette and structural details a makeover.
