Marble, a material of timeless appeal, inspired the concept of a collection of accent tables displaying an unconventional elegance, versatility in placement and variety in finishes, available in many shapes and sizes.
Table tops in uncommon shapes rest on solid brushed oak legs with painted black finish. The bronzed metal cap that rests on the floor and the plate with the same finish located at the upper end of the leg are details that add a touch of refinement to accessories with an already bold personality. The many finishes available for the table top reflect the enchantment of different materials: from the natural effect of Sucupira veneer with stained Mink finish, to the more sophisticated Calacatta or Bardiglio Nuvolato marble, to the modern sheen of the glossy lacquered Sand or Mud finish. The table with round top comes in Sucupira veneer with stained Mink finish and in back painted glass in the following colors: Teal, Granite and Sand.
In addition to accent tables, the Jacob family also includes a writing desk with the top in Sand or Mud glossy lacquer finish, or in Sucupira veneer with stained Mink finish. The writing desk also has a convenient chest-of-drawers in wood with matt black lacquer finish.
The strategic collaboration between Minotti and Rodolfo Dordoni, architect and designer from Milan, began back in 1997.
Rationalist architect and professional with a multi-faceted personality, Rodolfo Dordoni met Renato and Roberto Minotti towards the end of the nineties. The Minotti brothers immediately considered Rodolfo Dordoni’s cultural background, professional experience and sensitivity as an interior decorator the ideal basis for forging a strong relationship. The challenge that faced them was to create a new vision of the company.
So, in 1997, Rodolfo Dordoni presented his first collection of seats, tables and coffee tables, including Suitcase, the iconic cubic armchair freely inspired by the world of fashion and luggage-making. A successful design, rigorous and non-conventional, which marked the beginning of a consolidated relationship that has spanned more than twenty years and shows no signs of slowing down.
The next year, in 1998, he was nominated Art Director and coordinator of all the company’s collections. This marked a turning point that launched him on a pathway of continuous research, guided by the values of coherence, determination, passion and enthusiasm. Over the years, it led to the definition of a full range for the home, designed for both indoor and outdoor environments and for Hospitality spaces, fully interpreting the concept of “collection” and “lifestyle”.
Year after year, collection after collection, this collaboration has played a part in reinforcing the brand identity and in giving the collections a feel of exclusivity, carrying a strong message of quality and fine Italian craftsmanship all round the world, by innovating and creating continuity.
The collaboration has also extended to designing the stands for the various editions of the Salone del Mobile in Milan and Shanghai and the fair in Cologne, as well as the creation of spaces such as the Minotti New York flagship store, opened in 2010, and the company showroom installed in the headquarters in Meda in 2012.
His many iconic indoor and outdoor furniture designs created since he began working with the company over 20 years ago have recently been joined by some new additions - the Connery and Blazer indoor and the Sunray outdoor seating systems - all characterised by pure volumes, sharp geometries and a haute couture approach to sartorial craftsmanship - along with a myriad of furnishing solutions, small furniture and accessories.
