Minimalist, with elegant proportions, the Linha coffee tables are the expression of a design approach that focuses on the architecture of the product and its creation with carefully worked materials.
The Linha family welcomes coffee tables that reiterate the airy lines of the dining table, designed by a thin marble top only 16 mm thick. The coffee tables come in a variety of different sizes and geometric shapes - square, rectangular, circular and oval -, spotlighting the exquisite visual qualities of the marble.
The stratified bearing structure with matt black lacquered finish features thin aluminium sides with a varnished Golden Brown finish and a top in Grigio Orobico or Sahara Noir marble, matt polyester finish.
The coffee tables can be joined to create larger surfaces and design variable compositions with a striking impact, thanks to the effects created by the open and closed volumes of their bridge-like frame.
The partnership between Minotti and Marcio Kogan, Brazilian architect, began in 2017.
Marcio Kogan approached the world of architecture and opened the mk27 studio in São Paolo at the end of the seventies: it has a cosmopolitan team, today consisting of more than thirty architects, all great admirers of Brazilian modernism.
Volcanic and rigorous, attentive to the pure volumes and simple shapes of his designs, as well as the details and finishes, Marcio Kogan favours open, squared architectures - which aesthetically and stylistically merge in and out - characterized by floor-to-ceiling windows that erase the boundary with the outdoors.
With a design style inspired by nature, the warm, light-coloured woods of his homeland, and the clean lines of his architectural works, in 2018, he designed the Quadrado seating system for Minotti. A modular line featuring minimal volumes and materials, and characterised by the light, almost floating design of the bases. A well-structured series of products conceived to furnish both small and large open-air spaces, to be enjoyed in full relaxation mode.
The project was naturally extended in 2019 with the addition of the double daybed, armchair and dining table. Solutions with a strong visual impact, where the Brazilian architect’s distinctive design style comes to the fore.
For the 2020 Collection, Marcio Kogan further strengthened his creative partnership with Minotti by proposing, for the first time, three indoor designs: the Daiki armchairs (available also in the outdoor version together with the dining little armchairs), the Boteco family of sideboards and the Linha tables and coffee tables. The designs incorporate evidence of his trademark minimal style, defined by rigorous lines and shapes, which at the same time express a sophisticated choice of finishes and fine materials.
