Details

Designed in 2017 by Christophe Delcourt and consisting of a series of elements for the living, dining and night areas, the Lou family is enriched by new types of cabinets.

 

Synonym of refined cabinet-making and high-end technology, they have in common the preciousness of the materials, from the brushed ash or the opaque ebony of the structure to the Calacatta marble or the flush-fitted tops in wood matching the colour of the structure, to the glossy painted metal base.

 

While maintaining the same precious and refined details, the new pieces represent a lightened version of the original project. A unique design defines the leg conceived as a circular section with the concave side facing outwards, treated with a Pewter-coloured glossy finish that emphasise its elegance.

 

The French designer changes the codes of perception with hidden features, offering a contemporary reinterpretation of the traditional meuble à secret. The console provides an interplay of drawers, while the cabinet-bar reveals a cockpit compartment covered in polished steel and the classic buffet unveils a series of doors and drawers.

 

For a family of objects to be rediscovered every day, in which each detail leads to the next one.

 

Designer

Christophe Delcourt

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.
