With its bold, sculptural-shaped base, which draws a series of quarter circles, illuminated by the glints of the metal, and interspersed with a black insert, the Marvin table makes an impressive impact and is characterised by great versatility. It is part of a wide variety of dining tables with a clearly architectural inspiration, featuring bases in satin finish stainless steel or in Pewter-coloured varnished metal.
The design is enriched by the precious materials chosen for the top: Bianconero marble, with an interplay of nuances that imposes a strong, ultra-modern feel, and Marron Damasco marble. Alternatively, it comes with the top in brushed solid ash, sporting a Black open-pore lacquered finish.
Designed by Rodolfo Dordoni, it is available with the round top in three different diameters (160, 180 and 200 cm) and a top in the shape of an elegant rectangle, with softer lines and rounded corners, in three sizes.
The design is conceived to be customised with tailor-made solutions, thanks to the combination and interpretation of the design of the bases, depending on the shape and size of the top, up to very important proposals.
Marvin covers a variety of different design areas, also entering Hospitality environments as the true protagonist of the most sophisticated meeting rooms.
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.
