Starting from January 2020, the new Shelley dining little armchair joins the Shelley armchair and lounge little armchair: a seat designed for the dining area that features the same refined design and the same cubic shapes as the project of the same name signed by GamFratesi. In addition to embodying formal elegance and comfort, the dining armchair easily combines compact proportions and a contemporary aesthetic taste, with references to the distinctive features of the Scandinavian style. 


The height of the seat is increased of 6 cm compared to the lounge little armchair, maintaining the same metal structure in Black-Nickel finish, with front legs inclined and slightly open sideways, in support of a rigid saddle-hide shell slightly flared at the top.


Available in a wide range of colours – including the new Ash, Sage, Bordeaux and Dove Grey colours – the shell embraces a soft and comfortable padded seat, enhanced by a careful processing technique and refined tailoring profiles and details.


The materiality of the saddle-hide and the plurality of upholsteries for the seat make Shelley dining a particularly versatile and extremely sophisticated furnishing, capable of fitting with measured elegance into any residential and Hospitality context.





Minotti and GamFratesi began collaborating in 2018.


The design of GamFratesi, architecture firm established in 2006 in Copenhagen by Italian-Danish duo Stine Gam and Enrico Fratesi, is rooted in the perfect fusion of tradition and innovation, craftsmanship and technology, rigour and poetry.


With their different cultural backgrounds, Stine Gam and Enrico Fratesi model their creative intuitions into designs that draw from both the classic decor and artisan tradition of Denmark and the classic Italian intellectual and conceptual approach.


A tried and tested melting pot of styles, expressed in furniture, objects, and installations with a silent, never shouted elegance, in the production techniques used and in the meticulous attention to detail applied to the creations. The result is a sophisticated interpretation of Scandinavian minimalism, with subtle, yet striking Nordic hints.


In 2019, GamFratesi designed two indoor proposals for Minotti, namely the Angie armchair and dining little armchair and the Shelley armchair, also available in the lounge and dining little armchair versions. The partnership evolved and was strengthened in 2020 with the launch of the Fynn family of seats, in the armchair, lounge and dining little armchair, bench and coffee table versions. A project characterized by an ultra-light aesthetic, expressed in the indoor and outdoor versions, associating the creativity of fine cabinet-making found in the wooden elements with the sophisticated sartorial elegance of the fabric or saddle-hide coverings.
