With a direct reference to the undulating profile of the ocean, the Waves coffee table consists of a Smoked Grey-coloured glass top, which is supported by a painted aluminium structure - in a Sand or Bronze tone on the outside, and a Pewter shade on the inside.
The succession of inverted semicircles that make up the sinuous front silhouette accommodates hollow spaces that enable the users to leave magazines, newspapers and small objects in plain sight.
Designed for the living room, but also perfect for other settings, it is available in four sizes. It can be combined with other Waves, to create a continuous modular sequence that plays with the transparency of the voids and the lightness of the lines.
Minotti and Oki Sato, Japanese designer born in 1977, first came into contact in 2017.
Multi-talented, poetic and original, in 2002, Oki Sato opened the architecture and design firm Nendo, of which he is Chief Designer. Internationally renowned for his multi-faceted approach, which spans from graphic design to product design, and from architecture to the creation of installations, Oki Sato officially joined the Minotti team of designers in 2018.
With his light, fresh and minimal style, he creates designs with a big personality and a poetic touch. He is mainly inspired by the manual work of master craftsmen and artisans, and by the interaction between people, objects and environment.
The creative synergy between Minotti and Oki Sato was expressed in 2018 with the launch of the Tape collection - a family of seats and tables characterized by a light silhouette and a strong identity - and the Ring and Waves coffee tables.
In 2019, the partnership continued, with Tape Cord Outdoor, the outdoor evolution of the award-winning and world-renowned Tape family, the Easel cabinets series and the Wedge table and coffee table.
In 2020, Oki Sato designed the Torii family of seats and furnishing accessories, available for both residential and Hospitality settings: a very detailed project that plays around with the roundness of the volumes, the thinness of the profiles and the apparent formal simplicity, at the same time highlighting the haute couture approach in Minotti’s distinctive sartorial craftsmanship.
