Designed with the same rationalistic approach that pervades the architectures of the Brazilian designer, the Quadrado armchair sports minimal square shapes and a reclining backrest recalling the classic Teak duckboard, the element that characterizes the Quadrado modular system, presented in 2018.
The Teak structure, with metal details in Bronze finish, have straight armrests and accommodate the padded cushions of the backrest and seat.
The perfect relaxation companion, the armchair slips seamlessly into the various arrangements of the Quadrado system, and can also be used individually or together with other seats.
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.
