Details

Inspired by his many trips to Japan, the Daiki seat, part of the collection since 2020 in both indoor and outdoor versions, is the expression of the Brazilian architect’s passion for Japanese culture and is now available in an office version.

 

Made using sophisticated wood crafting techniques, the curved body is composed of two elements joined at a 45° angle, which guarantee maximum comfort. In Dark Brown stained palisander Santos, or Black-coloured open-pore lacquered flamed ash wood, the body provides a snug fit for the cushioning.

 

Daiki Studio is available in five versions, designed for different functions and uses.

 

Alongside an Executive armchair on wheels, with high backrest and a five-spoke base in Bronze-coloured varnished steel – a 360° swivel base with no return mechanism, but with height and rocker adjustment mechanisms – four more armchairs with lower backrest are available: an armchair with the same characteristics of the Executive armchair, but smaller; an armchair with a 360° swivel base composed of four spokes and feet, with return mechanism; a lounge armchair with legs in aluminium and, finally, a version of the same piece that is 10 cm taller, ideal for setting beside a table or a desk.

 

All the armchairs can be completely covered in leather or fabric, or feature armrests in Carbone-coloured Aspen leather and fabric cushioning. The cover, in leather or fabric, always features stitching, except in the Executive version, which also sports a slightly quilted effect.

 

Daiki Studio offers a design that explores and reinterprets the American Mid-Century moods in its bold, clean lines, fine materials and balanced proportions.

 

Designer

Marcio Kogan

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.
