Details

Innovating interior living space design through a seating system displaying into a variety of elements, with different features, a strong aesthetic identity, elegant proportions and unrivaled comfort.

 

Freeman embodies this dual identity: the Freeman “Duvet” elements feature smooth, enveloping lines and extra-soft cushions that, like a warm embrace, induce a feeling of pure relaxation. Freeman “Duvet” combines soothing design elements and especially sophisticated construction details steeped in tradition that evoke classical modern perfection.

 

The Freeman “Tailor” elements express a different personality, with their more defined shapes and one-piece seats enhanced with top-stitching that accents their graphic nature and contemporary spirit.

 

The wedding of these two spirits makes it possible to create “multitasking” compositions, with a dynamic air that characterize different moments in the day and different ways of using the sofa. The Freeman seating system deservedly takes center stage in any living space, in which to enjoy the intimacy of family or entertain friends in an elegant, yet informal setting.

 

The base of the sofa is finished with an elegant, extruded aluminum frame with rounded edges in a glossy bronze painted finish. The cast aluminum joint fittings located at the corners are a defining detail that lends an air of sophistication to the sofa base.

 

The sofa is raised off the floor on refined metal feet with a glossy bronze painted finish for an effect of overall lightness.

Designer

Rodolfo Dordoni

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.
