A result of the careful research on the free-form, the Granville seating system focuses on an interplay of curves and of marked and light strokes.
The modules, which vary in shape and size, interact with each other, while the armrests and backrests design relaxing areas suggesting different ways of seating.
Granville is available both in the traditional sofa option and as a more flexible solution of detached islands. Joinable together, the various elements come without fixed backs and armrests and are characterized by the original curved shape of the removable armrest.
Developed not as a simple formal exercise, but as an opportunity to reflect on the sofa as a space to be lived and shared, Granville is the expression of a young and contemporary spirit.
The thickness of the back, together with the addition of a chaise-longue element and the detachable armrests are an invitation to live it in different ways, depending on the number of guests, their needs, or the time of the day.
A system that offers a new concept of comfort and that redesigns the living room landscape.
Minotti first began working with Christophe Delcourt, self-taught designer, in 2016.
Particularly esteemed for his on-trend, understated elegance, and his exceptional sensitivity to materials and colours, Christophe Delcourt made his debut on the French design scene at the end of the 1990s.
He stood out immediately for his extreme focus on materials and for the sartorial attention he paid to every structural detail, visible throughout all the production phases of his seats and furniture. In constant pursuit of perfection, and driven by a strong propensity for experimenting with textures, Christophe Delcourt owes his first steps in the industry and his professional growth to his close encounters with various artisans, including a blacksmith and a cabinet-maker, which helped him consolidate his skills as designer and maker.
In 2016, he came into contact with Roberto and Renato Minotti, whose curiosity was aroused by his elegant, contemporary version of the Parisian décorator-like style: an exquisite balanced combination of pure design, refined materials and impeccable workmanship with sophisticated attention to detail.
Christophe Delcourt interpreted the more decorative aspect of Minotti with the 2017 debut of the Lou collection – storage units, tables and coffee tables – the Fil Noir armchair and the Noor coffee table.
The next year, his partnership with Minotti evolved with two new designs, the Granville seating system and the Dan table, and in 2019 he created the Daniels seating system and the Amber coffee tables-low units.
In 2020, the French designer revisited the Lou storage units for the living, dining and night areas giving their look, materials, colour palette and structural details a makeover.
