Lisbon, apartment

In Lisbon's historic Chiado district, the haunt of writers and intellectuals in times gone by, a beautiful flat blends the contemporary style of Minotti's Made in Italy furnishing pieces with the charm of the romantic Belle Époque architecture that houses them.

Restored by the Portuguese architectural studio Openbook, Edificio São Carlos, located a short distance away from Teatro Nacional de São Carlos, bears witness to the resilience of the city of Lisbon following the 1755 earthquake. Its historic walls enshrine the beauty of a dwelling that harmoniously balances the demands of contemporary living with the heritage and charm of the past: the elegant stone framing the stained glass windows has been carefully preserved, as has the height of the exquisite ceilings, which elevates the sense of space and the sophistication of the design pieces chosen to furnish the rooms.

In the spacious apartment, bright dining and living areas alternate, characterised by a warm, convivial allure that welcomes the brand's new 2023 Collection, together with other iconic designs. 

The entrance leads to an initial living area, furnished with the modern, sinuous lines of the Raphael family of seats, designed by GamFratesi, which find their ideal setting among the elegant classical decorations, together with the softly rounded volume of the Torii Bold pouf by Nendo. The succession of curves is also repeated in the adjacent dining area, where the strong personality of the iconic Van Dyck table by Rodolfo Dordoni, in its round version, stands out in the centre, accompanied by the new Raphael dining little armchairs. 

A second, larger living area features the modular seating system Dylan Low, designed by Rodolfo Dordoni, which combines contemporary aesthetics with a more traditional taste, in line with the timeless atmosphere of the place, and is presented together with the Raphael family of seats. The lines of Dylan Low, characterised by a sophisticated density of sartorial details, are echoed in the Sally swivel armchair by Rodolfo Dordoni, which designs, together with the Brady coffee table, a refined reading or conversation corner, dedicated to relaxation.

Finally, the living room flows into a small oasis of peacefulness, hosting the soft asymmetrical curve of the Lars sofa, designed by Inoda+Sveje, together with the 1970s style of the Louver coffee table by Dordoni.

Among the avenues bristling with art and history of the Portuguese capital, the dialogue between the authenticity of the residence, which retains its original splendour, and the contemporary spirit that distinguishes Minotti's proposals is revealed in a combination of delicate colours and accurate material contrasts.
