Minotti and INODA+SVEJE met for the first time in 2021: the collaboration with the designer duo made up of Kyoko Inoda (Japan) and Nils Sveje (Denmark), that represents for Minotti an unprecedented choice, is rooted in the ineffable bond between the Orient and Scandinavia but, above all, in the brand's inexhaustible pursuit of beauty and excellent workmanship.
INODA+SVEJE design is characterised by a harmonious approach and incredible attention to shapes and proportions: the duo takes inspiration from the world of nature, which is expressed in the sophisticated details of its projects, in the soft lines and precious joints of cabinet making.
The projects designed by INODA+SVEJE for the 2022 Collection embody the traditional aesthetics and art of wood-sanding, typical of their respective countries of origin, and Minotti’s decades of upholstered furniture expertise.
Their debut is marked by the elegance of the Yoko family of seats, the organic shapes of the Lars sofa and the compact Sendai seats. The duo is also behind the Yoko Cord Outdoor family for open-air spaces and, for the 2023 Collection, the Sendai Cord Outdoor swivel seat.
A whole, a choral project that is part of a single vision characterised by coherent aesthetic taste, a synthesis of both of the stylistic identities of the designers, representing two worlds that are so distant yet so linked.
