The Horizonte seating system, designed by Marcio Kogan / studio mk27 for Minotti, has won the prestigious Wallpaper* Design Awards 2023 in the Best Silhouettes category: a floating island with square lines that marks the horizon of the living space.
The award is an important acknowledgement of the creativity and style of the brand, which has been collaborating for years with international architects and designers with expertise in incorporating the Minotti values into their design proposals.
Perfectly consistent with Marcio Kogan’s design philosophy, the Horizonte modular seating system is the result of a clear architectural vision: a rigorous shape, raised seven centimetres off the ground thanks to a recessed plinth in matt black varnished metal, which gives the sofa a special feeling of suspension. A platform on which the upholstered elements are located - seats, backrests and armrests - all conceived as cushions with large volumes that help convey a strong personality.
The seemingly simple appearance of Horizonte gives rise to a sophisticated style code that can be used in a wide range of configurations by combining various different modules: an overall narrative that could continue forever without interruption is created. Sartorial attention to detail, from the stitching to the architectural proportions of the piece, to the possible combinations of materials and colours, makes this seat an architecture to be experienced.
