The Lifescape in/outdoor collection, presented at Imm Cologne 2013, is enhanced with a new series, Le Parc, inspired upon traditional European wrought iron furniture, revisited in a contemporary key and without all the frills that characterize most of these kinds of furnishings.What remains is the quest for lightness and graceful lines and a clearly stated tribute to a certain retro look.
The Le Parc family includes two- and three-seat sofas, armchairs, chaise-longues, ottomans, benches, chairs, tables and occasional tables, all made of curved tubular iron, painted in the following colors: White or Silver-Black, with the characteristic bush hammered finish. Recurring theme of the collection are the sinuous iron structures with a cross-piece motif and geometric decorative pattern, an exclusive design by Minotti Studio, distinctive to the laser cut seats and table tops. The severity of the iron frame is tempered by the soft seat and back cushions. All the Le Parc table tops are in tempered smoked glass.
The Le Parc series makes it possible to create congenial settings for a terrace or deck, with the style and elegance that set Minotti products apart. A special bush hammered effect distinguishes the painted finish of the pieces in the Le Parc line and is available in White and in a new, sophisticated shade of Silver-Black.The cushions have internal padding in high density expanded polyurethane and are covered in water resistant fiber-fabric. .
They are attached to the frame by means of elegant laces in saddle-hide dyed to match the paint color, while the buttons are in rustproof bronze and, like all the accessories used in their making – zippers and thread – are water repellent and therefore ideal for use outdoors. The removable upholstery comes in a vast range of exclusive fabrics and colors, all carefully tested for resistance to wear in outdoor settings.
Structure: metal, which undergoes three stages of processing: 1) sandblasting, 2) application of zinc primer for exterior use (encourages and improves adherence of the finish paint) and 3) polyester exterior paint with bush-hammered effect. Available in White or Silver-Black finish.
The iron structures with a cross-piece motif and geometric decorative pattern, an exclusive design by Minotti Studio, distinctive to the laser cut seats and table tops.
Tops tables: smoked grey tempered glass, 8 mm.
Cushions: high density polyurethane foam and eco-friendly waterproof fiber for the seat and back cushions.
Covers: completely removable seat and back cushion covers. Protective polyethylene glide.
Rain Cover optional: rubberized 150-300 polyester. The PVC contains additives that are designed to offer more protection: anti-UV for exposure to direct sunlight, anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, anti-mite and self-extinguishing. Avoid the use of aggressive cleaning agents, even general purpose agents. It is highly recommended to make maximum use of the Rain Covers – not only during the winter months – to keep the Le Parc in good condition. Although the materials and processing methods have been carefully chosen for their properties and performance in outdoor environments, weather conditions can significantly alter the original state of the furniture.
