Anish Wood is an updated version of the Rodolfo Dordoni table collection in new materials, shapes and sizes. The circular or elliptical Licorice coloured ash tops have edges smoothed like river pebbles and rest on the characteristic polished Chrome or Pewter metal bases. The large coffee table version is solid timber, with the top resting on two curved bases, crafted with exquisite manufacturing skill.
The possibility of combining coffee tables of different heights allows Anish Wood to adapt to new ways of contemporary living with a high degree of versatility.
Born in Milan in 1954, Rodolfo Dordoni graduated as an architect in 1979 and until 1989 he was responsible for the art direction of Cappellini, while designing for a variety of brands including Cassina, Artemide, Driade, Moroso and Flos. Since 1998 he has been the artistic director of Minotti, coordinating all the company’s collections as well as designing many Minotti showrooms around the world.
Now helmed by the third generation of the Minotti family, Rodolfo Dordoni guarantees the modern-classic aspect of the portfolio while collaborations with designers including Frenchman Christophe Delcourt and Japan’s nendo bring in fresh perspective.
