Belt Cord Outdoor Armchair
2022 Belt Cord Outdoor Armchair
Rodolfo Dordoni 2022
The enveloping and comfortable body of the Belt collection now shapes the outdoor version. The band which, in the original design, outlines the silhouette of the volume recalling the shape of a belt, becomes a corded contour covering the shiny Bronze metal frame. The seat rests on a matt varnished aluminium base, in the shades of Ecru and Dark Brown, reiterating the colours of the cord or with natural finish teak legs. In addition to the bergère and two sizes of armchair, the Belt Cord Outdoor family includes a two-seater sofa, ottoman and dining chairs.
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.
