The status and singularity of the Freeman “Tailor” project are perpetuated in its Freeman “Lounge” extension. The reduced depth of the seats gives Freeman “Lounge” the flexibility to fit easily in residential settings of limited scale as well as in hospitality environments, like waiting rooms, reception areas and corporate offices.
One-piece seats, distinguished by decorative stitching that defines a uniform, graphic motif, can be grouped together to form dynamic compositions.
The “Wing” armrest displays light lines thanks to the polyurethane foam coated metal structure.
The sophisticated tailoring of the upholstery reveals the company’s expertise in executing extremely complex fine-tailoring techniques. The various pieces in leather or fabric are assembled using a strip of bronze color eco-leather and double-stitched seams that lend a distinct sense of depth.
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.

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.
