The Gladstone coffee table epitomises the Minotti 2022 Collection, characterised by an identity that combines Scandinavian design with Japanese aesthetics. Its base recalls the organic forms of Nordic design with clear inspiration from the 1970s: four solid cylindrical legs support an oval top which, thanks to its flared detail, appears thin and light, creating a pleasant contrast between the materiality of the marble and the visual lightness of the coffee table.
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.
