A light and refined coffee table that finds its expressive power in the masterful use of lacquer, Louver features legs in solid Liquorice-coloured ash supporting a flared top that appears to rest delicately on top, as if it were a tray. Clearly inspired by the 1970s, its surface is animated by the strongly textured lacquer contrasted with the clean, minimal forms.
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.
