Sofas / Fixed / Powell

Powell, or the quintessential modern-day sofa as Minotti sees it: welcoming, refined and informal. A seating system with fixed and sectional seats, designed to cater to a natural desire to relax.

The fine balance of proportions, sartorial craftsmanship, every detail in powell harks back to the style that has become Minotti's identity. The aluminium base is a detail that cannot go unnoticed also because of its extra-glossy finish in an exclusive range of colors - sand, celadon, granite, plum and pewter - thus offering out-of-the ordinary and sophisticated color combinations that match with the upholstery, the sofa appears to be slightly raised from the ground, almost suspended, comfort is a must-have in every Minotti sofa.

And in order to make Powell more comfortable, a saddle hide head-rest has been provided, that can easily be placed near the arm and backrest and used to support the cushion, to offer the right support and maximum comfort.

the head-rest is available in mud, chesnut, tobacco and black. An aluminium frame runs along the entire perimeter of the sofa, creating a sharp contrast with the softness of the seating, while also protecting the lower part of the sofa.

Equallyimpressive are the corner frame joints in die-cast aluminium. The rigor of a technical material like aluminium is softened by the use of five color shades in extra-glossy finish - sand, celadon, plum, granite, pewter - which recur as a leitmotif in the 2012 collection.

The master craftsmanship is shown to perfection in the detailing such as the sofa profile that forms a teadrop in the corner with a 45 degrees joint. The relaxed elegance of the Powell project is expressed in its simple styling and stands out in a meticulous craftsmanship with down feather padding both for the single seating cushion and for the backrest cushions, which makes for a very comfortable sofa.

The precision of the profile that runs along the upper side of the sofa base and the sleek aluminium frame define its design and highlight its lightness.
