An armchair featuring the latest technology and the most innovative materials in shapes that are reminiscent of the classic design tradition of the 50's. A particularly complex design process gives rise to a die-cast aluminium base, a shape with changing lines and thicknesses producing an industrial design element whose aesthetics are similar to a sculpture.
Prince is the finest expression of Minotti's high level know-how. The construction complexity of the base creates an intriguing juxtaposition with the harmonious shape of the seat, a fine line softened by th down padding and highlighted by the arco 17 senape color upholstery, a chromatic interpretation with a strong personality that makes a considerable impact in interior design.
Prince offers a variety of finishings with different underlying stylistic interpretations. Added to the brushed glossy aluminium, are the versions in semi-glossy black, extra-glossy sand and pewter which play down the sleekness of the aluminium and make Prince a very versatile armchair that blends in with any setting, in keeping with all the sofas in the collection.
As a result of the detailed workmanship, in the finest Minotti tradition coupled with meticulous attention to every construction detail, Prince strikes the perfect balance between a classy 50's design and a strong modernity that confer a tailored look.
The fabric and leather upholstery in the exclusive Minotti collection fits to perfection while being completely removable. Prince with its brown colored shearling upholstery is a warm and inviting interpretation that marries industrial design with craftsmanship.
Curves and cushions are highlighted by the use of a precious material, sheepskin, sewn on the reverse as is normally done in the leather trade.
