The Superquadra collection takes its name from the pilot town planning design by Lúcio Costa and Oscar Niemeyer, conceived in 1956 for a residential neighbourhood of Brasilia. The square volumes of the famous buildings suspended on agile pilotis are reinterpreted by Marcio Kogan into sideboards, benches, coffee tables, console table and tables.
The benches are available in two heights and come in four versions: with all-fabric or leather covering, with seat paired with a top in Dark Brown stained palisander Santos, with seat set beside a top in Calacatta or Sahara Noir marble, or with two tops, in solid wood and Calacatta or solid wood and Sahara Noir marble.
Brazilian architect Marcio Kogan (b. 1952) established Studio MK27 in São Paolo in the late 1970s. Working in the tradition of mid-century Brazilian modernism, his furniture is an adroit rendering of architectonic forms in natural materials, typically timber and neutral upholsteries. Kogan’s work for Minotti is emblematic of his unique style of luxurious, 21st century classicism.
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.
