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 storage units in the Superquadra family of different sizes are intended for a variety of uses, yet they all share the same minimal design, the same style - somewhere between classic rationalism and a contemporary vibe - with an airy, suspended appearance. The sideboard is available in several sizes and heights in dining, living and tall cabinet versions. All these elements host the same materials and proportions inspired by the elegant rationalism, characterising the mood of the Brasilia range.
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.
