Minotti is an Italian company with a solid reputation at an international level as an excellent expression of “Made in Italy” in the field of contemporary furniture design and ambassador of a classic-modern lifestyle in the residential and hospitality segments.
The company was established in 1948 and born out of the intuition of Alberto Minotti. The small scale artisan workshop grew quickly and, starting from the Sixties, became more industrialized in character and size. The next step was taken by Renato and Roberto Minotti, who, after the premature death of their father in 1991, took over the reins of the company and began a process of growth and expansion into the international market
s. Responsible for the corporate strategy, since 1998 they have shared their creative vision and aesthetic key-principles with the architect Rodolfo Dordoni, who has been assigned the strategic role of coordinator of all the company collections.
Central to the Minotti identity is the full expression of the “Made in Italy” concept, which today permanently melds tradition and innovation: the skills of talented artisan are employed to finish a product created by modern technologies, while the intelligence of the hands balances industrial precision with sensitivity and emotion. This high degree of know-how is constantly improved by the intensive research on materials and technological solutions thus enhancing the value of impeccable details. The commitment to excellence involves all the company.
Over the years the company has conceived a specific “Minotti code”, that has become a constant feature of every collection, always following the key principle of “innovation in the spirit of continuity”. Deeply rooted in the company's DNA, it is linked to the principles of aesthetic understatement, timeless elegance, continuity in the sign of tradition, artisan savoir-faire with great attention to sartorial details.
The story of the family is moving forward. The same dedication and long-term vision, that has marked the success of the company over its seventy years, has also been shared by the third generation: in the forefront, Alessio, Alessandro and Susanna who are facing the challenges of the third millennium, of the digital and multicultural world.
