Minotti introduced the latest addition to their stable of designers at Salone del Mobile. Inoda + Sveje was formed by Osaka born Kyoko Inoda and Danish Nils Sveje in 2000. Their Milan based studio and gallery draws on their respective nations traditions of expert craft, refinement and simplicity. These traditions trace a connection back to the 19th Century Scandinavian infatuation with Japanese design and their meticulous approach towards woodworking. This history is often reflected in Inoda + Sveje’s work with ultimate sophistication, careful detailing and craftsmanship as well as the respect for natural materials that is exemplified through both culture’s design heritage.
