The signature style and architectural language of Studio mk27 are clearly visible in the design of Boteco, which plays with volumes by layering, removing and adding. With its strong identity, the Boteco family of sideboards and coffee tables fully expresses the approach taken by Kogan, who considers the planning phase of architecture, interiors and design as “part of a single process in which scale is the only difference, and where the borders separating each territory are blurred”.
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.
