Designed like a jewel that pairs stone and brass, Brink has a refined aesthetic with dynamic geometries. The irregularly shaped top is an interesting combination of two pieces of granite with an interlocking cut, like pieces of a tangram: a slab of Nero Assoluto granite is juxtaposed with a sheet of grey Vermont granite. The textured surface is enriched by the addition of a brass insert with satin finish near the join.
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.
