Distinctive to the Catlin collection of dining tables is the deliberately uncomplicated design of the base that is available in a surprising number of combinations of materials: textured black-painted metal combined with bright Chrome or bright Gold finish.
The beveled top comes in a number of shapes - round, oval and rectangular, and an assortment of finishes - from the tactile warmth of open pore Moka lacquered oak, to the refinement of polished Arabescato Purple marble and the modern feel of Smoked Grey glass.
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.
