Exceptionally versatile, the Roger modular system features soft volumes, sophisticated upholstery and sartorial craftsmanship. Couture-like crafting processes are expressed in the graphic quilting effect, long horizontal lines that run along the backrests. A customised base with two cross blades in varnished aluminium elevate the sofa above the floor, giving the seats an airy aesthetic.
The system is comprised of three sofa elements, able to be freely customised with high and low backrests, different types of armrests and the option of adding elements functioning as tops and containers, jutting out at the back, or at the end, next to the seat. Capable of creating countless interpretations and configurations including special back-to-back pieces, chaise-longues with and without the Case element, the family also includes many benches of different sizes, also available with or without the Case element.
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.
