Minotti was founded by Alberto Minotti in the 1950s. Its original craft dimensions would change soon; by the 1960s it had already developed into an industrial enterprise. The next step was taken by Renato and Roberto Minotti; between the 1970s and 1980s they made their surname into a nationally and internationally acknowledged brand.
These two Minotti brothers shared the creative line, stylistic characteristics and aesthetic principles with the architect Rodolfo Dordoni, who has been coordinating the collections ever since 1997. Minotti stands out as a manufacturer and marketer of upholstered pieces and furniture designed for sophisticated, conscious customers. Sixty years of history has made the brand a well known player in the world of international interior design. The emphasis is on a blend of tradition and the newest technology, resulting in a manufacturer that has set the benchmark for people who feel at ease with a certain refined way of approaching and enjoying their homes.
SMINK has partnered with the Minotti brand since 1999, placing their pieces of furniture in everything from Santa Fe casitas to large scale commercial projects such as Exxon Mobil Headquarters. Minotti occupies the largest real estate in our showroom with many of their soft seating models old and new displayed for clients to experience.
