In the metal structure of the legs of chairs and tables of the Torii collection for Minotti, Nendo recalls the image of the "torii", the gateway to the Shinto shrines of Japan.
Hence the origin of the name of the collection which includes sofas (with high or low backrest and linear and rounded shape in correspondence with the armrests), inclined sofas with a combination of two different depths, lounge and dining armchairs and armchairs, poufs, low tables and a slender oval-shaped console to be placed in the living room.
The backs, with reduced thickness, are characterized by quilting with vertical slats and by a piping along the perimeter of the padding, which underline the couture aspect of the package. All upholstered elements can be customized with the choice of upholstery: in fabric or leather or in fabric with a leather base. The seats can be equipped with leather magazine rack worked with suitcase techniques and enriched with metal details. The end of the horizontal metal element is designed almost to hold the back and seat, recalling the dictates of the traditional Japanese Kigumi construction technique.
The fixed and swivel armchairs are designed to meet both functional and ergonomic needs, declined in the different types.
The seats - in Bergère, Large, Medium and Small versions - and the Dining and Lounge armchairs are the result of Minotti's research to best express the simplicity of the structure. The base is available in leather or fabric. Some elements feature (in the extension of the base) a fixed tray in recessed marble, Calacatta or Stone Gray painted matt polyester, made with attention to its proportions, thickness and construction details to integrate into the seat.
