Moie presents the 2015 Minotti collection in Jakarta

Categories: Events

October 22 last was “Minotti Collection Day” at the Moie showroom in Jakarta. The event was related to the presentation of key pieces of Minotti’s 2015 collection. Friends of Minotti, architects, interior decorators, project managers and select members of the press attended. They discovered for themselves the many special aspects of this new collection .

This year, Minotti’s farsighted Artistic Director, Rodolfo Dordoni, has brought into his creations a new concept of softness and roundness that expresses a unique sense of comfort. Pieces on show convinced visitors by this new grammar of form combined with vivacious colours and new material patterns. The results are beautiful, atmospheric and relaxed.

The members of the Moie sales team have been struck by the positive echo that the Seymour, Yang and Leslie products evoked in their country. The sales results achieved in Indonesia, after the 2015 Milan Salone and before even a single piece of the collection had physically reached Jakarta, are no doubt a result of the team’s strong professionalism. Their sales competence is, in fact, impressive. With unfailing determination they got into the business of selling the new collection to responsive clients  and they succeeded.

Nevertheless the new Minotti collection wasn’t the only reason for excitement on October 22nd. Moie’s animated cocktail party, with its live musical background, was the social culmination of the day.

“Worldwide, Minotti’s sales are growing admirably. But success is uneven over different regions”  commented Mr. Antonio Marelli,  the Minotti Resident Area Manager for Asia, adding: “Indonesia, however, is a bustling market and we have in Moie an excellent local team working on it, so that we can expect sales to continue to rise here.”

IDFFHK: Hong Kong’s first luxury design fair promises trade boon

Categories: Events

These days, Hong Kong is a city finding its identity in the present while opening new creative vistas into the future.

The recently held International Design Furniture Fair of Hong Kong, IDFFHK, marked the city’s determination to become East Asia’s new design hub.

This first event of its kind in Hong Kong was set to spark interest in some of the best in high-end international design brands .  The exhibition was a sophisticated presentation of  furniture collections as well as lighting and lifestyle objects from East and West.

The famed French crystal producer Baccarat displayed its new, sparkling  Zenith Charleston chandelier and a special edition of the Tuile de Cristal modular chandelier, designed by Eric Levy.  The Baccarat stand was entirely furnished by Minotti pieces from the 2015 collection: a Seymour lounge, Leslie, Ashton and Cortina armchairs as well as a Dalton shelving unit.

The French Saint Louis company, founded in 1767, is Europe’s oldest “Cristallerie” and today considered to be the most sophisticated glassmaker in the world. Saint Louis displayed an exquisite range of its products, including its Royal, Quadrille, Tommy, Quart and Hulotte series.

World famous architect Zaha Hadid presented her new, pristine collection for the home. Her ravishing Crystal Architecture vases for Lalique drew much attention from visitors.

The IDFFHK was a total success and contributed much towards making cultured design more accessible to an interested regional public.

“This is a good time for us to grasp all the opportunities that we encounter to promote our business in the Asia-Pacific region. The IDFFHK can, I believe, become a strong springboard for our work, by offering us new and rewarding means of promoting our products” commented Mr. Antonio Marelli, the Minotti Resident Area Manager for Asia.
