Shenzhen will soon boast a Minotti showroom

The southern Chinese city of Shenzhen, which in 1980 wasn’t much more than a small fishing village, has grown explosively into a colossal industrial metropolis of 12 million inhabitants and more than 3 million registered businesses. Shenzhen is now roughly the same size as Hong Kong and Singapore combined. Renowned Chinese hi-tech firms such as Tencent and Huawei have settled here.

The Shenzhen People’s Congress Delegate, Yang Qin,  recently said that technology and not labour-intensive production or asset investment is the best engine to boost local economic growth in this conurbation.

Minotti is currently setting up a new, 900 sqm, double-floor showroom in Shenzhen, which is expected to open in August next.  It will be managed by Domus Tiandi, the company that already operates Minotti’s showrooms in Beijing and Shanghai.

Guided by the company’s Artistic Director, Roberto Dordoni, Minotti’s design and production endeavors hinge on a simple but potent ethos: ‘Creation Through Collaboration’. There is in fact a great productive strength at Minotti that arises from the powerful spirit of cooperation reigning among all those who work for the company .

The design of the impressive 2018 collection comprised numerous concepts, plans, elements and models developed by Roberto Dordoni together with design stalwarts Nendo, Marcio Kogan and Christophe Delcourt.

The breadth of Minotti’s offering, which leads beyond indoors furnishing, is highlighted by the numerous available outdoor elements for rooftop and garden environments. The availability of special outdoor fabrics implies that collection pieces can be fully upholstered and used indoors as well as outdoors.

Minotti can deliver appropriate finishes and fabrics not only for private, contract and hospitality applications but also for offices, schools, universities, hotels, restaurants, leisure and healthcare sites.

The new MORGAN marble tables, which were introduced at the 2018 IMM Cologne trade fair, fuse elegantly with Minotti’s furnishing repertoire. They are crafted from magnificent Italian Calacatta marble, with its characteristic rich patterns of bold veining on a crisp, white background.

MORGAN marble tables are available in 160, 180 and 200cm diameter sizes. An optional item is the revolving marble tray, mounted on the top at the table center.

Smallest details, right down to the shape of supporting and framing elements, have been carefully considered in order to make these tables suitable both for formal spaces as well as more relaxed family lounges.

The LAWRENCE / CLAN sofas with their smooth, full-length backrests are an excellent option of compact proportions, providing a maximum of comfort and versatility in a limited space. Movable backrest cushions can be placed loosely and arranged in numerous ways to create layouts that meet specific comfort requirements. Basic unit sizes of the LAWRENCE / CLAN sofas are 224×112 and 168x112cm.
