    PRODUCT WATCH: QUADRADO modular seating by Minotti Outdoor

    The Quadrado range sits in the Lifescape Collection by Minotti Outdoor, which reflects a new approach to outdoor living without compromising on comfort, quality and aesthetics…

    Each piece of furniture in Minotti’s Lifescape Collection is characterful and elegant, and ties in with natural settings, with unexpected patterns and colours creating a landscape in dialogue with the architecture, in the name of pure relaxation.

    Collection after collection, Minotti’s vast outdoor selection offers a range with an increasingly versatile international style, taking design motivation and inspiration from leading designers and architects, interpreters of diverse styles and features. As unique outdoor solutions of guaranteed quality in increasingly high-performing materials, they not only fit their natural residential context, including smaller urban outdoor spaces, but are also perfect for exclusive hotels, spas and yachts: spaces characterised by an approach to interior design that references the domestic one.

    Designed to perfectly complement each other stylistically, in order to meet the needs of different spaces with originality and versatility, the various furnishings stand out for their formal details and refined aesthetic, as well as finish and texture.

    In this regard, the design interpretation of Marcio Kogan / studio mk27 with the Quadrado modular seating system, launched in 2018, offers generously sized seating with modules of 102x102cm that can be assembled together, to furnish large open spaces. Floating bases in natural teak, backrests enveloped in a special woven fibre and soft cushions mark this out as an extremely appealing seat.

    Inspired by the classic teak duckboard used in the yachting industry to facilitate the outflow of water, the Brazilian architect Marcio Kogan developed Quadrado, a modular system consisting of suspended square platforms that furnish outdoor spaces with exceptional lightness and flexibility.

    A flexible and dynamic furnishing, of undisputed quality and comfort, which perfectly dialogues with the surrounding environment: a young and contemporary proposal that invites informal and original solutions.

    The wooden bases welcome comfortable padded cushions with backrests in a special fibre woven with wicker-effect, available in Mud colour or plain Liquorice colour. The sitting elements are interspersed with wooden surfaces that feature trays or candle holders, that can be arranged as desired with a surprising interlocking effect. A circular armchair joins this outdoor landscape characterised by its broad compositional freedom.

    For the concept, Kogan was inspired by the Japanese Metabolist architecture of the Fifties and Sixties, defined by modular volumes. Originally conceived for large living areas with 102×102 cm modules, Quadrado now integrates within its range a new, more compact version with 87×87 cm modules that can be combined together to adapt to more limited urban, residential and Hospitality contexts.
