Minotti - Quadrado furniture collection

Wooden grids make modular outdoor furniture

Italian brand Minotti combines angular teak platforms with wicker-effect woven backrests in a modular outdoor seating collection designed by Brazilian architect Marcio Kogan.

The collection was inspired by 1960s Japanese Metabolist architecture, a movement focused on creating grid-like urban landscapes out of modular blocks.

The wooden bases of the Quadrado collection are produced using CNC machines and assembled at a precise temperature to protect the rich colour of the teak. The bases can be used as seats or tables and you can top them with padded cushions and add metal backrests wrapped in a wicker-effect fibre. There‚Äôs a corner piece with backrests on two sides and a round ottoman so you can create any arrangement of seats interspersed with flat gridded surfaces.

Marcio also designed lava-stone trays, teak candle holders and cushions in two different sizes, all with the same angular composition and warm aesthetic of the furniture.
