When you visit the furniture and design showroom of Ronchi è Abitare – a leading light for lovers of tasteful furnishings – it is impossible not to fall in love with something straightway. Of the big names on view – that can be purchased both nationally and internationally (Switzerland, France, Germany, UK – United Kingdom, Russia, China …) – it is difficult not to be struck by the Minotti style – a brand that has known how to combine skilled craftsmanship and manufacturing experience with a passion for technology to create a passport for international success.
Created by Alberto Minotti in the 1950s, and carried to success in the seventies and eighties by the brothers Renato and Roberto, Minotti has become the company adored by refined, discerning customers, thanks also to the contribution of architect Rodolfo Dordoni. Minotti is still one of the largest producers of furniture and upholstery today, owing its great success principally to two elements: technology and tradition. Machines are used to create a durable product with an excellent structure, after which products are finished by hand by expert craftsmen.
This means that every piece leaving the company is surrounded by a modern, innovative, sophisticated aura, but also retaining the full flavour of its roots – a know-how passed down from father to son, from hand to hand. A winning formula that Minotti applies to every item of furniture and to every divan in his collection. There’s no way that a brand like this could be omitted from the Ronchi è Abitare showroom. When you think of Minotti sofas, thoughts cannot but go to Rodolfo Dordoni, architect and creative director of the Minotti collections. A partnership that started in 1997 and leading to the production of the large items of furniture produced by the Milan house. Due to a highly-efficient well-organised company structure, Ronchi è Abitare operates as a dealer of Minotti divans, providing consultancy services, order fulfilment, and shipments to any part of the world, from Europe (Switzerland, Germany, France, UK – United Kingdom..) to Russia (of emerging markets, Russia is one of the most active in the purchase of luxury furnishings) and Asia, with deliveries by land, air and sea, even to China.
One Minotti divan that merits a special mention is the Hamilton seating system: a modular system with a linear design dreamt up by Rodolfo Dordoni. Hamilton is composed of a number of modules, fixed divans and other fitted units. The special feature of the Hamilton divan is its final composition that is always original and complete. Hamilton, Hamilton Sofa and Hamilton Modulo, are the trio of components composing this divan in continual evolution, that has made of its own flexibility its strength. It is incredible when you realise that a simple divan can represent the perfect synthesis of applied technology coupled with creative charm: the Hamilton divan is customisable according to personal choice, and can be adapted to any type of living context, while retaining all the while its strong personality and character.
The Minotti house takes great pride in its Hamilton divan, and we too at Ronchi è Abitare are filled with satisfaction presenting this brand in our showroom, in the knowledge that we are not exhibiting a simple divan collection but authentic design objects of unrivalled quality and style. After years of experience in the sector, we have successfully developed an international network that permits us to operate as a dealer for Minotti sofas, offering consultancy services, order fulfilment and shipment to all parts of the world: France, Germany, UK – United Kingdom (London), Russia, China, etc…
