Lido ArmchairBy Minotti
Designed by Italian-Danish duo GamFratesi, Lido is a comfortable basket-like nest, with a round seat.
The design is inspired by the 1950s, one of the key themes of the 2021 Indoor Collection, expressed in a seat with a continuous, enveloping curved line that defines the padded body. The line recalls the typical stylistic marks of Brutalist architecture, with cushions adding a comfortable feel. The X-shaped sculptural base is its strong distinguishing mark.
The armchair is available in one size and with two types of bases. One is the X-shaped aluminium version covered in brushed ash with a Moka open-pore lacquered finish. The other features legs in solid wood: Moka lacquered open-pore brushed ash or matt polyester lacquered Dark Brown stained Canaletto walnut. A matching footstool completes the picture.
The tops of the legs feature an interesting decorative insert in Bronze varnished steel, elegantly distinguishing the point where the legs join the frame.
The family also includes little dining and lounge armchairs - only with legs in solid wood - and coffee tables in one size that sit on the iconic X-shaped aluminium base covered in ash with a Moka varnished finish, with round or square top, in Bianconero marble or brushed ash wood with a Moka open-pore lacquered finish.
