Concept

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.
As a new product typology, Quadrado enriches the Minotti Outdoor collection, broadening the company’s offer with a young and contemporary concept that provides new informal solutions.
The wooden bases welcome comfortable padded cushions with backrests in a special fibre woven with wicker-effect, available in Mud colour or plain Licorice 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 characterized by its broad compositional freedom. The Japanese Metabolist architecture of the Fifties and the Sixties, defined by modular volumes, inspired Kogan to develop the Quadrado concept, an ideal system to furnish large open-air spaces, even of considerable sizes, where you can immerse yourself in nature and relax.
