Concept

A faceting effect livens up and interrupts the cubism that sets the morphology of the West seating system apart from the clichés of modern design. Characterised by its suitability for use in a wide range of different contemporary and traditional arrangements, West also features glints of pure creativity, such as the chaise- longue, available in pentagonal or hexagonal form and the elements that stand out for their striking backrests in saddle hide, ergonomically shaped to rise and support the rear cushion.
True elements of surprise, they break up the compositional layout, creating a stylistic point of interest, and interrupting the continuous effect of the fabric covering, visually lightening the volume at the rear. A solution designed to optimise both look and form, created with the know-how about design and the savoir-faire associated with fine tailoring that have always distinguished the Minotti brand.

Every element of the seating system is made with exquisite goose down padding to ensure maximum comfort, features cushions finished with a piping that defines their profile and a distinctive aluminium strip, slightly rounded at the edges which skims the floor, in a brand new polished Brandy colour finish.
It is interesting the possible combination with the Side coffee tables - with their frame in saddle hide that evokes that of the backrest -, with the Amber low unit - with which it enters into a harmonious dialogue in terms of both colour and shape - and with the Clive console tables - which play around with surfaces, even setting one over another.
The combination of the two looks of West, one with backrest in saddle hide and the other more conventional version with padded backrest and armrest - creates original arrangements and unusual textural and colour pairings, with saddle hide taking centre stage in a range of new, exclusive colours.
