Leonard

Design: Rodolfo Dordoni
A project that originated from a rational thought: a seating system attained through the clustering of geometric upholstered pieces, soft as cushions, outlined with a profile trim that traces their silhouette and resting on an elegant aluminum base.

A clear-cut concept that translates to a linear design where Leonard sits in perfect balance between tradition and modernity, an expression of the company’s own aesthetic language.

The essence of Leonard is visible in the special care taken with the construction features: a series of details that emphasize its commanding character. When seated on the Leonard sofa, one is immediately aware of a pleasurable feeling of softness. The goose-down wrapped Memory Foam cushioning is used both for the structural elements and the seat cushions to create a welcoming embrace and offers the utmost in comfort. Leonard is a seating system with a versatile personality that can bring a look of elegance to any setting – from classic to contemporary – and is equally at home upholstered in fresh, modern fabrics or more decorative ones. The base of Leonard is made of an extruded aluminum frame with painted pewter-color finish. It is attached along the perimeter of the sofa, a solution which, in addition to lending an air of lightness, helps protect the upholstery. The frame is crafted to allow removal of the upholstery covering with ease, without having to disassemble the metal base.

Frame: in solid wood with high natural rubber content elastic strap webbing. Preparation of the seat frame in high resilience variable-density polyurethane foam with concave contour to cradle the cushion, maximizing softness and durability. Upper portion of armrests and backrests covered with heat-sensitive memory foam and wrapped in channeled goose down quilting. An additional casing in breathable heat-bonded fiber laminated to white hypoallergenic cotton canvas ticking lends superior softness.
Cushions: channeled goose down (certified Assopiuma, gold label) padding for backrests and cushions with center insert in high resilience variable-density polyurethane foam. Seat cushions are completely reversible.
Covers: seat cushions, backrest and structural covers are completely removable in all versions (fabric and leather). Covers come off without removing the base. Backrest and armrest covers feature piping trim around the perimeter.
Base: weight bearing and perimeter frame elements in extruded aluminum with cast aluminum joints (both are exclusive Minotti Studio designs), painted high-gloss anti-fingerprint pewter finish. Rests on nylon slides.
