Yang

Design: Rodolfo Dordoni
A young, dynamic seating system where geometric lines form an original mix of soft volumes in an unconventional rhythm of full and empty spaces.

The streamlined aesthetic style juxtaposes with the wide freedom of seating arrangements, which makes for very original design ideas. The Yang seating system is intended for a young public and can be used to create soft, cozy domestic islands where you can spend your leisure time indulging in your favorite pastimes or enjoying all-out relaxation. A defining feature of Yang is its particular “Offset” elements with the backrest offset from the seat, and which, along with its ottomans and Close side tables, add to its versatility. The various elements can be combined in a multitude of ways thanks to the ottomans which can be placed in various positions: to either extend the seating or to provide a practical table-like surface.

The rigorous architectural concept of the Yang seating system is also strengthened by the design of the base: the front section is a simple Pewter-colored aluminum bar, a finish that lends flexibility to the Yang seating system when interpreting the most different styles.

The Yang headrest is specifically designed to offer vertical support and encourages the right posture when reading and relaxing. The fine “Cambré” stitching has been used here too, for a functional element that is not only something to lean on but also an extra touch that gives an added value to the sofa.

Structure: in multi-ply wood, seat suspension is provided by elastic straps with a high rubber content.

Structure preparation: the seat structure is made of high resilience, variable-density polyurethane foam with a concave contour to cradle the cushion, maximizing softness and durability. The upper portion of the armrests and backrests is made of temperature sensitive Memory Foam. An additional casing in breathable heat-bonded fiber laminated to white hypoallergenic cotton fabric 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 cushions and structure covers are completely removable in all versions (fabric and leather). Sofa coverings can be removed without dismantling the bases.

Base: weight-bearing parts in extruded aluminum (exclusive Minotti Studio design) with high-gloss, anti-fingerprint, painted Pewter color finish. Rests on nylon slides.

N.B.: to facilitate transport and removal of covers, the armrests and backrest can be removed from the base through a system of quick set and release closures.
