Airy, with constructive details linked to Japanese tradition, the Torii Ottoman by Nendo for Minotti plays with round-edged volumes, thin profiles, and the apparent formal simplicity of an extremely detailed design. Pair this footstool with its ideal companion piece, Torii Armchair.
The metal structure of the legs of the seats and tables is Nendo’s nod to the image of the torii, the entrance gate to Shinto shrines in Japan. With an interlocking game, the horizontal elements are laid on the vertical supports, ensuring a sophisticated visual lightness that accommodates the padded volume, characterized by couture craftsmanship.
Minotti is the embodiment of the “Made in Italy” moniker—timeless design, utmost quality, and a strong, recognizable identity. Established by Alberto Minotti in 1948 in the small town of Meda, Italy, the company started as a small-scale artisan workshop and has since developed into a global enterprise and one of the most well-respected furniture brands in the world.
