The exclusive Minotti showroom occupies 10,000 sq.ft. of hand crafted Italian furniture offering a complete life style concept. Minotti, “made in Italy” has always been known for its utmost quality and timeless design. The showroom displays the home furnishings collection as well as an outdoor collection, all of which are designed by Italian architect Rodolfo Dordoni.
As Miami’s Design District always exploding with wildly architectural storefronts and top-of-the-line flagship boutiques, luxury furniture brands are snapping up real estate as quickly as they can, hoping to capture the interest of a new crop of international shoppers furnishing contemporary homes in the city. A place you cannot miss ? Minotti Showroom in Miami Design District.
“We wanted this to be a very architectural design,” Hakakian explains, emphasizing the importance of helping customers imagine the pieces in their own homes. “We wanted people to walk in and think, ‘Wow, the furniture looks amazing in this space.’”
A large part of creating that architecture lay in what Hakakian calls sun panels—slabs of wood that stretch from floor to ceiling, creating partitions between different areas of the showroom and allowing one giant floor to exist as several enclosed rooms or vignettes that can be constantly revised. Similar spatial divides are created by thick white-lacquer walls and structural columns. Each of the “rooms”—where Minotti’s neutral, minimalist upholstery pieces gather with sleek metal tables and streamlined light fixtures—feels as if it just might be the Miami refuge for any of the jet-setters now flocking to the neighborhood.
