The choice of materials selected for Terra and Seta, the latest models by Minotticucine, is original and surprising: cast bronze, glass and pure silk. Presented at the showroom in Via Larga, on occasion of Milan Design Week, the kitchens Terra – designed by Claudio Silvestrin, and Seta – designed by Alberto Minotti, the Brand’s designer and art director, are above all works of art, two symbols of luxury which interpret kitchen function while showcasing the value of pure material.
Terra, the collection’s “historic” and iconic model, is now available in cast bronze, thanks to a special hand finishing by the company’s specialists. Claudio Silvestrin explains the new version of Terra: “A pure force, in perfect balance between the the force of nature and human strength, an element of weight and art”: a single kitchen unit with a strong formal impact. Characterised by recessed handles and the 45° slant of tops and fronts which merge to create a block with sharp edges, the new island kitchen heralds the arrival of the “Bronze Age”, following on from the Minotticucine “Stone Age”. The brand has far from turned its back on stone, which continues to be a strong point of its products.
In addition to bronze, the company has also been seduced by two other precious and unusual materials: silk and glass. Both elements feature in the new kitchen Silk, designed by Alberto Minotti, defined by sequentially positioned glass doors, each consisting of two panels containing a silk soul. The contrasting black worktop is made from a resplendent and polished natural stone with elegant light veining.
