Powell, or the quintessential modern-day sofa as Minotti sees it: Welcoming, refined and informal. A seating system with fixed and sectional seats, designated to cater to a natural desire to relax. The fine balance of proportions, sartorial craftsmanship, every detail in Powell harks back to the style that has become Minotti's identity. The aluminum base is a detal that cannot go unnoticed also of its extra-glossy finish in an exclusive range of colors - sand, celadon, granite, plum and pewter - thus offering out-of-the ordinary and sophisticated color combinations that match with the upholstery. The sofa appears to be slightly raised from the ground, almost suspended. Comfort is a must-have in every Minotti Sofa. And in order to make Powell even more comfortable, a saddle hide head-rest has been provided, that can easily be placed near the arm and backrest and used to support the cushion, to offer the right support and maximum comfort. The head-rest is available in Mud, Chestnust, Tobacco and Black. An aluminum frame runs along the entire perimeter of the sofa, creating a sharp contrast with the softness of the seating, while also protecting the lower part of the sofa. Equally impressive are the corner frame joints in die-cast aluminum. The rigor of a technical material like aluminum is softened by the use of the five color shades in extra-glossy finish - Sand, Celadon, Plum, Granite, Pewter - which recur as a Leitmotif in the 2012 Collection. The master craftsmanship is shown to perfection in the detailing such as the sofa profile that forms a teardrop in the corner with a 45Ў joint. The relaxed elegance of the Powell Project is expressed in its simple styling and stands out in a meticulous craftsmanship with down feather padding both for the single seating cushion and for the backrest cushions, which makes for a very comfortable sofa. Thre precision of the profile that runs along the upper side of the sofa base and the sleek aluminum frame define its design and highlight its lightness.
