- Art & Design
Irrelevant which style you prefer in your home, for us the key question remains the same in each interior: does it have a soul? Minus thinks the same. Custom work, conceptual ideas, and personalisation are lasting values for them. Since November 2022, their showroom in Poperinge, Belgium presents the indoor collection of Paola Lenti. This furniture is interspersed with a mature playfulness and joins our partner’s vision without any hesitation.
In Belgium, we know this Italian top designer mainly because of her outdoor furniture. Her style is innovative and her DNA full of colour. Those who are not yet familiar with the work of Paola Lenti can now immerse themselves in an indoor collection that consists of a broad range of seating furniture, tables, accessories, and carpets. Characterising for her brand are the rather prominent colour combinations and surprising lines. Each piece feels like a special find that calls to you. Special cord materials and textiles lend themselves as the foundation of a collection that resolutely transcends national borders. The designs are produced in small-scale studios where craftsmanship is the universal language. Time and again, it is remarkable how well a marriage between striking colours and simple design can work. Therefore, it is no excessive praise to say that the brand is architecture on its own. With exceptional, daring pieces several micro landscapes originate where it is pleasant and exclusive to reside.
Here, the absolute top has room for two.
The unmistakable elegance we were already familiar with thanks to the outdoor collections is here given the ideal counterweight for indoor. Inviting softness immediately attracts to lie down in a spacious sofa or make yourself comfortable in a cosy fauteuil. Although of course all pieces entice us, our eyes linger just a few seconds longer on an almost nonchalant lounge chair in beautiful navy blue, including poufs in the same colour. The collaboration between Paola Lenti and Minus resulted in a large success, among others because the brighter tints that are typical for the brand were, in this case, reduced to a rather muted frequency, in order to fully fit the tranquil balance of our partner. Here, the absolute top has room for two. At Minus, the stunning indoor collection of Paola Lenti finds a unique canvas where the pieces are shown from their best side. By filtering the more expressive shades through their own vision, Minus gifts the furniture a perfect chance to fully shine.
