Object of Desire: Miniforms, Venice, Italy
‘Craftsmanship is a family heritage’ – here’s why we love Miniforms’ artistic yet innovative furnishings.
Italian craftsmanship has a strong legacy. That’s why we love Miniforms’ ability to bring a fresh perspective while honouring the skills of traditional makers. Their pieces have always brought originality to the furniture space, from their very first designs – brought to life in the 1970s – to the modern pieces available now, and revered by tastemakers worldwide. Their motto is ‘making craftsmanship last’, so while machines help them, it’s the hands of their multiskilled and multi-passionate makers that do the hard work – from glass blowers to carpenters and upholsterers. It’s these craftsmen who are at the heart of everything Miniforms does, with their talent honed and appreciated at every opportunity.
Each collection Miniforms creates starts the traditional way, from sideboards to chairs and lighting pieces. They infuse each one with creativity and innovation, ensuring functionality is never lost, before adding just the right amount of quirk – statement pieces that are still easy to style and use. The Botera, an unusual floor chair, is comfortable, padded and practical, with a fun silhouette that doesn’t play by the rules. While the Caruso is a carefully crafted sideboard with a built-in, bold speaker that connects to your smartphone.
