When it comes to design, Italy is recognized as a worldwide trendsetter and leader, from interior to fashion and from furniture to industrial design.
The Mingotti-Zaker group was formed in order to offer consultancy and services to those who looking for that ‘Italian touch’ within their interior spaces and ‘Italian style’ to their furniture. The group was founded by the architects Andreas Mingotti and Reza Zaker and works within an international body of experts in the field of furniture and interior design.
The two architects first collaborated on the renovation projects of an exclusive villa in Monte Carlo and a luxury apartment in Milan. This was during Zakers time at the architect studio of Riva, a well-known jet society architect from Milan. Riva was involved in the creation of the exclusive shop interiors of the Italian fashion designer Gianfranco Ferré, and he is now collaborating with the famous jewellery brand Vhernier, designing its exclusive boutiques.
Currently the group focuses on hand-picking a selection of different Italian furniture pieces to provide clients with the perfect selection of items, from lounge-sets to kitchen and office furniture. With a professional architectural and design vision and in collaboration with prominent producers and craftsman, the group provides clients with a high level of personalisation on items with the ultimate Italian grandeur and quality.
