Italian Furniture Maker Shows How to Adjust to PH Market
If local retailer Ferdinand Ong asked other Italian furniture companies to produce a Lazy Susan—a table with a rotating tray—for his clients, they would wince. But not his principals, Minotti, the company famous for its progressive craftsmanship, advanced technology and timeless and elegant designs.
Meet Ferdie Ong, Manila’s purveyor of sleek Italian home style
Ferdie Ong knows the value of good furniture, and one must always opt for the best “if you really value your time,” he tells us over Monday lunch that begins with a minestrone and ends with a matcha flan. What the 40-year-old means to say is, when top quality can afford you years of comfort and durability, inferior brands only waste your time looking for missing parts and repair shops when the wear and tear of your accent chair starts to prematurely show.
70 years of ‘the Minotti look’
As interior design lookbooks go, this one has been very consistent for the past 70 years. Its aesthetic of clean lines and attention to detail in every piece they produce, whether it’s a sofa released decades ago or just two years ago, results in a timeless, cohesive look in any space.
BANG & OLUFSEN
This new Bang & Olufsen baby is a furniture piece and powerful speaker in one
The Beosound Edge’s design is inspired by the one-pound British coin, and is as much a furniture piece as it is a powerful, beautiful speaker. A minimalistic, elegant design belies the acoustic prowess within, featuring a 10” woofer driver, and twin 4” midrange and ¼” tweeters on either side of the coin, totaling a massive 800 watts of power.
Luxury brand showcases new audio masterpieces
BeoSound Edge doesn’t look like any speaker I have seen. It has drivers delivering sound out of either side of the speaker and an aluminium ring wrapped around the outer edge. It supports Airplay 2, GoogleCast, DLNA and Bluetooth.
