Molteni & C
The story of a family, a legacy and a passion for things beautiful and for finely crafted furniture, a culture forged and nurtured within the firm. This is how it has always been, for Molteni&C. Since 1934, when it started out as a joinery workshop eager to exhibit its furniture at the Monza Biennali, which later became the Milan Triennali, and to make its debut in the world of art and culture, attracting the attention of the critics and of an increas- ingly international public.
Today the Molteni Group is one of just a few to guarantee the entire pro- duction cycle “made in Italy”: from the choice of materials right through to defining the product, thanks to production pro- cesses certified according to the most stringent international standards. The companie has achieved great synergy in terms of technologies and research, as well as innovative solu- tions in line with the changes taking place in both the home and in the workplace.
Unique pieces, designed for competitions and special projects, to be brought back to life in series, in limited editions, signed by Gio Ponti, Werner Blaser, Yasuhiko Itoh, Afra and Tobia Scar- pa. Great designers and travelling companions of the Molteni Group all over the world live side by side, under the creative direction of Vincent Van Duysen, with today’s icons, including 6 Pritzker prizewinners – Jean Nouvel, Alvaro Siza, Foster + Part- ners, Herzog & de Meuron, Renzo Piano, Pierluigi Cerri, Rodol- fo Dordoni, Patricia Urquiola, Ron Gilad, just to mention a few.
