Albert is a brave step forward in the search for a seating system conceived as a flexible and disarticulatable structure, that can reshape the new complexity of modern living, marked by extreme planning. The basic feature is that all the component parts, each with their own formal and functional autonomy, have been designed as parts of different spaces and different functions.
Elain, is a cosy, curvacious, little armchair designed to fit easily into any setting. Consisting of just two parts, a seat and a backrest, which come together to form a perfectly rounded object that invites you simply to sit down. Ideal for use alongside sofas also designed by Vincent Van Duysen, or even on her own as a comfy armchair or with a twin to create discreet little conversation corners.
In 1958 Gio Ponti was enlisted to design the auditorium for the Time & Life Building at 1271 Avenue of the Americas in New York. The building housed the headquarters of Time Inc., publisher of influential, historical magazines such as Time, Life, Fortune, People, and Sports Illustrated – the cream of American publishing. Ponti designed the entire auditorium, including the interior and the furnishings. The D.859.1 table, designed primarily as a meeting table for up to ten people, stands out among the auditorium furnishings not only for its impressive size—over 3,60 meters long—but especially for its simple yet refined design.
This solid wooden chair made of two finishes, Natural Ash and Black Stained Ash, features harmoniously linked lines onto which the seat and backrest, both also made of wood or covered with bonded hide leather, are placed. “My focus is on achieving “airy” sections in order to reduce the material used to a minimum, not wasting wood, which is such a precious material.” Francesco Meda
The particular feature of modular systems is the ease with which a few basic elements can be combined to provide valid and seamless furnishing solutions. Grid, designed by Vincent Van Duysen, fully satisfies this criterion of infinite modularity. Grid is a new research chapter in what are known today as modular wall-systems. Research into the evolution of domestic space, also thanks to the presence of electronic devices that extend the perception of space.
The sophisticated beauty of these soft surfaces is the result of a deliberate contrast between the simplicity of the design and decorative detail and the richness of the material. Slender alternating stripes of wool and silk create geometric backgrounds in shades of tone-ontone colours that delicately reflect the light. Harmonious balance between rigour and form.
Teorema, presented at last year’s Salone del Mobile.Milano, and winner of the Wallpaper design Award 2018 in the Best Twist Action category, is evolving towards new forms of home furnishings. Ron Gilad, faithful to the original design that sees Teorema as a collection based on the geometric form of a void, turns the chest of drawers featuring rotating elements in space into a storage unit where containment and open glass parts are stacked to create a single solid with a densely faceted surface.
Hugo is a complement, a collection of versatile and contemporary accessories, but with firm roots in tradition. It is distinguished by severe proportions and classic quotations, by the tactile value of wood. But such memories are ruffled by a contemporary breeze that brings an air of simplicity and the tension of “Less is more”.
Vincent Van Duysen’s approach for his second collection is solid, based on the presence of building-like compositional forms and on the skillful use of the materials of which he is an undisputed interpreter. Hence Ratio, a modular kitchen where structure is the undisputed protagonist. “The kitchen is developed over two layers: the structural layer, consisting of the uprights, and the surface layer. The interplay of vertical and horizontal lines gives the product a strikingly graphic and architectural expression, characterised by the scansion of the vertical uprights and by the doors and rear surfaces.” Vincent Van Duysen
Metal grids define the basic architecture, wall units, columns, hoods and accessories. Full volumes, empty volumes and tops of different thicknesses are hooked to the slender and minimal techno/structural elements, creating an elegant interplay of balances. Material research is oriented to warmth and to Mediterranean features, with a pleasing alternation between sophisticated woods and natural stone.
A bridge-shaped wooden frame, with a double inclination outline and a sophisticated joinery technique, enables the legs and the load-bearing beam of the table to be joined.
The design is based on a built-in padded seat, open or complete with armrests, the stiff polyurethane frame of which can be fully upholstered in textiles or leather, or alternatively the two materials that highlight the wrap-around shape of the chair. The seat can have three types of bases made of different materials such as wood or metal in two versions, making Barbican perfect for use in diverse contexts.
Grid is a modular system characterized by a wall-anchored folding panel system, inside which, on request, LED lighting can be installed, both in the central part and at the top, all the way down, along with various connections linked to sounds and images and hi-tech equipment. The aim is to achieve a flexible open system based on a modular grid, which organizes the component parts and exalts their function.
Completing the textile range, a choice of accessories, blankets and bedding coordinates, to enrich the Molteni&C bed collection. For blankets, in the winter version, the range includes double wool with nubuk edging in warm dove grey and browns. The offering is completed with a summer version in fresh, reassuring colours.
Attico is a collection of coffee tables featuring a sophisticated simplicity of lines, available in a choice of top quality materials. Even when an object is defined, technology intervenes to guarantee its purpose as a useful instrument for building the shape of the environment and for suggesting a different way of approaching the home space.
Adrien expresses a desire to present a new series of storage units, conceptually avant-garde both in technological and in aesthetic terms. Adrien is a fortunate combination of purity of form and exclusive materials and technologies, blended harmoniously and with a focus on key visual and tactile aspects. This new system of storage units develops the concept of rigorous containers defined by absolute transparency.
The Internet Of Things joins the world of Molteni&C nighttime systems – Gliss Master and Master Dressing – with avant-garde solutions and innovations that guarantee wardrobes the best environmental quality. For taking care of clothing and accessories it is, in fact, essential to be able to exclude the presence of harmful agents – bacteria, moulds and allergens – that naturally insinuate themselves onto fabrics in contact with the environment.
A new collection of poufs with a simple but sophisticated design. Two different and complementary versions, both featuring generous and rigorous geometric shapes, enriched by the elegant backstitched seat. A raised version in which the seat is supported by a pewter-finish metallic base. Or the more reassuring geometry of the floor version, embellished by an almost invisible pewter-finish metal frame. Two different dimensions for both the designs, to meet the multiple requirements of contemporary furnishing.
Kensington is a relaxing armchair with enveloping lines and calibrated proportions that you can simply sink into when you want to chill out or have a chat with friends. The all-in-one frame, complete with generous armrests, supports an ergonomic seat that guarantees comfort. Two versions, tall and low, and a practical footrest complete the collection.
