Molteni&C official dealer

A wide range of sober and elegant furnishings characterizes Molteni & C., where comfort and high quality standards are the constant reference points. Collaborations with renowned international designers and technological innovation made Molteni&C. a benchmark for the whole furnishings industry. The history of the company began in 1934 when in Giussano the “Arredamenti Angelo Molteni” was founded, a small artisan workshop specialized in the production of furniture.

In the ‘40s, the company became one of the national furniture production leaders, with an exponential growth that brought the company to hire more than 60 employees, recruited among the best artisan workers.

Molteni&C furnishings

The ‘60s marked a turning point for Molteni&C. In 1961, Angelo Molteni was among the founders of the first Salone del Mobile (I Saloni), and seven years later, under the artistic direction of Luca Meda, the company welcomed the modern style leaving the classic furniture production. In this way, the taste furniture revolution started with the help of many famous Designers and Architects. To name but a few: Yasuhiro Itoh, author of the famous MHC.2 bookstore, Aldo Rossi and Pierluigi Cerri.

The opening up to the international market in the next decade marked a thriving period for Molteni, which enriched the furniture’s catalog with famous modular systems, modern wardrobes and storage units with technical and sophisticated products of craftsmanship such as tables, chairs and armchairs, modern sofas and beds. In the ‘80s, the Unifor brand, entirely specialized in the office furnishings, became part of the Molteni Group.

Molteni&C design

Molteni renewed the design heritage of many international Architects in the Heritage collection: iconic products made by Gio Ponti came alongside the projects of Afra and Tobia Scarpa and the Swiss Warner Blaser, who signed the historic chest of drawers MHC.1.

Today the Molteni&C Group continues to take advantage of valuable collaborations awarding prestigious awards such as the Red Dot Award for the Skin sofa signed by Jean Nouvel in 2008. Great significance also has the contributions of designers like Ron Gilad, Patricia Urquiola, Michele De Lucchi and Rodolfo Dordoni.
