Molteni&C made its debut in outdoor furniture, in an offering that reimagines the comfort of the Indoor Collection for living en plein air and projects by several partners of Molteni&C, past and present, informed by extensive material research to ensure durability and a sustainable approach.
The Outdoor Collection encompasses several concepts that exist under a singular organic vision. The Landmark Collection, for example, features a highly anticipated reissue of famed designer Luca Meda’s classic Palinfrasca Sofa, a marvel of Italian savoir-faire and fine craftsmanship.
Vincent Van Duysen’s Timeout Collection is inspired by the smooth forms of Modernist architecture, such as the strip of burnished painted aluminum that shapes all the structures; the Heritage Collection comprises a reissue of two of Gio Ponti’s most beloved armchairs D.150.5 and D.154.2 and finally, two exceptional standalone pieces - the Arc table by Foster + Partners and the Panna Cotta coffee tables by Ron Gilad - which dialog seamlessly with the collection as a whole. Tying the collections together are new rugs by Van Duysen himself, Nicola Gallizia and Marta Ferri, who also curated a sophisticated original Outdoor textile collection, defined by subtle patterns, rich fabrics and warm tones.
