Molteni Milano: high quality Italian products, handmade since 1934
Molteni furniture has been a synonym of elegance, high quality and first rate design for over 80 years. Preserving its artisanal origins while keeping up with the new millennium and its modern horizons, Molteni is the perfect example of Italian excellence in the furniture world.
Molteni Milano’s history matches the history of Italian high quality furniture: it was Molteni, for example, that introduced the modern dresser in Italy, and the company has been at the forefront of innovation since the 50’s. During that period, in fact, it was already ahead of time thanks to its innovative and elegant bookshelves. Angelo Molteni, artisan and brand creator, is amongst the founding fathers of the “Salone del Mobile”, and it is also thanks to his efforts that Italian furniture keeps evolving and remains at the forefront of cutting edge design, continually fit for clients searching unquestionable elegance.
Molteni’s roots as an artisan are revived today through the company’s attentive and precise furniture production. Attention to tradition and detail, typical of the Italian artisan, are combined with a constant push towards modern innovation: the results of this bountiful union are sofas, wardrobes and furniture capable of transforming rooms into exquisitely elegant spaces.
Molteni furniture: combining air and lightness
Molteni Milano’s wardrobes and bookshelves are immediately recognizable by their elegance and simplicity: airy and linear designs are combined with ample possibilities of personalisation, creating furniture pieces perfectly shaped to each client’s needs. This design philosophy is exemplified in the Gliss Master wardrobe system, designed by Vincent van Duysen and also available as a walk-in closet. The suspended drawers, together with the glass back and glass doors, turn the wardrobe into a unique example of elegance and lightness. Furthermore, a client desiring a more robust wardrobe has the option of choosing the Scratched Bronze or Silice finishes. Molteni Milano does not overlook, in this and in other wardrobes, small yet important details like faux leather handles and shelves, and offers the option of led lighting inside the wardrobe, giving the product a particular and distinct style.
Molteni beds: personalized rest
Vincent van Doysen is also the creator of the Anton, a Molteni bed designed to give you the best sleep experience. The design eliminates all superfluous elements and couples delicate lines with a pronounced stitching that highlights the body of the bed, making it a piece of furniture that is elegant, but also simple and cozy, perfect to to relax on after a long and tiring day. Featuring removable upholstery also makes it possible to pair this Molteni bed with many different Molteni pieces of furniture sporting the same covering.
Another distinctive Molteni bed is the Fulham, named after Fulham Road in London. This wooden based bed is designed by Roberto Dordoni to match to any bedroom, thanks to the choice of different woods available. The headboard gently wraps around the head of the sleeper, giving them a welcoming and embracing sensation. This comfy piece of furniture is completed by a bench to be placed at the feet of the bed
Molteni tables: the art of furniture
Molteni Milano inherited the tradition of handmade Italian furniture, but is also always looking towards the future and searching for the most innovative options through its original designs. This constant search for new and exciting ways to innovate form and function is demonstrated in the Mayfair table line, also designed by Roberto Dordoni. These pieces of Molteni furniture take the love for geometric shapes out of the mathematical world and straight into the homes of their most exacting clients. By doing so, the Molteni tables find themselves treading along the fine line that separates high quality furniture from art itself. Table legs in trapezoid and sawn-off pyramid shapes are combined with eucalyptus wood and glass panels to create unique tables, able to turn dining or living rooms into modern art galleries. Keeping in line with the possibility of personalisation, emblematic of Molteni furniture, this collection includes tables in a variety of sizes, making it possible to find the perfect piece for every room in every home.
High quality materials, elegant solutions, vast possibilities of customisation and cutting edge design: these are the fundamental concepts of Molteni furniture. You can find the entire Molteni Milano collection on our Sag80 website.
