We had the pleasure of seeing the Molteni&C + Dada home concept and new collections, brought to life under the creative direction of Belgian architect and Molteni &C Creative Director, Vincent Van Duysen. Both at this years Salone del Mobile Fair in Milan ‘by day’ and their showroom event at their flagship store in Borgogna, Milan ‘by night’.
So come along with us as we explore all that the wonderful brand had to offer –
MOLTENI BY DAY
This year at Salone del Mobile Milano, guests were invited to step into the world of Molteni &C to experience and explore a full home simulation designed and curated to demonstrate the concept of “A hymn to revival and well-being”.
“It’s a hymn to ethereal design, inspired by the great pavilions of the modernist era. Dynamic spaces characterized by the lightness of the lines, skillfully combined with details and materials that create softly shaped products”. – Vincent Van Duysen
Living spaces were created to communicate the importance of design to elevate comfort and promote wellbeing within the home. Living is once again central to every corner of the home, especially throughout these last few years. Life is experienced in the living areas, where the quality of the home environment is the key to the function and feeling. The cosy, reassuring and welcoming home is constantly evolving, which Molteni&C interprets through texture, screening and modular elements.
While in the previous years their exhibitions paid tribute to modernism, this year references to the evocative atmospheres of home: Focusing on the fluid homes, the large multipurpose rooms linked to one another, the internal / external thresholds and above all that, the idea of space in tune with the surrounding landscape.
“The home aspires to holistic well-being and to organic playfulness” Explains creative director Vincent Van Duysen, who is looking for lightness, fluidity and the etherial in the Molteni&C + Dada 2022 narrative project.
MOLTENI BY NIGHT
The kitchen spaces, warm cosy living settings and custom robes with integrated lighting took on a whole new form at night! The comforting ambience was transformed at their showroom cocktail party later in the week. Situated in Borgogna, the Molteni&C + Dada Milan Flagship store was filled with guests to celebrate Milan Design Week and their new collections.
“Lines and forms”, Van Duysen specifies, “search for light for a never-ending dialogue with space and with human beings. The products are conceived for revival, to live again and mitigate that sense of precariousness, to search for pleasure and happiness and to fully embrace Nature: air, light, oxygen”.
Some of our favourites from the new range have got to be – the Blevio Table, the Living Box Unit and Yoell Armchair! Design that is truly beautiful by day and by night!
