Molteni&C是義大利著名的傢俱公司,向來結合最新的技術與傳統的手工來製作傢俱,直到七十年代與Luca Meda的合作,發展出獨特概念的組合式家具,撼動了整個產業,至今受到這個概念影響的傢俱品項不計其數,而 Molteni&C也被視為在這一領域中的佼佼者。

到了八十年代,Molteni&C已廣泛生產各類型家具,結合起來即為具功能性而且優雅的居住環境。 回顧Molteni&C的設計歷程,從典型理性出發的米蘭建築師Aldo Rossi的設計系列,到九十年代極簡派蘊含高科技的法國建築師Jean Nouvel的設計系列,一直到2004年大舉擴展國外市場的同時,Molteni&C早已展露傳統工藝與創新技術內化而不外顯的技能。每當談到Molteni&C就一定會談到內化的品質(hidden quality):技術品質、功能品質和材料品質,而這些上乘品質的存在,不尋求顯於外。


Molteni&C is one of Italy's leading furnishing companies which combines advanced technology with old fashioned tradition. From the seventies on, it has taken a distinctive direction: that of ongoing research into the modular furnishings sector, working with Luca Meda to produce a series of ideas for every room in the house, from the wardrobe to the living area to the study/ home office. Its highly successful sets of modular furnishings such as 505, Gliss5th and Pass, just to name a few, are in constant evolution. Molteni&C is considered a leader in this sector.

Over and above these success stories, Molteni&C has been producing a wide range of single pieces of furniture since the eighties which can be combined to create an elegant and functional environment. Starting from the furnishings recalling traditional ways of life typical of Aldo Rossi’s designs, Molteni&C reached the nineties with furniture designed by Jean Nouvel, where minimalism combined with advanced technology. In 2004, in parallel with expansion into foreign markets, a new “Upholstery Division” was created: based on a strong drive towards product innovation along with control over all aspects of their production and careful ongoing research into materials and upholstering. Molteni furnishings incorporate the know how of a long tradition of craftsmanship with innovative technology, useful but never shown off. When speaking of Molteni, the talk is of hidden quality, technical quality, functional quality, materials: present but often invisible.

Molteni quality is well known globally, and exports to the main world markets through a network of over 350 sales outlets. The designers who work with Molteni make elegant, comfortable furniture which is also strong and attentive to detail. Created from precious woods and thoroughly checked materials, these are furnishings which mean the client can take advantage of the wealth of choice and the unvaryinggood taste and create their own Molteni House. Single items and modular systems, sofas and armchairs are today designed for a home of sober elegance and carefree simplicity, offering solutions to the new problems posed by changes in the modern lifestyle and informatics, with the development of home entertainment and the home office. Molteni offers highly functional furnishings to house informatics systems, TV and hi-fi equipment and make it easier to use.
