Molteni & C Milan Design Week 2021

Molteni&C is participating in supersalone, the special event of 2021 at Salone del Mobile.Milano, with an installation designed by Ron Gilad. Innovation, creativity, cultural exchange, digital experiences. The supersalone becomes a promotor of design imagery as a place for meeting and new opportunities to reflect on the world of design and meet its new luminaries.

The Round D.154.5 armchair, designed by Gio Ponti in 1954 and reissued by
Molteni&C in collaboration with the Gio Ponti Archives, is the absolute star of the ‘Flight D.154.5’ installation. The name of this small armchair derives from the rounded shape of the seat and back, with very modern, even ‘spatial’ lines.

An entirely new product designed for industry that speaks to assembly and ease of production.

The installation directed by Ron Gilad is translated into the interior of an aeroplane, with animated windows that look out onto a sky where reality meets fantasy and the Molteni&C collections are the key players. The Round armchairs, in leather and fabric, are arranged in a line at the windows to host passengers on their trip.

On the occasion of Milan Design Week 2021, our Flagship Store in Corso Europa 2, Milan, presents the new Collection. The space is renovated, elegant and welcome its guests in sophisticated settings in dialogue with architecture.

Living Divani @ Supersalone 2021

On the occasion of Supersalone 2021, the new format that revives the charm of the Salone del Mobile in Milan experiencing new display approaches and proposing new interpretations, an installation by Piero Lissoni pays homage to the silent elegance of the brand, capable of combining geometric synthesis and daily comfort.

Exhibited on a platform, Sumo lenticular sofa designed by Piero Lissoni in 2020, featuring an audacious silhouette, sculpted in an accommodating and sinuous pose, celebrates the pure creativity of the brand, capable of shaping a collective imaginary.

A second scene is dedicated to the entire Sumo family, which in 2021 extends its inspiration, presenting a new sofa and armchair, featuring a straight base and a reclining backrest, together with low tables and benches: a skilful mix of refined fabrics, delicate leathers, charming woods and marbles, in a world of tactile suggestions where tailoring is the real protagonist.

The setting is completed with the Sailor bookshelf by David Lopez Quincoces, for a versatile interior, ideal for daily life necessities as well as working scenarios, in the idea that various situations and people could follow each other over time, finding a new way to interact with the furnishings, both dynamic and versatile.

FUORISALONE 2021: GIORGETTI OPENS ITS MILANESE SPACES TO THE PUBLIC

From 4 to 19 September, the spaces in the city recount Giorgetti lifestyle, presenting the new collections and iconic designs that come to life in the elegant settings of the Atelier in Via Serbelloni and the Store in Via Durini.

With a new look, the Atelier hosts the new collections in an evocative architectural and living dimension to send a message of positivity and restart for Italian design and the city of Milan. The 500-metre space is revealed behind the door of a flat that leads directly into a pleasant Milanese-international atmosphere.

The spaces, which follow one after the other, reveal Giorgetti’s ability to stage true complete environments: the kitchen with dining for the family, the living room, dining for guests with a second living room, the office and sleeping area with dressing room, and the outdoor area.

The second Milanese space is located in an elegant early 20th century building, a stone’s throw from the prestigious Palazzo Durini, and is the renovated Store, organised on two levels that perfectly express the philosophy of the Giorgetti spaces and lifestyle.

The Store’s spaces unfold in a perfect aesthetic balance that reveals a scenario rich in details, in which the furnishing elements create comfortable, soft and elegant atmospheres.

In both spaces, M2Atelier presents the Ensō table, made of wood and available with an elliptical or round top defined by walnut, mahogany, or leather inserts; with the Tie seats whose monolithic presence captures the attention for their details and for the seductive slit on the back that recalls some haute couture creations.

Another protagonist is certainly the new Vesper sofa designed by Roberto Lazzeroni.

It’s a concept, a system. It’s an organic sofa that moves in a certain way within the space, transforming it according to needs“, said the designer. Vesper is presented in combination with Elsa armchairs by M2Atelier.

Among the novelties 2021 present in the Atelier Giorgetti and Store, we find the Houdini cabinet by Roberto Lazzeroni, Shirley bench and mirror by Carlo Colombo, Uyuni mirror and Clamp coffee tables by M2Atelier, Summa and Otto poufs by Giancarlo Bosio and Centro Ricerche Giorgetti. In addition, new proposals from the Atmosphere collection complete the different areas with carpets, chandeliers, vases, accessories and games.

The theme of outdoor life is increasingly important in the Giorgetti lifestyle and this year the company interprets it with a design by Carlo Colombo, whose great stylistic strength blurs the boundary between indoor and outdoor. Aldìa, in fact, is a complete system of furnishings that can be used both indoors and outdoors. Armchairs, modular sofas, poufs and coffee tables are designed to define the space with elegance and give the dream of a small paradise.

Milano Design Week 2021
Paola Lenti renews her showroom and brings nature into the home

Hanging bookcases, enamelled decorated tables, seats made of innovative polymers or eco-compatible fabrics.

Paola Lenti’s showroom in Meda (via Po 100 A) is completely renovated and opens its doors to the Supersalone, the special edition of Salone del Mobile 2021. An amazing reinterpretation through colours, materials, new collections.

The large spaces overlooking the garden of the location seem to be drawn to allow nature to enter into the house, contaminating with its reflections and its nuances – greens, blues, yellows – furniture and furnishings designed for the interiors, creating a dialogue and a game of windows that breaks down the “walls” between indoor and outdoor.

In Paola Lenti’s mental geography, the home appears as a welcoming and gentle place, lively and open to the outdoors, with a sophisticated elegance, never over the top.

Tradition and research go together and blend with unexpected effects: the texture of the new tables in enamelled volcanic lava, which tell about an ancient wisdom, the pop transparencies of the innovative Twiggy yarn that talk about the new choices of sustainability and respect for the environment.

In the garden that surrounds the showroom, next to iconic pieces of the company such as Harbour, the modular sofa awarded with the Red Dot Award 2021, are the new collections such as Eres: sofas, chaise longue and outdoor beds in natural and eco-friendly fabrics, with soft and restful colours. Easily convertible into indoor complements, with a pleasant cocoon effect.   

Giancarlo Morelli, Michelin-one star chef and owner of the Bulk restaurant and the Bulk Mixology Bar in Milan (via Aristotile Fioravanti 4) to furnish the exterior of his restaurant has chosen chairs, tables and sofas by Paola Lenti in different shades and materials, with a fairy-tale effect deliberately contrasting with the “male” sobriety of the interiors.

“A sort of colourful forest that brings back to childhood” explains the chef. “The side that I most feel my own”

Salvioni’s terraces

Three ways to see the terrace, three atmospheres created with different furniture and colours. Paola Lenti illustrates her vision of greenery in the city with an installation in Salvioni’s showroom (via Durini 3 Milan). Three terraces overlooking the inner courtyard of the store, each one level, as if they were coloured snapshots that, going up the beautiful ancient staircase, finally create a panoramic view.

The “garden terrace” on the first floor plays with the green shades: a place sheltered by parasols (Ombra collection) and dedicated to relax (Ami armchairs). A few steps, and a blue oasis appears – a city-graceful style – with cosy armchairs (Nido collection), and glazed tables (Sciara).

On the third floor, where the view extends beyond the roofs, visitors will find the new Eres collection. Designed for outdoor use, but with its natural fabrics and the soothing tones of ecru, sage and dust, it pleasantly creeps into the interior spaces, occupying the volumes with the maxi sofa Frei and the clean lines of Vespucci furniture (armchairs and sofas). A natural chill-out room (raw linen, hemp delavé, bamboo and natural woods characterize the furniture), away from the buzz of the “Supersalone”.
