2021 NEW COLLECTION

The Molteni&C|Dada style has always been related to the protagonists of the world of architecture. Great masters of present times who design cities, spaces, interiors and furnishings, such as Aldo Rossi, Jean Nouvel, Foster + Partners, Michele De Lucchi, to name but a few.

Mood 2021

The narrative project for Casa Molteni&C|Dada 2021, designed by our creative director Vincent Van Duysen, is intended as a tribute to two great protagonists of one of the most creative seasons of Italian architecture and design. Two figures who were simultaneously, but with their own independent languages, interpreters of the Modern Movement that started with the revolution of Rationalism: Ignazio Gardella and Carlo Scarpa.

Round D.154.5 design Gio Ponti

More than 60 years after the original idea, Round (D.154.5) was reborn thanks to the Heritage Collection reissue project by Molteni&C, in collaboration with the Gio Ponti Archives.

Round D.154.5 design Gio Ponti

The project name, Round D.154.5, comes from the rounded shape of the seat and backrests, also referred to as the ‘soap bar’.

Round D.154.5

Round D.154.5 is also referred to as ‘Otto Pezzi’ (Eight Pieces) in the Ponti/Fornaroli/Rosselli study. A totally new product, an industrial design, thought for a world where we talk about assembly, ease of production.

Round D.154.5 design Gio Ponti

There are eight pieces that make up the chair: backrest, seat, two curved plywood elements and four legs, which screw into the seat to hold the whole thing together.

Round D.154.5 design Gio Ponti

Full production began in 1956/1957 and it was officially presented at the 11th Milan Triennale in 1957 (Feal Pavilion), along with other innovative Ponti furnishings, in a limited number of examples

Round D.154.5

Characterized by avantgarde materials and technologies, such as the Vipla for the upholstery.

 Round D.154.5

Gio Ponti was very fond of this chair and often used it to furnish his architectural projects such as the Italian Cultural Institute in Stockholm (1957); the Parco dei Principi Hotel in Sorrento(1960); the villa Planchart (1955) and the villa Arreaza/Diamantina(1956), to mention a few.

 Round D.154.5

Molteni&C offers Round D.154.5 featuring a wooden structure of multi-layered ash and black chrome or brushed brass feet.

 Round D.154.5

The Round D.154.5 armchair can be covered with all textiles and leathers of the Molteni&C. collection.

 Round D.154.5

As with all the projects in the collection, the careful study of drawings, photos and period materials has made it possible to faithfully reproduce the Round Armchair

Salone del mobile Salone del mobile

“The Round armchair was initially conceived by Gio Ponti in 1954. At that time, the design of this armchair was holding together all the energy, positivity and enthusiasm of the following decade." 
- Salvatore Licitra

The D.859.1 table, designed primarily as a meeting table for up to ten people, stands out not only for its impressive size—over 3,60 meters long—but especially for its simple yet refined design.

Ponti designed this easy chair with slight variants for these ships.
