Molteni Group: 80 years of fine Italian production
From tiny local business in Brianza to consolidated international brand. An exhibition to celebrate our anniversary
People say that in order to look towards the future, you must always take stock of your past, and Molteni has indeed used its past as a launching pad for affirming its high level profile, initially in Italy and later abroad.
A milestone, that of 80 years in business, which was reached and celebrated last year with the exhibition event 80! Molteni at the Modern Art Gallery in Milan. The exhibition, set up by English designer Jasper Morrison with image coordinated by Studio Cerri & Associati, has now moved to its definitive location in the Molteni Museum opened in the headquarters in Giussano.
A refined collection of iconic pieces which, when observed in chronological order, form an accurate snapshot of an important changeover period – between two centuries – for the history of Italian industry.
Craftsmanship, innovation and design: these are the three principles that summarise the long period of activity. Not to mention the many partnerships with internationally renowned designers and architects, who all chose to attend the opening night.
