Iconic Italian design brand Molteni has opened the Molteni Museum to showcase its history, innovation, research and quality through 48 iconic products.
December 17th, 2015
Designed by Jasper Morrison the Museum covers the brand’s inception and timeline to today, with a showcasing of products and prototypes of the Group’s companies: Molteni, Dada, Unifor and Citterio.
The exhibition is enriched with new finds from the Molteni archies, and contains furniture and previously unpublished documents, drawings and designs, communication and graphic material that make it an ideal spot for any design-lover who happens to find themselves in Italy. Thankfully, through a multimedia staging and a dedicated website, the archives make can be enjoyed online too.
A dynamic space steeped in memory and design history, the museum is a place for research, but also a meeting place for local and international design communities who appreciate the legacy of design.
The building that houses the Molteni Museum was initially built as a factory at the tail end of the 1950s and used as a drying shed for wood before seeing a renovation in 1986 and again in 2004. While these renovations modernised the space, traces of its industrial past still remain, and help to add to the air of history the museum channels.
The Molteni Museum was officially inaugurated on November 20, 2015 and is now open to all.
