In 1947, Angelo Molteni's furniture-making company was founded with a small workforce. By 1955, the company had expanded to 200 employees, and through encounters and innovations, they established themselves as a leading furniture manufacturer.
Molteni was one of the founders of the first Salone del Mobile in 1961 and experimented with modern designs. The breakthrough came with the modular systems designed by Tito Agnoli, Angelo Mangiarotti, and Luca Meda in 1968.
Molteni's family expanded with the addition of Dada, and they continued to innovate in the 1980s with the help of Luca Meda and Aldo Rossi.
Their vision for combining tradition and future led to the creation of products that rewrote the history of forms. Molteni's story is a testament to the power of innovation and collaboration in business.

This seating system was designed by Hannes Wettstein and combines comfort with refinement.
Settees in various sizes, corner pieces, chaises-longue and pouf can be combined together to create different furnishing solutions. Turner responds to varying needs in terms of comfort and posture, thanks to an easy mechanism which adjusts the depth of the seating.
This table, designed by Milanese architect Rodolfo Dordoni, is named after London’s Gatwick airport, a hub where cosmopolitan travellers meet every hour of the day and night on their way in or out of the U.K. capital, much like a table where people meet for dinner.
