Heritage Collection


A long run, with several hurdles and numerous challenges. And a feeling that it’s never enough. In fact, “know how” is no longer enough. Every single day and in every single detail, a magnificent obsession: quality.

Heritage Collection

The Heritage Collection is forwardlooking, an artistic and cultural heritage, otherwise lost, still to be enhanced. A duty of choice, a legacy to be shared. And a desire to rediscover, in the history of Molteni&C, traces of a magnificent obsession, quality. From 1934 to the present day.

The Gio Ponti collection, successfully re-made since 2012, the “Molteni80!” exhibition, the creation of the historical archive and the Molteni Museum provided the opportunity to rediscover forgotten treasures and to start from the beginning again, from the origins of modernity. In this way traces emerged of a past that turned out to be contemporary. Intuitions, directions to be explored, experimentation towards design. Artisan know-how to be interpreted with technological innovations. A noble material to be fashioned, wood, for new great classics. The first prototypes of modern furniture. Unique pieces, designed for competitions or for special projects, to be reproduced on an industrial scale and in numbered editions, signed by Gio Ponti, Werner Blaser, Yasuhiko Itoh as well as Tobia Scarpa. Great masters, associates and travelling companions of Molteni&C, by vocation, all over the world. Architects, such as the five Pritzker prize winners – Aldo Rossi, Jean Nouvel, Álvaro Siza, Renzo Piano and Norman Foster – who chose the Molteni Group to realize their most daring designs. Always avant-garde, always tradition, hand in hand.
