Molteni was founded in 1934 in Giussano, Brianza, just a few kilometres from Milan. The artisan’s workshop grew into a company and then into an international group, always combining innovative technology with traditional craftsmanship. In the 1950s, Molteni was a leader in the manufacture of classic bedroom furniture, before the mid-1960s brought a turning point. These were the years of Italy’s economic boom and change was in the air: it was the beginning of design on an industrial scale. Influential architects, interior designers and technical experts contributed to the products and their production, designing projects and refining prototypes in the factory.
Major assignments for the international contract market include the reconstruction of the Teatro la Fenice in Venice, Italy, cruise ships for major cruise companies, hotels and apartment hotels all over the world.
