The Molteni Group
The Molteni Group is one of Italy’s leading furnishings companies. It consists of four companies, each one at the forefront of its sector: Molteni & C S.p.A. (home furnishings), Unifor S.p.A. (office furnishings), Dada S.p.A. (kitchens) and Citterio S.p.A.. Molteni offers global furnishing in Italy and in over fifty countries all over the world. The Group goes back a long way, starting out in the thirties as a small craftsman’s business. From the fifties on Molteni grew con- siderably, taking the decision to move into industrial production. The seventies saw the firm restructure into three separate compa- nies due to growth and market demand. Today Molteni is one of the few groups guaranteeing an integrated cycle - it has total con- trol over every aspect of production, from the choice of materials to the final definition of the product. The current four companies have developed an expansive synergy as regards technology, research, and development of new products in response to changes in the home and in the workplace. The Molteni Group has always worked in partnership with Italian and international designers of note such as Foster + Partners, Jean Nouvel, Alvaro Siza, Pier Luigi Cerri, Michele De Lucchi, Rodolfo Dordoni, Ferruccio Laviani, Luca Meda, Dante Bonuccelli, Bruno Reichlin, Aldo Rossi, Afra and Tobia Scarpa, Hannes Wettstein, Patricia Urquiola, Yabu Pushelberg, Arik Levy and Monica Armani, Ron Gilad, Matteo Nunziati.
