An eclectic creator, which includes a worldwide exclusive for re-making and marketing all the furniture designed by Gio Ponti, except for the rights granted to other manufacturers, Molteni&C has launched a plan designed to bring the vital research conducted by the great 20th century maestro in over 50 years of work in various fields – architecture, design, applied art and publishing – back into the limelight.

The re-edition project gave rise to a collection of furniture that in some cases referred to models designed by Ponti as unique items or small series, presented for the first time at the 2012 Salone del Mobile in Milan, after a lengthy process of research and selection into Ponti’s prototypes. The collection, made in cooperation with the Gio Ponti Archives and with the art direction of Studio Cerri & Associati, includes furniture and accessories designed by Gio Ponti between 1935 and the 1970s, which today belong to the Molteni&C Heritage Collection. The Collection has been further enhanced with new pieces every year and today includes 14 items of furniture, in 21 variants.
