For the 2023 Collection, the column domain is enriched with the new Atelier model designed by Vincent Van Duysen. Columns are elements that can be introduced across all collections, designed to embellish the kitchen thanks to their functional, equipped, and impactful niches, fully customizable.

Design Vincent Van Duysen

The version created by the Belgian designer can be left open or confined with VVD, Flair, or Stripe framed doors. The tall units follow the philosophy of customization, bringing the bespoke construction concept typical of Molteni&C. The finishes of the backsplashes, shelves, and drawers can be chosen to suit one’s needs, creating different aesthetic solutions. Shelves are available in different finishes, such as glass, ceramic, staves, eco skin, or wood.

Van Duysen adds to the already available accessories, introducing a new bottle holder in eco skin complete with cup holder, designed to offer a solution that is as practical as it is elegant for displaying drinks.

The drawer block is available in two types: with the exclusive Vionaro movement, with its patented anodized aluminium side, or with all four sides in wood. The interchange of materials and the play of solids and voids result in a dynamic and highly sophisticated proposal.

VVD door

The glass door columns are made with an aluminium frame, and open thanks to soft-closing micro-hinges, retractable and integrated into the bottom and into the base of the containers. The columns can be equipped with shelves in different finishes, to suit all environments. It is possible to insert led light on the lids and on the shelves of the columns.

Flair doors

Flair columns are made with a 19 mm thick aluminium frame, in titan or pewter finish. The doors are available in three tempered 4 mm thick glasses: transparent extra-clear, fumé and bronze. The internal shelves are available in melamine, lacquer, wood or glass finish. The doors can be opened with vertical finger recess, push-pull opening or with flush handle.


Vincent Van Duysen

Vincent Van Duysen was born in 1962, in Lokeren, Belgium and graduated in architecture at the Higher Institute of Architecture Sint-Lucas, in Ghent. From 1986 to 1989 he worked in Milan and Brussels. He opened his own studio in Antwerp, in 1990 focusing on architecture and interior design. The relationship between interior design and architecture in his work is profound. Furnishings and accessories are designed with an architectural perspective that is not limited by form, but is expressed with a careful perception of interior space and its relationship to the exterior architecture. By interpreting architecture and redefining its proportions, Van Duysen creates objects of great purity and simplicity that still retain a concrete character and solid form.
