Un emplacement prestigieux, une visibilité internationale au cœur du Museum District, qui rejoint celui de Shaftesbury avenue, ouvert en 2008 à Covent Garden, reflétant le rôle central de Londres dans le scénario du design contemporain.

“A project that succeeds in the search for good living by understanding the architectural making. This leads to feeling at ease in one of the most vibrant cities of the world, London. It is an honour to represent together with Molteni Group the quintessence of Italian design by creating a unique momentum in the city of bankers and creators.” Vincent Van Duysen.

The space encloses the very latest offering of the Group’s two brands: Molteni&C and Dada, and symbolises a life marked by Italian flair with the intimacy of a private home. The concept defining this space – measuring over 700 square metres with five shop windows – is played out over two levels linked by a dramatic staircase. The new architectural design is faithful to the original features of the building: it has maintained its sense of space and preserved the perception of its original design from the late 1800s.

The separating walls subdivide generous volumes, interspersed by tall travertine marble-clad portals. Each zone provides a stunning backdrop for items instantly recognisable as Vincent Van Duysen’s signature designs.



A particularly breath-taking entrance, built on an inner door opens on to two floor-to-ceiling glass screens. A magnificent iconic staircase then appears, the walnut cladding of which complements the travertine marble steps. The same marble used for the portals.

This high-impact scenic space contains, frames and enhances the products of the new collections designed by Vincent van Duysen, Rodolfo Dordoni, Ron Gilad, Foster + Partners, Jean Nouvel and Patricia Urquiola, amongst others. The first floor features the Group’s iconic pieces. The Paul seating system and the wall-system Grid, the VVD kitchen, the Gliss Master wardrobe system and the Albert sofa are effectively showcased in each setting, alternating between Gio Ponti’s final creations and a choice of pieces from the Heritage Collection. The lower floor, defined by a cornice of structural niches, individually lit and furnished like the wings of a theatre, is accessed by the downward staircase, and it opens into a large living-room featuring the Turner sofa, Gio Ponti’s D.156.3 armchairs and the Password system plus the new AVA bookcase by Foster+Partners.

A large space is reserved for the kitchen area with a scenographic Prime kitchen alongside a sophisticated 505 wall set up as a Wine Cellar. Completing thearea is a monumental Armani/Dada Slide kitchen.
