The IOT makes its debut into the world of Molteni&C nighttime systems
The Internet Of Things joins the world of Molteni&C nighttime systems – Gliss Master and Masterdressing – with avant-garde solutions and innovations that guarantee wardrobes the best environmental quality. For taking care of clothing and accessories it is, in fact, essential to be able to exclude the presence of harmful agents – bacteria, moulds and allergens – that naturally insinuate themselves onto fabrics in contact with the environment.
AIRCUB ® – a Molteni&C exclusive – is an IOT device easily manageable from your smartphone with a dedicated APP. The air purification and perfuming system works by ionizing and ozonizing wardrobe interiors, thereby removing up to 95% of agents harmful to health, while releasing delicate fragrances.
REFRESH-BUTLER ® – concept and development of the Swiss V-ZUG – an innovative solution that combines four functions in a single device. It freshens, sanitizes, dries and irons all garments by means of a two-stage process. With photocatalysis, activated by UV lamps, it removes pollutants present in the air and on clothes. With the vapour released by micro holes in the structure, it refreshes them, neutralizes any odour and reduces creases and crumpling in suits, dresses, shirts and blouses. The device can be fitted into the wardrobe or installed as a free-standing version in a walk-in wardrobe. These are indispensable accessories for keeping wardrobes in a perfect state of health and hygiene, and for looking after objects effectively.
Patented sliding system
Technologically advanced solutions such as the flush sliding mechanisms, which feature a system of magnetic shock absorbers that cancel out the noise when they are in use. this system requires less force to open or close the door, thus improving sliding fluidity.
New internal accessories
The sophisticated pull-out shirt rack, pull-out drawers and trays, shoe racks, accessories such as the tie rack, “eco skin” jewellery case and the new led lighting system are just some of the novel ideas.
Solletico, a short film edited by Francesca Molteni and promoted by Molteni&C, harnesses animations by Era Ora and Ivana Gloria, to narrate the practicality and revolutionary structure of Gliss Master by Vincent Van Duysen, which becomes a character, but also a game that plunges the viewer into the fabulous and rather magical world of the protagonist. One can climb into the wardrobe, like a magic box, because it has no backboards as dividers, the doors rotate 180° and the interiors are so spacious there is almost room to walk. Leaving room for the imagination.

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.complete biography
