Living in Nature

Two collections, separate but harmonious, unite the voices of multiple design partners into one distinctive aesthetic. Creative Director Vincent Van Duysen’s vision for the first Molteni&C Outdoor collection honors the brand’s legacy while pushing it forward into new, open spaces.

A Delicate Dialog

“Just as in the 2022 indoor collection for Molteni&C, the new outdoor proposal I again pursued an idea of softness and wellbeing, of organic playfulness in an architectural vision of the furniture. I was inspired by modernism to recall the idea of permeability and transparency between indoor and outdoor spaces,and that intimate connection with light and nature.”


Vincent Van Duysen

The collection
The Outdoor Collection serves as the ultimate testing ground, where technical prowess and craftsmanship elevate the performance and natural textures of carefully selected materials, ensuring both technical and aesthetic excellence. The Landmark Collection is characterized by solid teak, harmoniously designed to allow outdoor spaces to be experienced with comfort and elegance. The Timeout Collection features metal as the predominant material. A reference to modernist architecture, softened by delicate lines. Two significant projects by Gio Ponti enrich the Molteni&C Heritage Collection for outdoors, reviving classic icons into contemporary design ideas.

The Palinfrasca Sofa interpreting the essence of teak not only in an unprecedented and contemporary way, but also in the most exhaustive representation of Molteni&C's savoir-faire and research into materials

Palinfrasca | Armchair

The themes that identify the Landmark Collection - the curved, enveloping lines of the solid teak frame and the macro-scale warp and weft pattern - remain in the armchair and, thanks to the more compact proportions, become even clearer and more expressive.

Palinfrasca | Pouff

The harmonious lines of the Landmark Collection can also be found in the pouffe, which boasts a solid teak frame enriched with a polyurethane cushion for maximum support and comfort.

Phoenix | Sofa

A collection with a minimal and contemporary aesthetic that interprets elements of the Mediterranean tradition: fer forgé and hand woven polypropylene rope. The sofa is available in two versions, also with two cushions, with widths of 150 and 180 cm. The use of aluminium, which weighs significantly less than iron, allows for easy movement of generously sized furniture.

Phoenix | Armchair

The Timeout Collection offers a wide range of seating: in addition to the two-cushion sofa in two sizes, there is also a generously proportioned armchair and a table chair with a slender, aerial profile, both available with or without armrests, and the result of a careful study of ergonomics.

Phoenix | Small tables

Completing the Timeout Collection is a large low table in two widths, for versatile, intimate or convivial outdoor living spaces. It picks up on the aesthetic motifs of the collection such as the burnished aluminium band, profiles and rounded corners.

Golden Gate | Tables

Green Point Bench

A multipurpose element with an accentuated horizontal nature, the bench lends itself well to the freedom of use and mobility inherent in Outdoor furniture.

Guell | sunbed

The sun sunbed, the archetype par excellence of outdoor furniture, interprets all the elements that characterise the aesthetics of the Timeout Collection, re-proposing the theme of the burnished painted aluminium band, running along the entire profile, and the traditional motif of the polypropylene rope weave.

Regent | Small tables

To emphasise the formal and material correspondences between the two Collections, Vincent Van Duysen designed the Regent coffee tables with three top shapes: round, oval and square.

Hyde | pouf

The interaction between the two collections is enhanced in a comfortable pouf, in two sizes, with a woven texture, to complete the accessories proposal of the Timeout Collection.

Boulogne | Baskets

D.154.2 | Armchair

One of Gio Ponti's most iconic and representative pieces, designed in 1954 for the Planchart collectors' villa in Caracas (1953-57), is now available in an outdoor version. The careful study of materials and technical performance guarantee not only respect for the valuable original design, but also the durability that characterises all Molteni&C products.

D.150.5 | Armchair

In collaboration with the Gio Ponti Archives and the heirs of the renowned Milanese architect, Molteni&C is reconstructing one of the rare pieces of furniture Gio Ponti designed for outdoor use: the D.150.5 chaise longue projectes for the cruise ship Andrea Doria in 1952.

Helios | Kitchen

To fully experience Outdoor spaces, the Outdoor proposal is completed by an outdoor kitchen, design by Vincent Van Duysen.“Conviviality and sophistication are the key words I wanted to attribute to this outdoor kitchen. Furniture with a simple yet structured feel, where functionality and sophistication coexist to create a modern design,’ says Creative Director Vincent Van Duysen.

Arc | Tables

Foster + Partners' Arc sculpture table joins the Outdoor proposal with an all-cement finish. The shape of the base is inspired by the techno-structures often used in modern buildings, while the material used is a "light" cement that incorporates colour and a special fibrous material, moulded in a single block and coloured en masse.

Pannacotta | Small Tables

In its Outdoor guise, Panna Cotta features a stainless-steel frame with a perforated top, supporting a base in Lava Stone. The coffee table is available in anthracite, olive green and desert yellow is available in two rounded tops.

Hedera | Carpet

Hedera, designed by Vincent Van Duysen, is a rectangular rug available in three sizes, alternating thin beige and olive green stripes, creating a playful and harmonious movement.

Palma | Carpet

Palma, designed by Nicola Gallizia, relies on the sensation of walking on sand to develop a unique creative project. A 100% recycled and recyclable PET carpet, capable of conveying the natural lustre of silk.

Musco | Carpet

Musco, by Marta Ferri, proposes geometric patterns and run-up bands that enhance a palette inspired by the shades of the undergrowth. Available both monochrome in beige and olive green, and multicoloured in shades of olive green, earth brown and sand, it is complemented by tone-on-tone or contrasting fringes.

The finishes
Molteni&C's Outdoor offering is the result of thorough research into a few selected materials. Burnished varnished aluminium, natural teak, stainless steel, EVA polyurethane bands (a UVresistant material), polypropylene ropes and Etna lava stone. These are the only materials that make up the structural part of the Outdoor proposal. Just six materials, each with a precise and distinctive aesthetic and with its own ability to evoke visual and tactile sensations, recalling Mediterranean cultures and manufacturing traditions, here revisited in a new and contemporary image.
The textiles
Musco, the series of upholstery fabrics developed in collaboration with Limonta Spa, embellishes and complements the Landmark and Timeout Collections. Seven monochrome and decorative fabrics, selected by Marta Ferri, with a material and soft hand: monochrome or striped jacquard and bouclé yarns, to be combined ton sur ton or contrast, without prevailing over the material identity and the expressive figure of each Outdoor collection. The fabrics are inspired by shades of nature, where warmer tones, such as rust and dark brown, alternate with cooler ones such as blue or undergrowth green.
Considering the strong palette of materials of the Outdoor proposal, colors have been carefully coordinated. Organic tones such as rust, desert yellow, earth brown, olive green, and anthracite mean that pieces from disparate collections can live easily together. Molteni&C’s steadfast commitment to sustainability resides at the core of the new collection. It is a responsibility that is pursued in every step of production, from conception to the product’s end of life. The furniture in the collection is predominantly mono-material and sourced from certified supply chains, the parts are replaceable, and, as in the case of the upholstery, recyclable. The vitreous inserts of the Etna lava stone, used for the oven-baked enameling of the surfaces, come from the crushing of recycled glass from TV and PC monitors.
the designers
Molteni&C's two Outdoor collections are independent but dialogue with each other, thanks to mutual and sophisticated references in the details and in the common colour palette, which reflects typically Mediterranean colours, from the warm earthy tones to the hues of olive groves, to the shades of coastal vegetation: olive green, anthracite, ivory, burnished and desert yellow. The same shades are featured in the carpets: creations by Marta Ferri, Nicola Gallizia and Vincent Van Duysen add an extra touch of elegance to the Outdoor experience. The products are interpreted by the most important contemporary designers, from Foster + Partners to Ron Gilad, from Gio Ponti to artistic director Vincent Van Duysen.
