The products in this category include three chairs by Gio Ponti that have been restyled by Molteni&C. D.235.1 and D.235.2 were designed in 1935 for the Palazzo Montecatini on Largo Donegani in Milan. The first is made entirely of glossy aluminium, while its twin features leather upholstery on the seat and back. D.270.1 was designed in 1970. Thanks to its minimised bulk and weight, its accessible price and a design that can be adapted to a variety of activities, from reading to conversation, it was to become the epitome of versatility applied to design. In the Molteni&C range, Aldo Rossi, the first Italian winner of the Pritzker Prize, presents Teatro, a seat with a classic flavour originally designed in conjunction with Luca Meda for the Teatro Carlo Felice in Genoa. The structure is made from glossy lacquered wood, while for the upholstery you can choose between leather and fabric. Rodolfo Dordoni presents Chelsea, a well-structured series with simple frames and three different types of back that create a refined contemporary look ideal for dining rooms. It is composed of solid wood, like the structure of Who, a seat whose comfort is guaranteed by the oak, elm or walnut armrests. Hannes Wettstein designed Alfa, an ode to simplicity, made up of the combination of just two pieces: the backrest (that continues with the rear legs) and the seat (that extends to form the front legs), a minimalistic, elegant vocation that won it the title of "Best Seating" at the ICFF Editors Award in 2001. Arik Levy designed Outline: this designer chair combines ergonomics with the versatility of its many versions, as it is possible to configure it in fabric or fabric-leather with chrome or wooden legs. Patricia Urquiola's creations are characteristically unconventional: Glove (winner of the Chicago Athenaeum Good Design Award 2007) and Glove-Up. In both versions, available in both leather and fabric, technology is combined with the purest aesthetics to create a fluid, lively and curvilinear object. This definition also applies to MHC.3 Miss, a contemporary reworking of the chair of the same name designed by Afra and Tobia Scarpa in 1986, featuring soft, continuous lines that create function through an enveloping, magical language.
