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 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.
