MHC.1 is a new edition of the prototype of the first modern piece of furniture made by Molteni&C, the chest of drawers designed by Werner Blaser. Thought it was never produced industrially, in 1955 it won first prize at the Cantù “Prima mostra selettiva - Concorso internazionale del mobile”, a competition designed to re-qualify the image of Italian furniture making. The jury was made up of Gio Ponti, Alvar Alto, Romano Barocchi, Carlo de Carli and Finn Juhl. The unusual joinery features a simple three-fork joint.
