Molteni & C

Molteni & C is a company with advanced technology and a longstanding tradition. In the 1970s, it started to define its identity by following two routes. First, it implemented ongoing research in the sector of modular furniture, developing with Luca Meda's designs a number of solutions suited to all parts of the home, from wardrobe to living room and study/home office. Modular systems such as 505, 7volte7 and Pass, to name but a few, are designs in constant evolution, both in technical and construction terms, as well as in function and comfort. They have been highly successful and Molteni is considered a leader in this sector.


Even in these modern high-tech times, when data and information can be conveniently stored in tiny USB devices, we still have a physical space in our homes in which to keep and file away documents and objects we consider important. Now Ron Gilad, the eclectic Israeli designer, has reinvented the classic “secretaire”. No more old-fashioned desks with drawers, compartments for files, cabinets protected by intricate locks: their place is now taken by a triangular unit to suspend from a wall at any height, its bottom section opening up to reveal its secrets. Inside are tiny shelves and drawers in which to file away documents, letters, small books and other objects that need to be safely stored for retrieval at will. Thanks to a clever system of stay-rods, the lower part becomes a worktop to use when writing or to support a laptop or tablet. Which is why Segreto also has all the most modern multimedia connections. The unit comes in eucalyptus or American walnut finishes that make it easily matched with any interior décor.
