Designed in 1953, the D.153.1 armchair is part of the furniture of Gio Ponti’s private house in Via Dezza in Milan. This re-edition is produced by Molteni&C based on the original drawings from the Ponti archives. With brass structure, the fabric reinterprets the age-old technique of velvet-weaving, bringing it up to date with contemporary patterns, such as close sequences of staggered disks with various gradations of colour. D.153.1 is also available in Punteggiato Velvet and two-tonned leather besides the exquisite range of Molteni&C upholstery collection.
A confluence of exemplary design, cutting-edge craft and great tradition, founded in 1934 in Italy. Over the years, Molteni has designed and built prototypes that have become mainstream, introduced new ways of crafting furniture systems that are architectural in every sense, and enlivened the homes of people who appreciate technique, detail and beauty.
