The Glass House: Displaying Furniture In Natural Settings

The Glass House Project literally sheds light (natural and abundant) on this stunning furniture collection by Molteni & C. Even for those designers and enthusiasts who do not subscribe to a modern philosophy, the impact generated by the site and layout is awe-inspiring. The individual pieces lend themselves to minimalist styling and this has been employed by an incredibly restrained and experienced hand. Established in 1934, Molteni channels a design movement rooted in the 1950s in this avant-garde collection, which is complimented by the Eichler-esque choice in display home.

Viewing the following video serves to impart a deeper understanding of Molteni’s approach to design and an insight into the way the company thinks.
