Van Duysen, who was named as the brand’s creative director last year, was asked by the Italian design brand to create a “secluded home from home”, and did so through his choice of materials and lighting.

These included the Welcome Collection of small tables designed by Rodolfo Dordoni, Teorema, a new storage unit designed by Ron Gilad, Sloane, a new modular sofa by MDT and a new series of wardrobes and walk-in closets designed by Van Duysen himself.

Among the new launches were two new reissues of Gio Ponti designs – one of which caused a legal battle between Molteni and fellow Italian brand Cassina over who had the rights to the 1950s chair.
