Now in its 15th year, the renowned London Design Festival will be returning to the capital this year from the 16th to the 24th September. During the week’s festivities, be sure not to miss the awe-inspiring exhibition of Molteni&C|Dada, in partnership with Kvadrat. The theme this year, chosen by the Brompton District is “Other Stories – alternative perspectives on design”, and will see exhibitors exploring design from a myriad of different angles in light of topical current issues – nothing in this year’s line-up will say ‘in the box’—we’re looking forward to innovative, incredible designs, that defy the usual parameters of thinking.
In honour of the legendary Italian architect and designer Gio Ponti, Molteni&C|Dada and Kvadrat are going to present “Amare Gio Ponti”, a documentary movie by Molteni&C, accompanied by a modern reinterpretation of a selection of Gio Ponti’s greatest work, and presented by Vincent Van Duysen and upholstered in fabrics from the Kvadrat/Raf Simons collection. The selected fabrics have been chosen in collaboration with Gio Ponti Archives using different colours and patterns to pay tribute to the architects’ design ethos.
Molteni&C|Dada and Kvadrat can be found at 245-249 Brompton Road, during the week. The canvas of the showroom will be adorned with an installation designed by Vincent Van Duysen and the Gio Ponti Collection (re-edited by Molteni&C in collaboration with Gio Ponti).
