Cleo for Molteni&C


Cleo, a new design by the architect and creative director Vincent Van Duysen for Molteni&C, is a modular system consisting of various rectilinear, angular and self-standing elements that allow for a large number of compositions suitable for all kinds of living.

The heart of the project is the frame, which is used for each individual component. A harmonious curvilinear shell, recalling a cozy place, which embraces seat and back without a break. The shell, upholstered in textiles or in leather, like the seat cushions, offers great comfort. The possible combinations between the various upholstery materials for covering the frame and the seat cushions, can either make a contrast or emphasize the harmony of the two components.

The rectangular back cushions can be placed at will to satisfy any requirements, guaranteeing comfort and allowing for different relaxation positions: from sitting comfortably to read a good book or spending time with loved ones, to lying down for a brief rest. Cleo is supported by feet made of a thin layer of varnished steel, designed to make the sofa look like an object floating in the living area, thus become heart and protagonist, thanks to its easy collocation even in the center of the room. In addition, Cleo has rectilinear single frame solutions, suitable for creating a sofa with complete and enveloping shapes.

The collection is complemented with the homonymous range of coffee and side tables, domestic sculptures that derives from the professional experience of architect and creative director Vincent Van Duysen. A natural complement to the modular system of Cleo seating designed by Vincent van Duysen, it is a set of small tables marked by a geometry that recalls an ellipse. Its particular feature lies in the top, available with a new metallic finish (Galaxy), or upholstered in ecoskin in the 8 colors of the Molteni&C range.

The top is thicker in the middle in order to accommodate the solid Eucalyptus, Black Oak and Sunrise Oak supporting legs, curved according to the profile of the top. The profile of the top becomes slims down towards the free sides, tapering almost to the width of a blade. Available in two heights and two different dimensions.
