Whether you’re looking for inspiration, or simply want to swoon, the latest Molteni kitchens create striking spaces that blend aspects of contemporary design with looks that will never go out of style. Here we explore their latest 2020 collection.

Molteni Kitchens: What Makes a Modern Kitchen?

Often the busiest room in a house, the kitchen is a focal point where the family enjoys meals and dinner party hosts chat with guests. Think of it as a stage on which an intimate atmosphere is created that makes everyone feel at home. Therefore, you’ll want to fit it with the kind of luxury worthy of the ambience you have in mind.

Luckily, the latest creations from Dada kitchens are imbued with exactly that luxurious ambience. Signed off by the company’s creative director Vincent Van Duysen and guest designer Francesco Meda, its 2020 collection embraces innovative design solutions for contemporary living, featuring domestic spaces that are versatile, multifunctional, and perfect for a multitude of different spaces.

First up is the Ratio kitchen by Vincent Van Duysen, a modular design with style and elegance in equal measure. Characterised by wooden paneling and marble surfaces, Duysen has devised a series of industrial compositions made up of various accessories which attach to a seek metal frame.

Onto a basic architecture defined by metal grids, customers can attach additional wall units, columns and hoods as well as other accessories including snack counters, minimal stove tops, sinks, and empty volumes for storage and display of utensils.

Ratio is equipped with slatted doors and internal lighting, which integrate the handles with profiles of the same thickness, designing a decorative frame that gives rhythm to its structure. In addition to traditional linear compositions, corner solutions, central islands and accessory units make it possible to achieve the desired vision.

Meanwhile, the material palette satisfies the most discerning of users with sophisticated woods like Mooreiche oak and black palm, which balances the natural stone of georgette marble and rapolano travertine. All of this is interspersed with sophisticated bronze aluminum accents.

Intersection: Seamless geometry by Vincent Van Duysen

Next up is Intersection Dada kitchen, an expressive kitchen collection that interprets architecture and redefines its proportions. With sculptural finesse, Van Duysen has designed a series of elements that play with light and shadow, mixing solid marble worktops and black wood.

In place of smart modular solutions, as seen in Van Duysen’s Ratio collection, Intersection carries with it a dominant structure that makes it suitable for a larger space. As given away by its name, the kitchen’s various surfaces intersect and, depending on your spatial requirements, can be arranged to fit any existing kitchen layout. Combining generous units with customisable accessories, statement profiles are at once imperceptible and yet distinctly dominated by geometric proportions like the oak countertop, which merges seamlessly with the island.

Sistema XY: A unique flexibility by Francesco Meda

Milanese designer Francesco Meda has also created a modular system for Dada kitchen collection. This collection is similar in the way it adheres to a minimal level of ornamentation but yet a maximalist concept drives its design. When designing Sistema XY, Meda wanted to create an architecture that gave the vast amount of kitchen accessories a place to call home.

Furthermore, he wanted each one to be within easy reach. The result is a system of tracks on an X and Y axis that offers an impressive level of flexibility. Imagine it as a Cartesian plane, the configuration developed through various extruded aluminum profiles

The basic “axis” of the design is a central accessorizable channel (compatible with other Dada kitchen models), featuring ad hoc spaces for items like knife holders, chopping boards, spices and condiments, eclectic plug units, extraction hoods and plate racks.
On the same track, uprights can be installed, also vertically, to support a system of aluminium shelves that can be finished in different materials such as wood or stainless steel.

Sistema 7: The perfect finish for Molteni Kitchens

In the interest of both space and retaining the beautifully streamlined design of its latest models, Dada kitchens has also unveiled the Sistema 7 wall unit, which boasts the same innovative opening mechanism used in the Molteni Gliss Master system.

At its core is a horizontal folding mechanism that enables the doors to be opened and folded back, aligned parallel to the adjacent compartment without occupying space in front of it.

A slatted oak design with light proportions lends the Sistema 7 to all three kitchen models, echoing the minimalism of Ratio, adding extra depth to the geometry of Intersection, and further emphasising the utilitarian personality of the XY system by highlighting the kitchen’s contents.

Armani / Dada presents Midnight

If straight up opulence is more your thing then Dada’s latest collaboration with Armani has a new versatile bar cabinet with the utmost splendour. Designed as a “treasure chest”, Midnight is a cocktail and wine bar with the option to include a mini-kitchen, encompassing aesthetic, modernism and functionality, all hallmarks of the Armani/Dada collection.

A clean, Japanese-inspired design features doors in a gilded bronze finish aluminum with vertical rod inserts in aniègre frisé-textured, and a satin aluminium finish in a champagne hue. Perfect for compact spaces that you want to make a big impact, Midnight uses a patented mechanism that allows its doors to sit alongside the unit without occupying additional space.
