After the diploma at the Istituto Statale d’Arte (Public Institute of Arts) in Cantù, Molteni continued his technical and artistic training in the field of industrial design in Milan.
From the very beginning, his creativity has been characterised by continuous research and a strong interest in new materials, and he quickly gained recognition for the chairs, tables and accessories that he designed for both residential and public use.
Working in collaboration with companies in the upholstered furniture field, he has focused his attention on ergonomic dynamics and convertible furniture systems. These systems have been applied to products intended for large-scale distribution and have appeared in leading furniture fairs in Italy and Europe.
Molteni designs for several furniture showrooms, as well as his continued contact with clients, reveal a fundamental respect for functionality and the personal needs of end users. Nowadays he collaborates with companies leaders in the home sector, helping in the development of project strategy.
