Molteni & C is a family-owned, luxury Italian furniture brand with a restrained style of design; so high quality is their work that the veneers they manufacture for their furniture are used by other high-end furniture companies. Molteni & C is celebrating the 15th anniversary of Graduate, the revolutionary suspended bookcase designed by Jean Nouvel in 2003. Graduate won the prestigious Red Dot Award in 2005 and the Design Award of the Federal Republic of Germany in 2006. An icon, it features ethereal lightness and sophisticated technology that encapsulates the architectural thinking of Jean Nouvel.
The virtuoso modular bookcase consists of a single solid shelf anchored to the wall or ceiling and its slender, regularly notched metal rods – ‘magically’ supported by invisible hooks – in turn support a series of adjustable shelves that seem to float freely.
