An installation at Molteni&C Dada for Designer’s Days

French designer Constance Guisset recently designed an installation at the Molteni&C Dada flagship store in Paris for the design festival Designer’s Days.

Sharing the festival’s theme of “conversations,” the installation was inspired by the showroom for the Italian design houses Molteni&C and Dada. Guisset created a dialogue not only between the installation and the showroom, but also between architecture and design, historic and contemporary production, and the past and the present.

Within the installation, Guisset placed the first collection of furniture designed by Afra and Tobia Scarpa, who design the store in 1979. Also on display were pieces by Jean Nouvel, Patricia Urquiola and Foster + Partners.

The festival ran from 16 to 20 June and consisted of presentations, social events, exhibitions, forums and workshops.

Molteni&C furniture is available through Hub Furniture in Australia.
