Since 1979, Dada has been part of Gruppo Molteni, a leader in the Italian furniture industry. With its companies Molteni&C, Dada, Unifor and Citterio, the Group offers a global range of services and products in over eighty countries in the world. Dada is positioned at the high end of the market with mass-produced items created by designers with extensive international experience: Banco by Luca Meda; Vela, Tivalì and Trim by Dante Bonuccelli; Hi-Line6 by Ferruccio Laviani; INDada by Nicola Gallizia; VVD by Vincent Van Duysen. Different models in terms of type, finishing and materials, but all with one essential feature in common: the chance to combine specific elements from each series in order to come up with original solutions.
Design and experimentation have always been the hallmarks of Dada kitchens. Innovative, both functionally, aesthetically and technologically, they are the result of intense research and testing, carried out in cooperation with architects and designers. Thanks to state-of-the-art technological know-how, both in traditional woodworking and in the more innovative field of metals and new materials, Dada is able to satisfy specific design requirements. Exclusive, functional domestic spaces, where technology is key without being intrusive, for those who love their kitchen as the beating heart of their home. Alongside its standard ranges, Dada also produces customized designs for special projects, even on a large scale. Specific customized models can be integrated into broader architectural contexts and eventually get introduced into the Dada collection. Examples are the recent 53 West Moma Tower New York (Jean Nouvel), 551 West 21 Street New York (Foster+Partners), 56 Leonard Street New York (Herzog & De Meuron), Bal Harbour Oceana (Arquitectonica), Nova Victoria London (Flanagan Lawrence), Saxony Miami Beach Residences (Foster+Partners), Southbank Tower London (KPF Architects) and the Washington CCDC (Foster+Partners).
In 2008 Gruppo Armani and Gruppo Molteni formed a partnership for the production and distribution of the Armani/Dada collection. Armani/Dada Contract projects include: the development of customized kitchen systems for the exclusive Armani Residences in the Burj Khalifa inDubai, the private residences of San Pietro all’Orto in Milan, the Imperial Cullinan in Hong Kong, the White City private residences in Tel Aviv and the World One in Mumbai.
