The MHC.1 chest of drawers is a new edition of the prototype of the first modern piece of furniture made by Molteni & C, a chest of drawers designed by Werner Blaser.
Although MCH.1 was never produced industrially, in 1955 it won first prize at the Cantù “Prima mostra selettiva - Concorso internazionale del mobile”, a competition designed to re-qualify the image of Italian furniture making. The jury was made up of Gio Ponti, Alvar Alto, Romano Barocchi, Carlo de Carli and Finn Juhl.
After issuing a limited edition run of 100 numbered pieces, two new non-numbered versions are now available in either honey-stained pattern wood, or ash wood stained black.
The chest has three useful drawers, and the unusual joinery features a simple three-fork joint.
