Luca Lanzetta threw a little party the other night to give a sneak peek at his new Molteni & C line, a couple months ahead of the opening of his new, eponymous showroom in the Mart. I fell hard for The Buddy side table by Hannes Wettstein—take off the chrome top, and it becomes a swell wine chiller. It’s especially divine in coach hide leather with topstitching, no? And I was thinking, why stop at dual use? Why not make that top two-sided, with a thin cushion on one, so it can serve as extra seating? The idea’s free, Molteni. You’re welcome.
