Carlo Mollino (Turin, 1905-1973) was a designer, among many other things. He also was an architect and set designer, an airplane and racecar pilot, a photographer and writer, an expert skier (and author of a book, “Introduzione al discesismo”, in which he explained his personal technique), and a college professor. He had a protean talent that could not be contained.
In the 1940s he began working in the fields of design and interior decor, confirming an extraordinary creative freedom. His furniture – including the selection of tables we present in this gallery – is made up of prototypes, one-of-a-kind pieces that mix elements taken from different styles, from Baroque to Modernism, from Rococo to Surrealism, from Futurism to Art Nouveau.
