Carlo Mollino 1905-1973
Carlo Mollino, a versatile personality from Turin born on May 6, 1905, was a true pioneer in multiple aspects: He was an Italian designer, architect, photographer and writer. As a man of many talents, Mollino was also an avid race car driver, pilot, ski enthusiast and inventor.
The visionary genius’ design ethos was centred around animal-inspired forms and anatomical silhouettes whose curves created arabesques and sinuous lines reminiscent of ski tracks and the trails left by acrobatic planes in the sky. Adopting an experimental and complex design style, Mollino crafted surrealistic pieces for private commissions which were largely one-offs production. His thrill-seeking approach to life, architecture, and design made him one of mid-century Italy’s most remarkable cultural figures.
