Carlo Mollino, The Iconoclast

Carlo Mollino, The Iconoclast

Forza Italia ! This year parliamo italiano, dai ! The Italian Cultural Institute of Paris has worked with the Museo Casa Mollino in Turin to develop an exhibition on the work of Turin-born architect and designer Carlo Mollino (1905-1973). This extraordinary iconoclast of the inter-war period unveils his life through automobile models, sketches of furniture, projects and portrait polaroid photos of his conquests – an exquisite work for the time. His flagship piece is one of the stunning productions of his “Casa del Sole” project, showcasing a wooden set of bunk beds. Lucky visitors will be able to admire the masterpiece! Five of these pieces of furniture have recently been sold for around three million dollars at Christie’s in New York. We highly recommend this intimate, beautifully-researched exhibition. Until April 30, 2015.
