reale table

Design Homage to Carlo Mollino, 1946
Glass top, oak or cherry frame
Made in Italy by Zanotta

"everything is allowed, imagination is always saved."
-Carlo Mollino

The complex design of the Reale table emphasizes Carlo Mollino's abilities to produce ageless and unique objects that beautifully integrate into contemporary decor as seamlessly as they did over half a century ago. The complex wood structure is available in varnished cherry-wood with a natural or wenge stain or in walnut-dyed oak or painted with an open pore black or white finish. The plate glass top is .5" thick with a beveled edge. The Reale table is offered in 4 sizes.

Born in Turin, Piedmont, Carlo Mollino grew up and became interested in a variety of topics that were as gaudy as his art, such as design, architecture, the occult, and race cars. His outrageous credo was certainly reflected throughout his body of work. Mollino's architecture and furniture are famous for their ability to enable occupants to manipulate volumes at a whim. Carlo Mollino died in 1973, he was still working.

Carlo Mollino

Carlo Mollino of Turin, Italy was more inspired by his eccentric interests than he ever was by convention. Though beginning his career as an architect, Mollino moved into other disciplines, where he infused his loves of skiing, race car driving, the female form, and the occult. Of his many works, the highest demand is made for his furniture, due to its rarity. His pieces were mostly all commissioned, and are scarce. Mollino’s interests culminate in his furniture design, which display mechanical function, the wooden angles of Alpine homes, and womanly curves. As a ski-enthusiast, he wrote a book sharing his personal skiing methods. As a photographer, he worked largely with Polaroids and used his apartment as the stylized set for his nude female subjects. One room in his apartment had an even more specific purpose, designed to be Mollino’s own tomb in which he hoped to die and remain. However; this idea, directly inspired by the Egyptian pharaohs, was unrealized. He died of an unexpected heart-attack in 1973.
