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.
