"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 table features a frame in solid natural or black varnished oak, or in Canaletto walnut-dyed oak; wax-finished varnish. 5/8" thick extra clear plate glass top, with or without bevelled edges, or in Emperador marble 13/16" thick top, with stain-resistant protective varnish, in clear matt polyester.

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.
Established in 1954, Zanotta is one of the recognized leaders in Italian industrial design. Guided by the insight and wonderful entrepreneurship abilities of the founder, Aureilio Zanotta, beginning in the 1960s it won and has held the international spotlight. This was thanks to its products: emblematic for both their formal and technological innovations.
