Inspired by the mantra that “everything is permissible as long as it is fantastic”, Italian architect, designer and photographer Carlo Mollino was one of the twentieth century’s most iconic designers. Demonstrating undeniable foresight into the future of design, Mollino’s ground-breaking aesthetic ensures his designs remain popular today.
A celebrated architect as well as a furniture designer, Carlo Mollino began his career designing an award-winning seafront house at Forte dei Marmi. Going on to design iconic buildings across Turin, such as the RAI Auditorium, the Camera di Commercio building and the Teatro Regio Torino, Mollino’s architectural creations demonstrate his ability to create eccentric and complex silhouettes perfectly. Boasting a starkly contemporary style, characteristics of Mollino’s architectural feats are reflected in his furniture designs.
Often designing pieces specially for the buildings that he created, Carlo Mollino designed classics such as the Gilda Armchair, the Reale Table and the Cavour Writing Desk. Still recognised for his huge contribution to design and architecture today, Mollino’s iconic designs is held in the permanent collections at the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, London’s Victoria and Albert Museum, and the Brooklyn Museum in New York.
The Reale table was originally conceptualised in 1946 and remains an emblem of the designer’s aptitude for achieving function using an eccentric, complex silhouette.
Reissued by Zanotta, Reale is a juxtaposition of honest materials, with a five inch, bevelled glass top resting on slender lines of natural oak, and held by a series of intricate joints in strong, perfectly-balanced suspension.
This timeless twentieth-century design is starkly contemporary and demonstrates Mollino’s undeniable foresight into the future of design.
