9780500285831: Carlo Mollino: Architecture as Autobiography, Revised and Expanded Edition

An overview of the accomplishments of one of the most original and enigmatic exponents of architecture in Italy this century.

Carlo Mollino (1905-1973) expressed himself through his architectural designs, furniture, and interiors, in a language assimilated from futurism and surrealism. The influence of architects ranging from Gaudí to Mendelsohn, from Aalto to Le Corbusier, can be seen in his highly individual designs. Projects such as the ski station at Lago Nero, the Teatro Regio in Turin, and the Lutrario ballroom demonstrated his exceptional powers of imagination.

With the demolition of his massive masterpiece, the Ippica in Turin, and the destruction of his most prestigious interiors, all that remains today of Mollino's work is his furniture. Drawing on rare photographs and documents, this important monograph reconstructs Mollino's work through more than eighty interiors and pieces of furniture spanning his career, pieces built with such bravura that they often resemble sculpture more than works of industrial design. The impact of Mollino on the recent history of architecture and taste in general is now being increasingly recognized, and this study gives us a detailed picture of his achievements. 360 illustrations, 31 in color.

Book Description Thames Hudson Ltd, United Kingdom, 2006. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Revised, Expanded. 298 x 242 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Carlo Mollino (1905 - 1973) has been called many things: designer, architect, sex and drug-obsessed genius, connoisseur of extreme decoration - but he has never been called untalented. This monograph covers all facets of Mollino s career as a leading exponent of Italian postwar design: furniture, clothing, interiors and racing cars, as well as a sampling of the erotic images for which he is increasingly renowned. He also worked as a designer of fashion, theatre and film sets, and all of these endeavours are presented in this wonderfully comprehensive volume. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9780500285831
