carlo mollino (1905 – 1973) was an italian designer and architect. the son of an engineer, mollino is widely regarded as one of the most important and influential designers of the 20th century.
his individual aesthetic was defined by contrasting modes of expression, blending surrealism and organic form. a racecar driver, photographer, skier, engineer, architect and aviator, mollino’s eclectic character and broad range of interests inspired his unique career. his architectural projects included the camera di commercio and the teatro regio in turin. mollino’s diverse interests and non-conformist attitude set him apart from his peers. more articles on mollino from designboom’s archive.
