Carlo Mollino Hyperformal Allusions
September 4 – November 7 2021
An exhibition based on an analysis of furnishings for the Casa Albonico, a reinterpretation of the work of Mollino, a key figure in the world of twentieth-century design and architecture, highlights a series of aspects that have not yet been sufficiently examined. These range from his obsession with form and his links with the second wave of Futurism, through to his interest in craftsmanship, interior design, engineering, physics and aerodynamics. Two fundamental aspects of Carlo Mollino’s work, which the furnishings for the Casa Albonico allow us to explore, are the artisanal manufacture of his furniture and his cooperation with other artists.
