Carlo Mollino : architecture as autobiography by Giovanni Brino( Book )

13 editions published between 1987 and 2005 in English and German and held by 481 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Carlo Mollino (1905-1973) was one of the most original and enigmatic exponents of architecture and design in Italy in the 20th century. Scorned by critics, and nonconformist in the extreme, his architecture, furniture and interiors use a vocabulary derived from Futurism Surrealism and a host of architects from Gaudi to Mendelsohn, Aalto to Le Corbusier. The result, however, was always highly individual, and his most important projects - the ski station at Lago Nero in the Alps, the Teatro Regio in Turin or the Ippica, again in Turin - all demonstrate an exceptional imagination. As this book shows, much of this inspiration came from his extraordinary range of interests, which included aeronautics, competitive skiing, set design, stunt flying and eroticism." "With the demolition or irreversible alteration of almost all of his built work, today Mollino is best known for his astonishing furniture. Drawing on rarely seen photographs and documents, and illustrating over eighty interiors alongside items of furniture, this important monograph reconstructs his character with all its flaws and flashes of genius, allowing us to get to the essence of his creative energy. At a time when his legacy is arguably more keenly felt than ever before, in matters of taste as well as of architecture, this book offers the most detailed picture of his achievements yet."--Jacket

7 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Maniera Moderna" is dedicated to the multi-faceted work of the Italian architect, designer and photographer Carlo Mollino. His surrealist roots are evident in the black and white photography and interiors of the 1930s, right through to his later work in the elegant Teatro Regio and his highly-staged erotic Polaroids. However, he was also inspired to create the most individual of designs by the Futurism of Gaudí, Niemeyer and Le Corbusier. His extravagant furniture, which he produced in limited numbers or as unique pieces, is still extremely sought after. It is an expression of the designer's extraordinary fantasy: chairs can look like deer, the ribs of a table like the human spinal column, backrests like skis. This monograph is divided into six chapters: choreography, montage, publications, display, appropriations and techniques, which impressively highlight the correspondences within Mollino's wide-ranging and heterogeneous oeuvre

3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Original and inventive, the work of Carlo Mollino (1905-73) is a unique chapter in the history of twentieth-century Italian design and architecture. For the first time, this book presents his complete works in furniture and interior design. Most of Mollino's furniture was site specific with one-off pieces created for specially commissioned interiors. Rarely available, these works are highly sought after by collectors and design enthusiasts alike." "From the start, both Mollino's interests and personality set him apart from his contemporaries. Influenced by the Second Futurism and Surrealist avant-gardes, Mollino was a modern-day Renaissance man active in an impressive number of fields, including aeronautics, automobile design, art, photography, set design, town planning, furniture, interior decoration and architecture. Through his extensive artistic research, he was able to combine various contrasting forms of expression, which gave his work a remarkable and unusual dynamic. His furniture was based on organic shapes, such as tree branches, animal horns and the human body - with the female profile figuring prominently in his designs. Beyond this highly personal aesthetic, his work involved research into materials and technology, and the development of complex construction techniques, as with the celebrated bent plywood 'Arabesque' table of 1950." "Illustrated with original drawings, sketches and archival photographs, The Furniture of Carlo Mollino represents the most comprehensive record of Mollino's design production. Realized in collaboration with the Museo Casa Mollino and written by the Museum's curators, Napoleone and Fulvio Ferrari, this monograph offers an insight into Mollino's groundbreaking oeuvre."--BOOK JACKET
