Carlo Mollino (1905-1973) was one of the foremost figures in a generation of Italian designers. This biography demonstrates Mollino's unique anti-conformist attitude, a design statement that was at odds with the zeitgeist in his home town, Turin, in the 1950s. This brave move, however, paid off and was the reason for the great international interest in his extraordinary creative skills in the fields of architecture, design and photography.

Also famous for his love for mountains, cars and aviation, Mollino captured the attention (and the amazement) of the critics for the individuality of his works. In architecture, furniture and interior design, his output combined examples of Surrealist sensibility and a pioneering and highly personal organic approach. His famous three-legged chairs, tables with zoomorphic shapes, armchairs 'on tiptoe' and daring skeletal structures have in recent years achieved the very peak of world collecting, thereby contributing to his renown as an unparalleled creator.
