The purity of the line of this “Mollino” chairs, although comparable with the historical memories of the Baroque, is a formal renewal and an unprecedented line neo-baroque but without superfluous ornamentation. The exuberantly versatile and flamboyantly prolific Italian artist Carlo Mollino – designer, architect, rally driver, stunt flier, photographer, fashion designer, stage designer, and man of letters – was born in Turin in 1905. Carlo Mollino’s furniture was often one-off or produced in very limited editions by Apelli & Varesio of Turin. A table designed by Carlo Mollino in 1949 was sold at auction by Christie’s in 2005 for a staggering $3.8 million.
