Carlo Mollino. Allusioni iperformali


For the very first time the furnishings that Mollino designed  for Casa Albonico in Turin between 1944 and 1946 are exhibited, objects for the domestic space which tell a timeless design, still contemporary even eighty years later.The exhibition, curated by Marco Sammicheli, is organized thanks to the collaboration between Triennale Milano and The Ministry of Culture; the set-up is by Studio Bunker.
Starting from the analysis of the furnishings of Casa Albonico, a re-reading of Mollino's work is offered, highlighting his link with the second Futurism and his interest in physics and aerodynamics. The exhibition explores two fundamental aspects of Carlo Mollino's activity: the artisanal production of furniture and the collaboration with artists.In the exhibition there will also be the bergère Ardea CM armchair with velvet upholstery that Zanotta has returned to contemporaneity by inserting it into the collection after a careful philological work based on the master's original projects and technological update carried out with meticulous attention and a semi-artisanal production process.
At Triennale Design Museum until November 4, 2021.
