Yesterday we have launched our long-time preparing book OKOLO Mollino. In collaboration with printers from Signpek, design paper masters from Studio Činčera, friends from 3DH showroom and Fulvio Ferrari from Casa Mollino in Turin we created a decent graphic gem.
Thank You very much for the help and support as well as all friends and visitors who came yesterday and enjoy our new book.
Now available in 3DH showroom as well as another stores and museums following, the book in edition of 80 pieces tells story about Italian design genius, Carlo Mollino.
The World of Carlo Mollino
Carlo Mollino represents one of the most authentic creative figures of the last century. Mollino became a modern Renaissance man whose production embraced the entire cultural and technological world of his time thanks to his undisguised love of life and everything that our world offers. For us in OKOLO, the artist personifies a phenomenal medium of creativity and entertainment, which presents a broad spectrum of most our interests through the life of a single person.
This book and original products serve as our tribute to the master. We pay tribute to a hedonist who managed to enjoy life to the fullest, surrounded by everything he was fascinated and amused by.
The book, which presents the work of Carlo Mollino in a different way than usual, is divided into six basic chapters, i.e. six life stages and six of Mollino’s passions. Apart from a text on a specific theme, each part brings a materialized symbol of Mollino’s creativity. Thus, the reader can assemble miniature models of Mollino’s fascinating projects, implementations, and symbols related to Mollino’s life. Paper models serve to update the versatile activities of the charming Italian and place his work into a new context. Mollino will be gradually presented as a visionary designer, excellent architect, courageous race driver, fearless acrobatic pilot, style-setting skier, photographer and womanizer. Mollino is a phenomenon.
