The Legacy of Carlo Mollino

One of the by-products of blogging just once a week (instead of every day) is that the focus moves from quantity toward quality. We hope that, while the number of eyebrows and related body parts might be lower overall, the particular choices are more...appreciated. Or noteworthy. Or enjoyable.

We spent a long time this morning reading about the legacy of Italian designer Carlo Mollino. He was diversely talented, with a career spanning architecture, furniture design (the chairs in the photos here are of his creation), photography, and literature. A New York Times article gives some background, but we suggest doing a Google image search for his name and just sitting back and enjoying what crops up.

Meanwhile, we'll be sitting back and enjoying these Italian eyebrows of the 1950s, which Signore Mollino photographed with his unique chairs...
