"Sensual and surreal, the work of Carlo Mollino finally gets the book it deserves... Find page after gorgeous page of furniture... The best book about the best architect to design furniture written by the two people in the world who really know about him."-Nigel Coates, Spoon "Beautifully produced... With erudite essays by authors, [...], this gorgeous book is a must for every designer's library."-Emma Dent Coad, Building Design "[Mollino] got to photograph a lot of beautiful women, write a really good guidebook about downhill skiing, crash aeroplanes and race at Le Mans. Leonardo and Michelangelo, for all their sublime talents, never left such legacy."-Guardian "For admirers of Italian design [...] an invaluable purchase... Luxurious."-Blueprint "Where some designers strive for simplicity, [Mollino] delighted in complexity: a multi-layered character himself, his furniture is as convoluted and contorted as his view of life."-Crafts "If you call yourself a designer of furniture, you might be just that; on the other hand you might, like Carlo Mollino, be a 'mechanic, book-keeper, lawyer, boor, model of good manners, swallower of bitter pills, charmeur, dancing partner of elderly ladies and snake charmer' during those moments when you are not immersed in bouts of poetic creativity."-Timothy Brittain-Catlin, World of Interiors
