Product Description
Carlo Molino's personal wealth allowed him the luxury of designing and making furniture pieces without regard to their financial viability. This resulted in a body of work that is unique, rare, and often times specifically designer for a project, as is the case with the Lutrario chair and ottoman for the Lutrario Hall in Turin. This chair and ottoman for the Lutrario Hall in Turin, Italy, were made in 1959, and were reupholstered by the Lutrario Hall in 1986 in accordance to the mandatory fire-prevention standards of the time Apart from a coffee table that he designed for Singer & Sons in 1950, his furniture designs were never produced in a factory or intended for the general public.
