OKOLO: OKOLO Mollino

Posted by Rob Alderson,

We’re big fans of hero worship here at It’s Nice That and all of us have our personal creative crushes. The fine team at Czech publisher OKOLO have taken that a step further in a bid to celebrate the life and work of Italian designer Carlo Mollino. They have produced a gorgeous book about him, complete with laser-cut paper models of some of his work, and held an exhibition in his honour. As OKOLO’s Adam Štěch put it: “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.” That’s what we call a tribute.
