The Gilda was designed by Italian artist Carlo Mollino (1905-1973) in 1954. Mollino studied mechanical engineering and art history, followed by architecture at Turin University. He was influenced by both futurism and surrealism, and his furniture is well known for its biomorphic forms. Mollino developed and patented a process for cold molding plywood and designed a few pieces constructed entirely of continuous molded wood. The Gilda is a beautiful piece, featuring an oak-dyed ash frame and bronzed-brass hardware.
