"Photography is not an art. Neither is painting, nor sculpture, literature or music. They are only different media for the individual to express his aesthetic feelings… You do not have to be a painter or a sculptor to be an artist. You may be a shoemaker. You may be creative as such. And, if so, you are a greater artist than the majority of the painters whose work is shown in the art galleries of today."
-Alfred Stieglitz

Casa Devalle by Carlo Mollino, 1939-40 in Turin, Italy.

This small apartment (just 70 sq m) was conceived as an organic and surreal entity, one that combined Mollino’s love of aeronautical engineering and the human body. It is unique in that the scenographic interior was pragmatically designed to reflect the occupant’s needs, (his friend the architect Giorgio Devalle), but it was also formed to project Devalle’s desires and aspirations: an innovatory precursor of the house as a stage-set interior.|x|
