The OKOLO creative group which was founded in 2009 on an impulse by Adam ŠtěchJakub Štěch, and Matěj Činčera, famous for their focus on creating original projects in the form of exhibitions and products, recently completed a print project called OKOLO Mollino as a tribute to one of the most authentic creative figures of the last century, Carlo Molino (1905 -1973).  The book was created with the collaboration of Studio Činčera and Signpek print.

Dedicated to the Italian designer, the book features laser-cut models of his creations and was completed entirely by hand!  Its first edition consists of only 80 pieces and for the publication’s launch, the OKOLO group created a special installation in the 3DH furniture showroom in Prague.  Special designed prints, several books on Mollino and paper models couldn’t have been placed anywhere but on an original Cavour table by Carlo Mollino (produced by Zanotta).

> Carlo Mollino personifies a phenomenal medium of creativity and entertainment, which presents a broad spectrum of most our interests through the life of a single person….We pay tribute to a hedonist who managed to enjoy life to the fullest, surrounded by everything he was fascinated in and amused by.<

The book is divided into six basic chapters, i.e. six life stages and six of Mollino’s passions. Apart from a text on a specific theme, each part brings a materialized symbol of Mollino’s creativity. Thus, the reader can assemble miniature models of Mollino’s fascinating projects, implementations, and symbols related to Mollino’s life. Paper models serve to update the versatile activities of the charming Italian and place his work into a new context. Mollino will be gradually presented as a visionary designer, excellent architect, courageous race driver, fearless acrobatic pilot, style-setting skier, photographer and womanizer.

The price of the book is 43€ and you can order it directly by sending your request to the OKOLO group. A second edition of 80 pieces will be available soon!

Sketchbooks by Alison Worman

Today I am excited to share a beautiful bunch of sketchbooks by a talented student of Maryland Institute College of Art (aka MICA). Alison Worman is only a junior majoring in Fibers and Book Arts, but her work is already so well developed.

She says ” I am interested in the way that collage, fabric and sewing techniques can be applied to the form of the book. I explore these relationships frequently in my sketchbooks.”

Her books are exploding with fabric, stitching, collage and drawings. Each spread is a new interesting composition made from so many different layers of materials.

The mixtures of techniques are exciting: a series of stitches fills in the head area of a collaged magazine photo, a circular cutting of tracing paper sits over a collage and ink drawing.

I am intrigued to see what Alison will do next. I would love to see an enormous version similar to her sketchbook work. A giant drawing/collage/stitched piece. You can keep up with Alison’s work on her blog here. She is working on a lot of cool projects.
