Cavour is an home-office desk, resulted from an excercice on the research on the perfect structural shape, which Carlo Mollino has studied in his projects for the ski station. The dialectic of opposites finds expression in the balanced contrast between the organic and dynamic lines of the structure and the geometry of the clean and static volumes of the storage compartment and of the chest of drawers.
