In January 1943, Domus presented in its typical solutions series Carlo Mollino’s bedroom for a farmhouse in the rice fields (camera da letto per una cascina in risaia). This bedroom designed for publication in a magazine, was entirely imagined, and in part materialized, by and for its author. Published during World War II, this highly personal project, centered around the person in the bed, can be seen as an act of escapism. This paper identifies the project as a work of autobiography, and explores this notion through a close reading of its architectural representational media: text, photography and drawing.
