Arabesco is one of the most celebrated products of the Italian Design and it is born from a four-handed work in the laboratories of carpentry. "From the original Mollino sketch, the drawings were created in the 1:1 natural scale and then modeledl". In one of these drawings, there was a clear note from Mollino — "hole to be traced in curved wood" — in order to remove mass and visually lighten the object. The result is accuracy and fluidity, in a balance between the curved and caved shapes of the structure.
