Gio Ponti, 1956-57 / 2012

Gio Ponti designed the D.357.2 bookcase between 1956 and 1957 for his family home in via Dezza in Milan. Remade in 2012, in partnership with the Gio Ponti Archives, it features shaped multilayer covered in elm and a natural transparent finish, then painted white by hand, like the original. It is the first piece, noticed in the home of Ponti’s heirs, of the Ponti/Molteni&C collection.

These furnishings are all to do with living, with a simple life in which books play a vital part. Hence the presence of books, first and foremost, as well as space for magazines – windows on the world, among the liveliest and most characteristic features of life today
