Chest of drawers designed in several versions between 1952 and 1955. It features hand- painted white draw fronts with applied handles made of various woods: elm, Italian walnut, mahogany and rosewood. “WOOD is a wonderful material, capable of anything and everything. My love affairs with wood are changeable. I’ve loved bleached Ferrarese walnut, used diagonally with skillful inlays… then I love ash, now I love elmwood” (Gio Ponti, “Stile Industria”, 1958). The elmwood frame is supported by satinized brass feet.
