The Montecatini chair was produced in 1938 for the first Palazzo Montecatini in Milan. Ponti designed everything, the architecture and the furnishings. “We spend most of our time at work, so the workplace needs to be one of the finest, most worthy and most civilized environments” (Gio Ponti, “Corriere della Sera”, 1939). Molteni&C produced a remake of the chair in 2012 in two variants, like the original, polished aluminum and with leather-covered seat and backrest.

We spend most of our time at work, so it follows that the workplace should be one of the finest, most worthy and civilized environments
