Design Gio Ponti, 1952 - 2015

The combination of various shapes and materials demonstrates Gio Ponti's versatility and in­novation. lt represents architecture, virtuosity of spans, acrobatics of proportions, and an intersection of joints. lt is a geometrie dialogue between glass and rosewood, and a representation of lightness and abstraction.


Gio Ponti

Giovanni “Gio” Ponti, (Milan, November 18, 1891 - Milan, September 16, 1979), is one of the Italian masters of architecture. He was also a designer and essayist and one of the most important of the twentieth century.
Other than the great architectural works which carry his unmistakable signature, he created a vast amount of work in the furniture sector. This is demonstrated in his three Milanese houses which were fully furnished in the "Ponti" style. The houses in via Randaccio, 1925, Casa Laporte in via Brin, 1926 and the last in via Dezza, in 1957 is an "expression" of his home design ideas.
