Coffee Table

Gio Ponti, 1954/55 - 2012

Gio Ponti designed several variants of the D.555.1 coffee table. The re-edited piece was part of the furnishings of Ponti’s home in Via Dezza in Milan. It is made with hand-painted metal legs and grid. “The colours of the different segments of this table are arranged in such a way that their tone changes depending on what angle you look from. Manipulating different points of view in this way is a long-standing tradition that is common to artists and architects alike” (Gio Ponti, “Domus”, 1954).

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.
