Writing Desk

Gio Ponti, 1947 - 2021

Drawings, photos, and period materials were carefully studied to ensure a faithful reproduction of D.847.1 in all its details. The desk has a top with curved ends, resembling an aeroplane wing, and a small drawer underneath with a rounded front - an innovation that would later become a hallmark of many of Ponti's productions.

Design Gio Ponti, 1947 - 2021

"This sophisticated and refined writing desk plays a mo­dem role with its profiles and classic and innovative pro­portions in a play of curves and its elegantly rounded drawer."

(Salvatore Licitra - Curator of Gio Ponti Archives)


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.
