Gio Ponti, 1952-55 / 2012

Dresser designed in several versions between 1952 and 1955. It features white hand-painted drawer fronts with applied handles made of elm, Italian walnut, mahogany and rosewood. “Wood is a wonderful material that you can do everything with. My love affair with wood has changed over time. I’ve been passionate about Ferrara wood burr bleached with oxygenated water and placed diagonally with clever inlay work... one minute I love ash and then I am in love with elm” (Gio Ponti, “Stile Industria”, 1958). The elm wood structure rests on satin-finish brass feet.

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.
