Writing Desk

Gio Ponti, 1947 - 2021

Small console desk in Italian walnut with pointed brass feet flaunting a tapered, almost aerial shape, designed by Gio Ponti in the early Post-War period. In particular, the desk features a top with curved ends, resembling an aeroplane wing, and a small drawer underneath with a rounded front - a real innovation at the time - which was to become a hallmark of many Ponti products in the years to come.

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.
