Giò Ponti

Mathieu Matégot

Italian designer, architect and editor, Gio Ponti (1891-1979) is one of the most influential design visionaries of the 20thcentury. Ponti designed a wide array of furniture and products through his career – from cabinets, lamps and chairs to ceramics and glassware – and his buildings, including Pirelli tower in Milan, and Denver Art Museum, were erected in 14 countries. Through Domus, the design magazine he founded in 1928, Ponti promoted a new curiosity and open-mindedness towards new design thinking.
