About The Designer:
Like so many of his peers, Gio Ponti was both a leading architect and industrial designer - so much so he’s considered by some as the “Father of Modern Italian Design”. As a young man, he fought in the First World War before studying architecture in the immediate post-war years. He would go on to create dozens of incredible designs, culminating in the 1950s Pirelli Tower, just the second skyscraper to be built at the time in his home-town of Milan.
But architecture was just one of his passions. As a prolific industrial designer, he created (literally) thousands of household products and furnishings, from chairs, lamps and tables to even strikingly-fashioned bottles. Over the course of his career, he worked for over 100 companies.
When it came to design, there was seemingly nothing that Ponti couldn’t do. He even founded a magazine - Domus - that catered to the latest design trends, and served as a lecturer in architecture at a Milan university.
