GIO PONTI was an Italian architect and designer who not only designed Milan’s first skyscraper, the harmonica-style Pirelli Building, but he also created the architecture magazine Domus that we often see in tastemaker’s offices today.
I favor a less is more design aesthetic, so I fell in love with how modern and structural Gio Ponti’s collective works were and because he designed for over 60 years, he keeps me busy researching on weekends.
Look closely at these designs and the next time you go furniture shopping notice Gio Ponti’s influences on the furniture being produced today. Everything old is new again.
