Vittorio Dassi (1893-1973) was an Italian furniture designer in the 1940s and 1950s. His works are characterized by the use of fine woods such as rosewood, and walnut, often decorated with inlaid panels and glass signed by prominent master glassworkers. The pieces of furniture are comparable to the refined style of Gio Ponti, to whom Dassi was linked by important collaborations, after replacing his father in the company Dassi Mobili Moderni.
