Gio Ponti for Cassina, armchair model 516, stained wood, flower print upholstery, Italy, 1955.
This chair is designed by Gio Ponti and manufactured by Cassina. The chair has a few distinct features that stand out. For instance the sculptural, upwards rising armrests and the vertical, open slats on the back. The sculptural tapered legs and the flowing, thinning and thickening lines. This 516 chair by Ponti speaks the design language of Ponti by means of lovely playful details and swooping, theatrical lines.
Gio Ponti (1891-1979) was trained as an architect but was also a poet, a painter, a designer of exhibitions, glass, lightning and of course furniture. He is perhaps most known for being one of the architects of the Pirelli tower in Milan, at one time the tallest building in Europe. But above all, Ponti was responsible for the renewal of Italian architect and decorative arts during the 20th century.
