Gio Ponti for Casa e Giardino, lounge chairs, Zak & Fox fabric, walnut, Italy, circa 1939.
This sensuous set of armchairs is designed by Gio Ponti. The chairs feature a round back, a thick seat and small tapered legs. The armrests are high and provide a sheltered feel for the sitter. The design is typical for the overall aesthetic feel of Gio Ponti who is known for furniture with clear proportions and great usability. This set is both softly shaped as architectural as the design is strong and stately. The chairs have been reupholstered in a Zak & Fox fabric.
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.
