Gio Ponti

Giovanni "Gio" Ponti (18 November 1891 – 16 September 1979) was an Italian architect and industrial designer. His designs helped reinvent Italian design and made him a leading figure of the 20th century Italian Modernism. He designed the iconic Pirelli Tower in Milan, as one of his mature works. In 1928, he founded the Domus Magazine, which he supervised until his death.

Ponti made his public debut as an industrial designer in 1923 at the first Biennial Exhibition of the Decorative Arts in Monza. He designed ceramics, a line of furnishings for the Rinascente department stores, under the name Domus Nova, maiolica vases, porcelain, sinks and toilets, stylish and colorful glass bottles, the curvy La Pavoni coffee machine of 1948, some extravagantly vibrant, some minimalistic lamps and of course his famous chairs.

He worked for famous Italian furniture producer Cassina, designing an angular armchair, named "Distex", and the very famous 1957 "Superleggera" (Superlight) chair, which was sturdy but also so light that a child could lift it up. His another famous design is the "Due Foglie" sofa. He was a leading member of post-war reconstruction in Italy and an influence to younger artists such as Alessandro Mendini and Ettore Sottsass.
