Gio Ponti Chandelier structure in Brass and 10 diffusers in Glass

$ 90,000
  • Description
    An eclectic personality, from his early days he was active in the fields of architecture, painting, graphics and set design. He graduated in architecture from the Milan Polytechnic in 1920. In 1926 he founded-with editor Gianni Mazzocchi-the magazine Domus, which he directed until his death. In 1931 he was called to the artistic direction of Luigi Fontana, and in 1932 - together with Pietro Chiesa - he founded FontanaArte.
    In 1952 he founded the Ponti-Fornaroli-Rosselli studio with architect Alberto Rosselli. Here he began the period of most intense and fruitful activity in both architecture and design, abandoning the frequent references to the neoclassical past and focusing on more innovative ideas.
    Here we have a rare chandelier designed in 1955 for Arredoluce, composed of a brass structure with then circular opaline glass diffusers.
