Gio Ponti Mirrors

Italian, 1891-1979

An architect, furniture and industrial designer and editor, Gio Ponti was arguably the most influential figure in 20th-century Italian modernism.

Ponti designed thousands of furnishings and products — from cabinets, mirrors and chairs to ceramics and coffeemakers — and his buildings, including the brawny Pirelli Tower (1956) in his native Milan, and the castle-like Denver Art Museum (1971), were erected in 14 countries. Through Domus, the magazine he founded in 1928, Ponti brought attention to virtually every significant movement and creator in the spheres of modern art and design.

The questing intelligence Ponti brought to Domus is reflected in his work: as protean as he was prolific, Ponti’s style can’t be pegged to a specific genre.

In the 1920s, as artistic director for the Tuscan porcelain maker Richard Ginori, he fused old and new; his ceramic forms were modern, but decorated with motifs from Roman antiquity. In pre-war Italy, modernist design was encouraged, and after the conflict, Ponti — along with designers such as Carlo Mollino, Franco Albini, Marco Zanuso — found a receptive audience for their novel, idiosyncratic work. Ponti’s typical furniture forms from the period, such as the wedge-shaped Distex chair, are simple, gently angular, and colorful; equally elegant and functional. In the 1960s and ’70s, Ponti’s style evolved again as he explored biomorphic shapes, and embraced the expressive, experimental designs of Ettore Sottsass Jr., Joe Colombo and others.

Ponti's signature furniture piece — the one by which he is represented in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, Germany’s Vitra Design Museum and elsewhere — is the sleek Superleggera chair, produced by Cassina starting in 1957. (The name translates as “superlightweight” — advertisements featured a model lifting it with one finger.)

Ponti had a playful side, best shown in a collaboration he began in the late 1940s with the graphic artist Piero Fornasetti. Ponti furnishings were decorated with bright finishes and Fornasetti's whimsical lithographic transfer prints of things such as butterflies, birds or flowers; the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts possesses a 1950 secretary from their Architetturra series, which feature case pieces covered in images of building interiors and facades. The grandest project Ponti and Fornasetti undertook, however, lies on the floor of the Atlantic Ocean: the interiors of the luxury liner Andrea Doria, which sank in 1956.

Widely praised retrospectives at the Queens Museum of Art in 2001 and at the Design Museum London in 2002 sparked a renewed interest in Ponti among modern design aficionados. (Marco Romanelli’s monograph, which was written for the London show, offers a fine overview of Ponti’s work.) Today, a wide array of Ponti’s designs are snapped up by savvy collectors who want to give their homes a touch of Italian panache and effortless chic.

Pair of Gio Ponti Brass Mirror Produced and Labelled Luigi Fontana, Italy, 1940s
By Fontana Arte, Luigi Fontana, Gio Ponti
Located in Chiavari, Liguria
A rare to find pair of Gio Ponti brass mirrors with solid wooden frames, produced by Luigi Fontana in the 1940s. Measuring 80.5 cm in height and 50 cm in width, these mirrors are of a medium size that makes them versatile and adaptable to various interior design styles. The proportions are carefully considered, creating a balanced and harmonious aesthetic that is both functional and visually appealing. Whether hung on a wall or leaned against a surface, these mirrors become a captivating focal point in any space, reflecting light and adding a sense of depth. One notable aspect of these mirrors is their very good vintage condition, with both mirrors labeled to indicate their authenticity and origin. This attests to their provenance as genuine Luigi Fontana (Fontana Arte) creations, adding to their value and desirability among collectors and design enthusiasts. About the designer: Gio Ponti (1891-1979) was an Italian architect, industrial designer, and artist who is widely regarded as one of the most influential figures in 20th century Italian design. Born in Milan, Italy, Ponti was known for his multifaceted career that spanned architecture, interior design, furniture design, and art, and his work left an indelible mark on the fields of modern design and architecture. As an architect, Ponti's style was characterised by his innovative use of materials, attention to detail, and his ability to create functional yet visually striking spaces. He designed numerous iconic buildings, including the Pirelli Tower in Milan, which is considered a masterpiece of Italian modernist architecture. Ponti's architectural designs were often characterszed by clean lines, open spaces, and a sense of elegance and sophistication. In addition to architecture, Ponti also made significant contributions to the field of industrial and furniture design. He designed a wide range of products, from furniture and lighting to ceramics and glassware, often incorporating bold shapes, vibrant colours, and experimental materials. Ponti's designs were known for their functionality, comfort, and beauty, and he was recognised for his ability to bridge the gap between art and design, creating objects that were both utilitarian and aesthetically pleasing. About the manufacturer: Luigi Fontana (1887-1968) was an Italian glassmaker and entrepreneur who founded the renowned Italian glassware...
