Gio Ponti 646 "Leggera" Dining Chairs for Cassina, 1952, Set of 10

About the Item

Gio Ponti 646 "Leggera" dining chairs for Cassina, black ash-wood and rope seat, Italy, 1952, set of ten. The model 646 "Leggera" is an icon of chair design and of Cassina’s masterful artisan craftsmanship. A tasteful and versatile piece reminiscent of the sleek lines of the traditional Chiavari chair, "Leggera" is the wood chair par excellence as well as one of the flagship pieces in the partnership between Gio Ponti, Cesare Cassina and the company’s joinery experts. Italian architect and founder and director of Domus, Gio Ponti (1891-1979) will be remembered for his attention to surface and urge towards simplicity in the relation of structure to form. Ever since the start of his career, the work of Giovanni (Gio) Ponti was profoundly innovative, going beyond the return to neoclassicism characteristic of early twentieth century architecture. Ponti made the architect a promoter of culture and an interpreter of the new bourgeois taste. Our atelier carefully restored the chairs. Slight signs of use and time.
