Gio Ponti Domus Nova coffee table Italy 1950

About the Item

Iconic coffee table by one of the most important Italian architects of all times, Gio Ponti. A solid caramel walnut table crafted by Domus Nova. It's got that classy Gio Ponti shape with on top a sleek glass surface. A beautiful feature is the diamond-shaped graphic on the wood underneath the glass. The pinpoint feet have a super recognizable shape, making it iconic, especially when you look at it from the side. We've done a full restoration on the wooden frame, but we left the underside untouched to keep that original patina and age. The glass top sits on a wooden ledge, maintaining its originality with some scratches that tell a story of age and use. Literature; Gio Ponti. Le navi: il progetto degli interni navali 1948-1953. Giovanni ‘Gio’ Ponti, born in Milan 1891, was an important architect, industrial and furniture designer, artist, and publisher. During his career, which spanned six decades, Ponti built more than a hundred buildings in Italy and in the rest of the world. He designed a considerable number of decorative art and design objects as well as furniture. Ponti studied architecture at the Polytechnic University there. After serving in the army during World War I, he graduated in 1921. In 1923, Ponti entered into a partnership with Mino Fiocchi and Emilio Lancia and was influenced by the neoclassical Novecento Italiano movement. In 1928, he established the Domus magazine, which focused on architecture, art, and design, and is still being published today. During the late 1920s, Ponti built houses in Milan and Paris, including the domuses, which looked like typical Milanese homes from the outside, but had innovative interiors, with flexible spaces and modular furniture.
