Gio Ponti was one of Italy's most influential designers whose work includes automobiles, furniture, interiors, and buildings.
Working in a multitude of materials, he is a pivotal figure in the history of twentieth-century architecture and design, and his work continues to inspire young designers who are increasingly rediscovering it today. This expansive and exhaustively researched monograph chronicles the complete spectrum of Gio Pontiís output, from early ceramic work as design director for Richard Ginori to his last and most famous architectural works, Milanís Pirelli Tower and the Museum of Modern Art in Denver. Also featured are Pontiís automobile designs for Alfa Romeo, interiors for Italian luxury liners, bathroom fixtures for American Standard, the famous Superleggera chair for Cassina, and the Alitalia offices in New York.
