Designer, architect and essayist, Gio Ponti is remembered as one of the most influential dreamer of XX° century. During its long career, he explored the world of design in its most variegated shades, and his creations concretely contributed to reconstruct the Italian style in the postwar period. Domus, the newspaper he founded in 1928, introduced a gust of fresh air and curiosity in the word of design, contributing to influence the target’s taste. Gio Ponti worked in a variety of fields, including contract, interior, furniture and artistic-decorative complements, bringing in all of them a new perspective and a specific message: surround yourself with beauty and enjoy life in its whole. Among the most appreciated creations, the Superleggera chair, designed for Cassina. It is remembered as an almost avant-gardist experiment, a perfect balance between lightness and sturdiness, elegance and practicality.
