A Little Peek Into Gio Ponti’s Vast Oeuvre

 

In addition to featuring some historical documents, including interior photos and personal letters, the exhibit showcases a Ponti-designed furniture collection reissued by Molteni&C (a corporate sponsor, along with the textile company Rubelli) and a limited-edition, low-slung armchair, which Ponti designed for his own Milan home on the Via Dezza. The chair is upholstered in a choice of two fabrics, Punteggiato and Rattoppato, patterns that the designer developed for Rubelli in the 1930s.

 

Vivere all Ponti is open until September 28 (by appointment only) in Palazzo Corner Spinelli, the 15th-century edifice that also houses Rubelli’s archives.
