covering the architect’s 50 years of life and work, gio ponti’s design and architectural objects boast his special approach to creating. observing the sketch and the chair exhibited side by side, we can try and reproduce the line ponti followed to develop a piece.

 

 

the furniture and other elements of décor on show are accompanied by photographs of architecture and objects which could not be exhibited and several covers of domus magazine created under ponti’s guidance. the exhibition will last until may 6 — please visit the gallery’s website to find more information about current and future installations.
