Gio Ponti (Italian, 1891-1979)
Birth Place: Milan, Italy
The Italian designer was born in 1891 in Milan, Italy. After WW1, he studied Architecture. Ponti viewed the profession as not just creating the building, but conceiving the interior of spaces and the amenities within the building’s interior. This lead Ponti to design in silver, glass, ceramics, as well furniture to compliment his buildings and the new modern home. In 1957 Ponti created his most popular chair, the Superleggura chair (meaning super light), a chair so light one could lift it with a finger. By the end of his prolific career, Gio Ponti had worked for 120 companies, designed buildings in 13 countries, produced 560 issues as a magazine editor, lectured in 24 countries, fabricated thousands of designs, and created countless paintings and volumes of poetry.
