About The Artist:

Gio Ponti is an extraordinarily important figure in 20th century art & design. A cultural catalyst who celebrated other designers’ work and defined the terms of the design debate as an editor, writer and teacher. As a designer, Gio Ponti worked for 120 companies. As an architect, he built in 13 countries. As a magazine editor, he produced 560 issues and wrote at least one article for each. As an academic, he lectured in 24 countries. He also found time to dictate some 2,500 letters and draw 2,000 illustrated letters, as well as for painting and poetry.

Ponti was a true polymath, his work was unusually eclectic, reflecting the diverse, often conflicting, styles and ideologies with which he experimented over the years. He was intensely curious, unusually open-minded and eager to explore new ideas. He forged firm friendships with colleagues all over the world, who often visited him at home in Milan or in his studio. Once a garage, the studio was so huge that Ponti’s assistants literally rode up to their desks on scooters. His friends still tell stories of his charm, and his kindness toward them.
