Tutto Ponti, Gio Ponti archi-designer

Molteni&C is pleased to patronise “Tutto Ponti, Gio Ponti archi-designer”, a major retrospective on the maestro at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris curated by Olivier Gabet, Dominique Forest, Sophie Bouilhet-Dumas and Salvatore Licitra, in collaboration with “Gio Ponti Archives”, from 19 October 2018 to 10 February 2019.


The exhibition covers Gio Ponti’s long career, from 1921 to 1978, highlighting every aspect of his work through more than 500 items, some displayed for the very first time – architectural designs, furniture, ceramics, lamps, glass, magazines – in a setting by Wilmotte & Associés and with Italo Lupi’s graphic project for signage. The BETC agency ensures the graphics of communication documents.

 

 

Molteni&C (a Molteni Group company, along with Dada, UniFor and Citterio), which has renewed its focus on the masters of architecture and design since 2010 with re-makes of Gio Ponti’s furniture, and has therefore decided to support this unique exhibition, one of the most important ever staged in France on the works of the Italian designer. The exhibition underlines the significance of Molteni&C’s continuing efforts to rediscover Gio Ponti’s designs, thereby helping to celebrate the historic role of Italian design in the world.

“An eclectic creator, interested in both industrial production and craftsmanship”, declare the curators of Tutto Ponti. Gio Ponti Archi-Designer, “Ponti enriched post-war architecture, indicating the prospects for a new art of living”. 

Molteni&C is not only patron of the Gio Ponti Archi- Design exhibition but is also contributing by placing a number of original items of furniture from the Molteni Museum Collection at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs’s disposal.
