ITALIAN DESIGN & THE FABULOUS 1950S OF GIO PONTI I AUCTION : OCTOBER 12, 2106

On 12 October 2016 PIASA will continue their exploration of the heartlands of International Design with a sale encompassing the leading names of 20th century Italian Design and a number of their landmark creations.

 

As home to a welter of firms, craftsmen, editors and high-quality designers, Northern Italy became the nerve-centre of Design during the second half of the 20th century.

 

The PIASA sale retraces Italian Design’s stream of complementary movements and dialogues in the company of its most important exponents, with a special focus on Gio Ponti – notably via the furniture he designed for the mythical Royal Hotel in Naples.

 

The Hotel Royal in Naples & The Fabulous 1950s of Gio Ponti

‘The fabulous 1950s’ – as Gio Ponti liked to call them – saw the post-war boom offer Italian industrialists unheard-of development opportunities. It was against this background of optimism and renewal that Robert Fernandes – son of an antiques dealer and a builder of peerless breadth and imagination – conceived a new type of hotel: one with a swimming-pool. And, to furnish it, he had no hesitation in calling on Gio Ponti, one of the most influential Italian architects and designers of the 20th century, whose work revolutionized the world of architecture and massively contributed to the renewal of post-war Design.
PIASA’s sale includes a special section devoted to Gio Ponti’s furniture for the Hotel Royal, including his elegant dressing-tables, wall units and famous mahogany commodes with their bevelled drawers. These all marked an evolution in the history of Design and helped give it a reforming, avant-garde élan.
