The pro­li­fic archi­tect, desi­gner and Domus edi­tor reinven­ted the look of ever­y­day life from the spoon to the cathe­dral
With more than 100 buil­dings and scores of design objec­ts to his name, Ita­li­an archi­tect and desi­gner Gio Pon­ti revo­lu­tio­ni­zed post­war archi­tec­tu­re and ope­ned up pro­s­pec­ts for new ways of life.
Gio Pon­ti: Archi-Desi­gner covers Ponti’s ent­i­re care­er from 1921 to 1978, high­ligh­t­ing the many aspec­ts of his work: from mecha­ni­cal pro­duc­tion to han­di­c­raft, from archi­tec­tu­re to indus­tri­al design, from fur­ni­tu­re to ligh­t­ing, from the crea­ti­on of maga­zi­nes to his forays into the fields of glass, cer­a­mics and golds­mit­hing. His work exem­pli­fied a cer­tain ten­den­cy iden­ti­fied by his fel­low archi­tect Ernes­to Rogers in 1952, an inte­rest in desi­gning dal cuc­chi­aio alla città (“from the spoon to the town”)–giving equal atten­ti­on and app­ly­ing the same inno­va­ti­ve design thin­king to small spoon and sky­s­cra­per ali­ke.
Fea­turing more than 500 pie­ces, this book traces Ponti’s mul­ti­di­sci­pli­na­ry jour­neys through archi­tec­tu­re, fur­ni­tu­re and design in his work for pri­va­te homes and public buil­dings, inclu­ding uni­ver­si­ties and cathe­drals.
Regar­ded as one of the most influ­en­ti­al archi­tec­ts and desi­gners of the 20th cen­tu­ry, Gio­van­ni “Gio” Pon­ti (1891–1979) estab­lished his archi­tec­tu­ral firm in 1921 and was extra­or­di­na­ri­ly pro­li­fic from that point on, working as an archi­tect, indus­tri­al desi­gner, artist, fur­ni­tu­re desi­gner, tea­cher and wri­ter. In 1928 he foun­ded the maga­zi­ne Domus, which he would direct for most of his life, hel­ping to spread his visi­on of a revi­ta­li­zed modern aes­the­tics in Ita­li­an indus­tri­al pro­duc­tion, archi­tec­tu­re, inte­rior design and the deco­ra­ti­ve arts.
