Regarded as one of the most influential architects and designers of the twentieth century, Gio Ponti (1891-1979) was a prolific creator, as much interested in industrial production as in handicrafts, who has revolutionised post-war architecture while opening up the prospects for a new way of life. This book covers his entire career from 1921 to 1978, highlighting the many aspects of his work, from architecture to industrial design, from furniture to lighting, from the creation of magazines to a foray into the fields of glass, ceramics and goldsmithery. More than 500 pieces trace this multi-disciplinary journey through architecture, furniture, installations for private homes or public buildings (universities, cathedrals), displaying the creative world of this legendary figure of the Italian scene, whose generosity and enthusiasm have stimulated his contemporaries and still inspire new generations of designers and architects.
