Gio Ponti Monumental Desk and Chair Set in Reeded Mahogany and Brass, Italy 1950’s

$38,000

Gio Ponti (1891-1979)

An extremely rare and important desk set by Gio Ponti in reeded mahogany, comprised of an impeccably crafted floating desk, elegant desk chair, and matching geometric bookcase or end table. The architectural floating desk incorporates seven drawers with elongated brass handles in the front, beautifully reeded and stepped sides, and a reeded prismatic back with a straight edge and sharply angled base, raised on angled and tapered legs.

The matching end table, with two bookshelves, mirrors the desk’s angled and stepped shape and grooved carving, a distinct decorative feature Gio Ponti first introduced in his pieces of the 1930’s, here updated in an angular, modernist pliss√©.

The chair features a gently flared back with five curved cross rails raised on angled and tapered legs that echo the desk’s.

With a certificate of expertise from the Gio Ponti Archives.
