7 Pieces Inspired By Gio Ponti’s Angular Flair

ARCHITECTURE + DESIGN | BY | January 16, 2019

Though Gio Ponti is best known for his furniture and architecture design (the Ponti-designed Pirelli Tower is perhaps the most iconic modern skyscraper in Milan), he was a creative master of many mediums including painting, graphics and publishing. Pictured here is Villa Namazee in Tehran, Iran, one of Ponti’s two designs in the Middle East. Inspired by his modernity and angular flair, these pieces bring us one step closer to the master.
