Architect, designer and artist, GIO PONTI (Milan 1891-1979). In 1927, he founded Il Labirinto with Lancia, Buzzi , Marelli, Venini and Chiesa to produce high quality furniture and objects. From 1923 to 1930, he was artistic director of Richard Ginori. Thanks to the creation of the Domus magazine in 1928 (which he directed almost permanently until his death), Ponti made a profound contribution to the renewal of Italian production in the sector, giving him a new impetus. Ponti has been a great promoter of the Biennial of Monza, after the Triennale of Milan, of the Compasso d'Oro awards and of the ADI (Industrial Design Association). As an architect, he created the symbol of modern Milan, the Pirelli skyscraper, designed with Fornaroli, Rosselli and Nervi in??1956. In 1957 he designed the famous Superleggera chair for Cassina, the greatest achievement of long and fruitful work collaboration. To his planning activities, he added educational activities, teaching at the Faculty of Architecture of Milan from 1936-1961.
