[tps_header]Considered one of the most famous and influential architects of the 20th century, Gio Ponti revolutionized the worlds of architecture and design.
Born in Milan (Italy) in 1891, Gio earned a degree in architecture after serving his country’s military in WWI. His first job was in an Italian ceramics company, serving as artistic director, and began to pursue architecture soon after that. His early career in ceramics design influenced the rest of his career, as Ponti never viewed architecture as simply creating buildings. Instead, he often conceived of the building’s interior as well, creating furniture such as chairs, coffee tables, lighting pieces, and even items like ceramics, glassware, and silverware.
Today, our inspiration goes around Ponti’s lighting creations, so we’ll show you 10 Mid-Century Lighting Designs by Gio Ponti!
