Gio Ponti (1891-1979) was the archetypal renaissance man whose design sensibility was one that could be translated to a wide array of media. From cutlery to skyscrapers, Ponti’s aesthetic translated to different forms and functions; he designed interiors for homes, businesses, chapels, and even the infamous Andrea Doria ocean liner, which still lives at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean off Nantucket. While Ponti was exceptionally knowledgeable about classical design and order, his work became progressively modern towards the latter half of his career.
