Walter Mariotti, Editorial Director, Simona Bordone, Special Projects, Cristina Moro, Archives

 On the occasion of the 90-year anniversary of Domus, the Fondazione Sozzani presents in Milano Domus 90. Gio Ponti, in conjunction with Miart and Salone del Mobile 2018.

Gio Ponti, founder and director of Domus for more than forty years, excelled as an architect and designer across many platforms. The literature on his work is vast.  It is always interesting to review proposals and presentations from these archives on houses that he designed over the course of his career and his exceptional commitment to the furnishing of their interiors. 

He engaged the smallest details of an environment and designed dishes, vases, furniture, chairs, but also fabrics, postcards, and covers, always exploring the expressive potential of the materials, from paper to glass, to the "skin" of a building, every project designed with the same careful attitude to support Gio Ponti's concept of space. This exhibition will highlight the relationship between the many skills of Gio Ponti relying on the Domus Archives and their materials as the basis for this story that traces the vision of a key-figure who still inspires our imagination for his extraordinary design ability.
