About

Wall sconce square 'Screen of Light' Gio Ponti limited edition Italy 2012-2017 polished brass Wall sculpture light in polished brass, timeless, iconic design. Handcrafted product, realised by Pollice Illuminazione from the original drawings of Gio Ponti with license provided by eredi Gio Ponti 2012/2017 in limited and certificated edition. Upon request it can house the innovative light technology of healthy dim to warm that simulates sunlight. It provides indirect light, wired with sockets that allow a constant technological updating. 3 x LED 10W 230V E14 110V or 230V 2200-2700K healthy dim to warm. Rather than lamps, these objects of timeless design could be defined as magnificent containers of light, we realise immediately that the essence is shown by the rigour, important foundation of all the work done by the great Architect. The frames, hence, have a double finishing touch: the external part polished and the internal one varnished in white, as the rest of the bright boxes. Thereby the internal part spreads the indirect light created by the brass curtains, whilst the bottom, open on its sides, canalizing the light in a subtle bright frame that makes the content stand out. At Pollice Light Gallery Milan: a project that brings together influential contemporary designers, architects and artists in order to create extraordinary architectural lights as are the "Quadri di luce" "Screen of Light". A space in continuous evolution, a site to encounter and compare ideas, where the future of light is the absolute protagonist. Manufacturing of this product has been realised with hand crafted procedures and not industrial. Small imperfections and not homogeneous aging of the surface are deliberately present and they are a feature of the product, proving the hand-made manufacturing procedure. The key words of this commitment are: beauty, tradition, care, quality, design, art, luxury, technology, wellbeing, made in Italy, circadian rhythm, healthy light, timeless, iconic.

About the Designer

Gio Ponti

An architect, furniture and industrial designer and editor, Gio Ponti was arguably the most influential figure in 20th-century Italian modernism. Ponti (1891–1979) designed thousands of furnishings and products — from cabinets, lamps and chairs to ceramics and coffeemakers — and his buildings, including the brawny Pirelli Tower (1956) in his native Milan, and the castle-like Denver Art Museum (1971), were erected in 14 countries. Through Domus, the magazine he founded in 1928, Ponti brought attention to virtually every significant movement and creator in the spheres of modern art and design.The questing intelligence Ponti brought to Domus is reflected in his work: as protean as he was prolific, Ponti’s style can’t be pegged to a specific genre. In the 1920s, as artistic director for the Tuscan porcelain maker Richard Ginori, he fused old and new; his ceramic forms were modern, but decorated with motifs from Roman antiquity. In pre-war Italy, modernist design was encouraged, and after the conflict, Ponti — along with designers such as Carlo Mollino, Franco Albini, Marco Zanuso — found a receptive audience for their novel, idiosyncratic work. Ponti’s typical furniture forms from the period, such as the wedge-shaped Distex chair, are simple, gently angular, and colorful; equally elegant and functional. In the 1960s and ’70s, Ponti’s style evolved again as he explored biomorphic shapes, and embraced the expressive, experimental designs of Ettore Sottsass Jr., Joe Colombo and others.His signature furniture piece — the one by which he is represented in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, Germany’s Vitra Design Museum and elsewhere — is the sleek Superleggera chair, produced by Cassina starting in 1957. (The name translates as “superlightweight” — advertisements featured a model lifting it with one finger.) Ponti had a playful side, best shown in a collaboration he began in the late 1940s with the graphic artist Piero Fornasetti. Ponti furnishings were decorated with bright finishes and Fornasetti's whimsical lithographic transfer prints of things such as butterflies, birds or flowers; the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts possesses a 1950 secretary from their Architetturra series, which feature case pieces covered in images of building interiors and facades. The grandest project Ponti and Fornasetti undertook, however, lies on the floor of the Atlantic Ocean: the interiors of the luxury liner Andrea Doria, which sank in 1956.Widely praised retrospectives at the Queens Museum of Art in 2001 and at the Design Museum London in 2002 sparked a renewed interest in Ponti among modern design aficionados. (Marco Romanelli’s monograph written for the London show, offers a fine overview of Ponti’s work.) Today, a wide array of Ponti’s designs are snapped up by savvy collectors who want to give their homes a touch of Italian panache and effortless chic.Find a range of Gio Ponti furniture on 1stDibs.
