Gio Ponti. Art Edition
Experience the boundless vision of one of the greatest architects, designers, and art directors of the 20th century. Shaped in close collaboration with the Gio Ponti Archives and its founder Salvatore Licitra, Gio Ponti is an immersive book scaled to his kaleidoscopic universe featuring texts by Lisa Licitra Ponti and an extensive biographical essay by Stefano Casciani.
This numbered Art Edition (No. 1–1,000) is accompanied by the “Planchart Coffee Table” - an exclusive, square format reproduction of the famous Arlecchino design, produced for TASCHEN by Molteni&C - and a set of four numbered prints of Ponti’s interior ocean liner studies.
“The most resistant element is not wood, is not stone, is not steel, is not glass. The most resistant element in building is art. Let’s make something very beautiful.”
— Gio Ponti
