Gio Ponti in Venice  for the 2012 Architecture Biennale


Successful opening, Tuesday 28th September, of the exhibition “Vivere alla Ponti” at the Palazzo Corner Spinelli, the Rubelli company’s historical head offices. An exhibition presented during Venice’s 13th International Architectural Exhibition were Molteni&C and Rubelli paid homage to Gio Ponti with the participation of Lisa e Letizia Ponti and Fulvio Irace, architecture historian. The exhibition’s main protagonists was the furniture collection reissued by Molteni&C and the limited edition of an armchair designed by Gio Ponti for his via Dezza home in Milan, upholstered in the Punteggiato and Rattoppato velvets, also designed for Rubelli by Gio Ponti and displayed at the 1934 Biennale. The chair is part of the Molteni&C collection, produced thanks to an exclusive agreement with the Ponti heirs and with the artistic management of Cerri&Associati. The collection includes furniture designed by Ponti between 1935 (chair for the first Palazzo Montecatini) and the 50s (bookcase, chest of drawers, small table, frames and rug for Casa Ponti in via Dezza in Milan, 1956-57). The Punteggiato and Rattoppato fabrics are respectively a chiselled velvet with a geometrical-design on metal background and velvet worked with abstract graphics. The display is completed by the exhibition “Vivere alla Ponti. Experiments in domestic life and architecture for living and working”. Organised by the Milan Order of Architects in collaboration with Molteni&C. The collaboration between Molteni&C and Rubelli, two Italian design excellencies famous for modern furniture and top range fabrics, is indication of their zealous valorisation of heritage. Well aware that time has in no way affected its value and beauty. The exhibition is open from August 27th to September 28th From Monday to Friday, 10:00am to 6:00 pm Rubelli Palazzo Corner Spinelli San Marco 3877 30124 Venezia
