Randaccio Wall Circular Mirror

By Gubi

£618.00

  • Description

    One of Gio Ponti's signature designs is the Randaccio mirror from 1925. Designed for his own home on Via Randaccio in Milano, his very first architectural project, the Randaccio mirror decorated the walls in his bedroom on the 3rd floor together with other furniture designed especially for the apartment. The Randaccio mirror unites elegance with simplicity and is characterized by its atypical crown-like detailing on the top, a detail used by Ponti in several of his works within design and art. The mirror has references to its original time period but is able to add personality to every contemporary setting and enrich the decoration, whether it is a bedroom, bathroom, hallway or a dressing room.

    Gio Ponti

    Architect, designer, critic, illustrator, Gio Ponti (1891-1979) took his degree in Milan and in 1921 joined the studio of Emilio Lancia and Mino Fiocchi.
    From 1923 to 1930 he was Richard Ginori's artistic director. In 1928 he launched the magazine Domus, which he directed, apart from certain brief intervals, right up to his death.
    Ponti was the standard-bearer of Italian design, a leading light and supporter of the Monza Biennale, then the Milan Triennale, the Compasso d'Oro awards and ADI (Association of Industrial Design). He collaborated with a number of different artists. In 1957 he designed the super-celebrated Superleggera chair for Cassina, the crowning achievement of a long and fruitful working association.
    Ponti's projects are manifold, covering every aspect from industrial design to teaching in the Milan faculty of architecture, from publishing to architecture. Amongst his more important achievements we remember the Pirelli skyscraper building in Milan (1956-1959).
