Italian architect and designer Giò Ponti creations will be on display from the end of this week onwards in the U.S., as a collection of his work is exhibited at the Georgia Museum of Art.

Born in Milan, Italy, in 1891, Ponti kept working all over his 60-years career and left a permanent mark on the manufacturing industry, design and architecture of his country. He made a successful attempt to imagine objects whose decorative beauty matched to their functionality: in his own words, “The most resistant element is neither cement, nor wood, nor stone, nor steel, nor glass. The most resistant material in construction is art”.

“Modern Living: Giò Ponti and the 20th-Century Aesthetics of Design” will be on view until September 17th, 2017.
