Gio Ponti

Yesterday we spoke about our long relationship with Andrée Putman and today we’ve added yet another illustrious designer to the blog: Gio Ponti. Mr. Ponti was the Renaissance Man of the Italian design world, working on everything from furniture to magazine publishing. But it is a 1933 wash basin design that Rapsel has put into production. The sleek Montecatini washbasin is wall-mounted, rectangular, and made of white ceramic or titanic resin. Water notably drains to the right, for a design that looks as progressive today as it must’ve over 70 years ago.
