Disainer Gio Ponti
3,60 meetri pikkune laud D.859.1 on disainitud peamiselt koosolekulauaks kuni kümnele inimesele. Lihtne disain, peened modernsed jalad. Algselt valmistati laud tugevast tuhapuust pronksiste jalaotstega, nüüd on laud saadaval ka tumedamates toonides. Lisaks on laud saadaval ka kahes väiksemas versioonis.
Giovanni “Gio” Ponti (1891-1979) was one of the most influential Italian architects, also a designer and essayist. Ponti promoted industrial design and his idea of interior furnishing was “sophisticated”, economic, “democratic” and modern. His work was unusually eclectic, reflecting the diverse, often conflicting, styles and ideologies with which he experimented over the years.
