Gio Ponti Black Wood Coffee Tables for Fontana Arte
Wonderful pair of wooden coffee tables designed by Gio Ponti for the fine Italian manufacture Fontana Arte in the 1950s. The coffee tables are published.
The supporting structure has a trapezoidal shape and is made of ebonized black wood. There are 4 supporting feet that deflect at the tip, while underneath the structure they merge, giving stability and elegance to the base.
The top, on the other hand, is made of very beautiful mirrored glass, which gives elegance but at the same time eccentricity and extravagance. The glass is not straight, but curves gently, creating a point.
The two Gio Ponti coffee tables are very special because, placed next to each other, they create an optical illusion, where one seems smaller than the other.
Gio Ponti's coffee tables are ideal for furnishing living rooms, but also halls or important offices.
