Gio Ponti, an Italian architect, furniture designer, and editor, played a pivotal role in 20th-century Italian modernism. His work spanned various genres, from Art Deco ceramics for Richard-Ginori (Novecenti movement), glassware for Venini and furniture, the famous Superleggera dining chair, to iconic buildings like the Pirelli Tower in Milan, Italy's talles building,  and the Denver Art Museum. Through his magazine Domus, Ponti championed modern art and design, leaving an indelible mark on the creative landscape. Its distinctive Art Deco & Modernisme design and historical significance make it a sought-after piece among collectors and design enthusiasts alike.  He created numerous pieces for Christofle, including the famous Orgue vase, the Cavallo Grande and these Abondance candlestick.
