GIO PONTI AND VISTOSI FLOWER HOLDER FOR SABATINI

GIO PONTI AND VISTOSI FLOWER HOLDER FOR SABATINI

 A very elegant and useful object. This minimalist "vase" was designed by the famed italian designer and architect Gio Ponti, and the smoky glass is by Vistosi, Murano. It was designed for Sabatini in the 1970's. The polished metal top can slide across the top of the glass, and has seven asymmetrically placed openings to hold flowers, but it is just as beautiful without flowers. 6" H x 10" W x 6" D.

 

From the Primavera Gallery collection of Gio Ponti furniture and objects, and Italian 20th century design.
