Demonstrating the shared commitment to quality, craftsmanship and beauty, Custhom, Esme Winter, Ffion Griffith, and Marwood have each upholstered Ponti’s revered design in bespoke patterns commissioned exclusively for the exhibition, titled “Gio Ponti: a cover story”, curated by Port magazine.

In London Molteni&C also presented D.270.1 chair and D.270.2 armchair by Gio Ponti, reissued in collaboration with the Gio Ponti Archives: both are foldable, come in new finishes and woods – black or natural ash, with backrest and seat in fabric, leather or wicker, or alternatively upholstered in the Poesia del Mare fabric designed by Gio Ponti in 1970.
