As with all the projects in the Heritage Collection, careful study of drawings, photos and period materials has made it possible to faithfully reproduce the D.847.1 desk in all its details, bringing to light a masterpiece, inspired by the high level of craftsmanship in solid wood processing.
The desk is characterised by a top with curved ends, resembling an aeroplane wing, and a small drawer underneath with a rounded front - a real innovation, which was to become a hallmark of many Ponti products in the following years.
"This elegant and refined desk was modern in its profiles and proportions, which are both classic and innovative, in the play of curves and in the invention of an elegantly rounded drawer.” Salvatore Licitra - Curator of Gio Ponti Archives
