Modus Miami, Florida’s exclusive distributor of Molteni & C, is proud to present the Gio Ponti collection in its Design District showroom. This exciting, exclusive relationship was established in 2009; the collection brings back to life furniture and furnishings designed by the renowned 20th century design legend, Gio Ponti.
The compilation was presented at the 2012 Salone del Mobile. Molteni & C’s team completed extensive research, plus selection and analysis of Ponti’s prototypes and the collection was made possible through collaboration and an exclusive agreement with Ponti’s heirs.
A vision realized with art direction from Studio Cerri & Associati, the collection includes furniture and interior decor designed by Gio Ponti from 1935 and through the 1950s.
Modus Miami was co-founded by Sergio Patruno and Donato Calandriello. For more information, visit www.modusmiami.com or stop by the showroom at 4100 NE 2nd Ave., Suite 103 in Miami’s Design District.
