Giovanni Ponti is one of the most prominent architects of Italian origin. It can boast the merits both in design and architectural design. He opened his studio with the architect Emilio Lancia in Milan in 1927. From the early 1920’s until 1938, he collaborated with the Richard-Ginori ceramic manufacturers, revamping their production. In 1928 he founded the magazine Domus with Gianni Mazzocchi.
The equipment from the lab publisher Gianni Mazzocchi is located on the street Monte di Pietà. The office was designed in a way that allows freedom as well as possible convenient access to nearby objects. Ponti by wyoblonych form shapes perfectly matched to the functions of the proposed facility. Slightly curved symmetrically countertop and cabinets on the wall at the same time create a space enclosed working area, which gives the impression of openness.
The architect came from the simplest form of a rectangle, so that the space is neat and clear visually. The elements are matched to the human ergonomics while maintaining basic shapes. The project is an excellent example of the consistency of architectural design and interior design.
