In the early 1950s, celebrated Italian architect and furniture visionary Gio Ponti experimented with several models of this exquisite case piece. Simply designated Chest of Drawers, the time honored design is bestowed with a robust Elmwood frame enveloped in an ivory finish and accented by handles in elm, Italian walnut, mahogany and rosewood, all resting on lustrous brass feet.
Designer Ippolita Rostagno on the piece, “Beautiful craftsmanship is something I never compromise on. For me, creating contemporary yet timeless pieces is the epitome of quality design. This chest resonates with my aesthetic, as the use of wood and brass is both unexpected and completely appealing.”
