Wallpaper - - Newspaper - ‘Tutto Ponti: Gio Ponti, Archi-de­signer’ is at Musée des Arts Dé­co­rat­ifs from 19 Oc­to­ber-10 Fe­bru­ary, mad­

Calling Gio Ponti a poly­math is like calling Mozart a mu­si­cian – the term hardly be­gins to do him jus­tice. He was a cre­ative dy­namo, yet his work’s wit and play­ful­ness has, per­haps, led crit­ics to un­der­value his im­por­tance. Open­ing this au­tumn, a ma­jor new show at the Musée des Arts Dé­co­rat­ifs in Paris of­fers a chance to re­assess the full range of Ponti’s out­put. Sup­ported by Molteni & C, this is Ponti’s first ret­ro­spec­tive in France and will in­clude more than 500 items from pub­lic and pri­vate col­lec­tions, some never shown be­fore. The ex­hi­bi­tion, de­signed by Wil­motte & As­so­ciés in col­lab­o­ra­tion with graphic de­signer Italo Lupi, will be ac­com­pa­nied by a 320-page cat­a­logue com­piled by cu­ra­tors So­phie Du­mas, Olivier Ga­bet, Do­minique For­est and Sal­va­tore Lic­i­tra.
