Dine with Gio Ponti

Gio Ponti died 32 Septembers ago, but you can still have dinner with him. A large set of silverware created by the Milan-born architect, industrial designer, poet, painter, and founding editor of Domus goes on the block this afternoon in Chicago at Wright’s Living Contemporary auction. Estimated to sell for between $5,000 and $7,000, the 85-piece set includes a five-piece service for 12 with 26 additional serving pieces. Ponti designed the “Diamond” pattern in 1958 for Taunton, Massachusetts-based Reed & Barton, which promoted it in advertisements that asked “Are you ready for it? The most advanced sterling of our generation.” Other highlights of today’s sale of more than 300 modern and contemporary art and design objects include a Dandelion sculpture by Harry Bertoia, an aerodynamic Wendell Castle rocker, and a smashing oil and enamel work by Rudolf Stingel.
