The Molteni & C D.847.1 desk was originally conceived in 1947 by Giovanni Ponti, the great Twentieth century architect and designer as part of his "bedroom for a bachelor".
Now, more than 70 years later, the desk is reborn based on the original drawings from the Gio Ponti Archives thanks to the Heritage Collection reissue project by brand Molteni&C.
As with all the projects in the Heritage Collection, a careful study of the drawings, photos and period materials has made it possible to faithfully reproduce the D.847.1 desk in all its details, bringing to light a masterpiece, inspired by the high level of craftsmanship in solid wood processing.
Featuring a useful drawer this versatile desk or console table is made from beautiful honey-stained solid ash wood with feet in satin brass.
Every piece in the Gio Ponti Heritage collection which includes dining tables, sideboards and shelving units carries a serial number and complies with the design and materials in the original Gio Ponti documents. A screen-printed signature of the famous architect is a further guarantee of its origin and authenticity.
