Molteni Gio Ponti Round D.154.5 Armchair


The Molteni & C Round D.154.5 armchair was originally conceived in 1954 by Giovanni Ponti, the great Twentieth century architect and designer. More than 60 years later, the chair is reborn based on the original drawings from the Gio Ponti Archives thanks to the Heritage Collection reissue project by brand Molteni&C.

Incredibly fond of this chair, Gio Ponti used it in many of his architectural projects. The name, Round D.154.5, comes from the rounded shape of the seat and backrests, also referred to as the "soap bar". Round D.154.5 is sometimes called "Otto Pezzi" (Eight Pieces) as there eight pieces that make up the chair: backrest, seat, two curved plywood elements and four legs, which screw into the seat to hold the whole thing together.

For the covers it is possible to select them in one single material or you can have the sides in a different material. The cost will be determined by the most expensive material used. There are a huge range of fabrics and leathers in the Molteni&C collection to choose from, or you can provide your own fabric, subject to approval by Molteni. If you would like more information, please contact our design team who can send out samples and discuss all the options with you in more detail.

The steel legs are in a satin brass or a black chrome finish. Feet tips in non-slip plastic.

Every piece in the Gio Ponti 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.
