Description

Pair of cups and coffee pot belonging to the porcelain service created by Gio Ponti - Richard Ginori for Lloyd Triestino's ship Victoria in the 1930s.

The first ship Victoria was built in the late 1920s and entered service in 1932. It was designed to replace two older ships on the route between Italy and Alexandria, Egypt, and it was the most advanced among those of the Italian fleet of the time.

Designed by architect Pulitzer Finali, the style was studied down to the smallest detail, down to the objects and tableware, created in collaboration with Gio Ponti and produced by Richard Ginori.

Gio Ponti was an Italian architect and designer born in Milan in 1891. He is considered one of the most important figures of Italian design of the 20th century. Ponti has worked in several fields, including architecture, furniture design, product design and graphic design. He was also a prolific writer and editor and in 1928 founded the influential design magazine Domus.

Ponti's work is characterized by its elegance, simplicity and use of modern materials. He was a pioneer of Italian modernism and his work helped shape the look of post-war Italian design. Among Ponti's most famous works are the Pirelli Skyscraper in Milan (1956), the Superleggera chair (1957) and the Ponti Apartment in Milan (1957).
Ponti was a prolific and influential figure in Italian design and his work continues to be admired and studied today. He is considered one of the most important architects and designers of the 20th century.
