Book Signing November 9th



Please Join us on November 9th at Good Design from 3-7 to welcome our good friend Torinese Architect Davide Alaimo and to celebrate the publication of his two books. Davide has written two scholarly books which document for the first time the productions of Cristal Art and of Colli. Cristal Art was a glass company making products in Turin whose mirrors have been shown by dealers for a number of years. In February I wrote a blog about Cristal Art. I’m planning another soon about Pier Luigi Colli and his company. Both Torinese makers were important manufacturers in mid century Italy but up until now it was difficult or impossible to find documentation and misattributions were being made. Now we have Davide’s two works which include original drawings and catalog images from their company’s archives. Come meet Davide and see these important new works and meet their author!

Announcing Gio Ponti Fabrics at Good Design

Gio Ponti Fabrics by Tre80.
Gio Ponti Fabrics by Tre80.

It’s my pleasure to announce that the Gio Ponti printed textiles will be available at Good Design. We are introducing these fabrics during What’s New What’s Next. Currently being produced by Tre80 whose founder is Fede Grampa,their production is exclusively authorized by the Gio Ponti archives.  These printed textiles are the result of a collaboration between her father, Luigi Grampa and Gio Ponti in the 1950’s. Mr. Grampa’s company, Manufattura JSA, located in Busto Arsizio was one of the chief printed textile concerns in Italy. Ms. Grampa is honoring us with a presentation on Ponti and his relationship with JSA. It should prove to be a very personal glimpse into Mid-Century Italian design. Her talk will begin at 5:45 P.M. on September 22nd. Please register for What’s New What’s Next Here.
