GIO PONTI: RICHARD GINORI INSTALLATION AT THE PARISIAN MUSEUM MARÉCHAUX
During the Maison&Objet Interior Design EXPO the iconic manufacturer Richard Ginori presented a bold new art project at the Parisian Le Hall des Maréchaux. The unique installation is an homage celebrating the renowned Italian designer and architect Gio Ponti.
On the occasion of the exhibition “Tutto Ponti, Gio Ponti archi-designer”, open until 5 May 2019 at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, of which it is official sponsor, Richard Ginori offers an original new installation in the Paris museum’s Hall des Maréchaux.
The installation is a tribute to Gio Ponti with a full immersion in the surprising world of Gio Ponti as an architect emphasising his most iconographic motifs and underlining the profound link between art and Manifattura Ginori’s creativity over the years.
Richard Ginori brings the great master’s iconic designs to life in an innovative form of video mapping on the walls and ceiling of the Hall, that thrills visitors by making them feel like they are participating in Ponti’s artistic genius.
The second floor of Le Hall des Maréchaux presents the new 2019 collections. Discover the new Stuoia 1923 collection with its interwoven motif wrapping around the porcelain, the new giftware items added to the must-have Oriente Italiano collection, and iconic collections such as Volière, representing the epitome of the Manifactury’s master craftsmanship and artistic heritage, the Giardino dell’Iris collection, painted entirely by hand with the Iris symbolising the city of Florence,Perroquets, with its motifs inspired by botanical illustrations in eighteenth-century manuscripts.
The exhibition continues with a selection of Ponti’s artworks recreated by Richard Ginori, including Trionfo da tavola per le ambasciate d’Italia, a striking composition of white porcelain objects with pure gold trim; Le Mani, codifying Ponti’s artistic philosophy, style and interpretation in a limited edition of unique objects; Le Mie Donne, a series of oval-shaped majolica bowls and plates decorated with women in classic Art Deco style; La Conversazione Classica, oval-shaped majolica bowls decorated with allegorical figures alluding to the Arts; Prospettica, an orcino vase which is one of the great master’s best-known works, revealing his background in architecture even in the title; Passeggiata Archaelogica, a series of plates Ponti decorated with a motif inspired by the classicism of the Manufactory; and Vaso Donne e Architetture, a porcelain vase decorated with scenes covering thousands of years of history, from the Ancient Egyptians, Greeks and Romans to the Renaissance.
The story of Ponti and Richard Ginori is completed with new tableware from the Magnifico collection with its precious papyrus motif, symbolising wealth and prosperity.
