Born in 1891, Gio Ponti became on of the most important Italian artists of the 20th century, a man whose works and writings would prove influential in architecture and industrial design.

After his military service in World War I, Ponti graduated with a degree in Architecture from the Politecnico di Milano University. Afterwards he established his own architectural firm.

Gio Ponti's most outstanding work can be seen in the form of the Pirelli Towers in Milan and in various furniture designs, including the Distex, Superleggera and Due Foglie chairs. Ponti also designed glass bottles, lamps and ceramics.

Additionally, Ponti made a number of textile designs, including the Acqua e Fuoco fabrics from 1933 and the I Morosi alla Finestra fabrics from 1930. Both of these designs were made for the Milanese silk mill Vittorio Ferrari.

Ponti's Acqua e Fuoco: Tartufo has a design of red torches ablaze with orange fire and blue cups spilling out silver water over a taupe background. This is an ideal decorator fabric for light upholstery and window treatments.
