SOLD Wooden Writing Desk by Vittorio Dassi

Italy 1950s.

Wonderful desk by the Italian designer Vittorio Dassi in a minimal rational shape. Elegant in design without losing the functional quality. Manufactured by Dassi Mobili Moderni and made from different types of wood. The furniture of Vittorio Dassi stands out for the choice of fine woods such as rosewood, cherry wood, ash and walnut. Dassi’s furniture designs are comparable to the refined style of Gio Ponti, to whom Dassi was linked by important collaborations after replacing his father in the company Dassi Mobili Moderni, based in Lissone.

Among the factory’s most important projects is in fact the realisation of the furniture of the rooms for the Hotel Royal in Naples, designed by Ponti in the mid-’50s: this was a period that marked the turning point in Dassi’s practise towards more schematic forms and the employment of teak for the production of modular furniture.
