Gio Ponti Drawer Unit
Several versions of this chest were designed between 1952 and 1955, although I think it looks surprisingly modern. The unit has an elmwood frame resting on brass legs, which are quite different from the angled style we'd normally association with design from this era. The front consists of hand-painted white drawer fronts with panels of different types of wood (elm, mahogany, walnut, rosewood) acting as the handles. Pictured above is the small version, which describes the relative size rather than the price. It measures 102cm wide by 52cm deep by 79.9cm high and costs £4,259. The large version is the same depth, but 185cm wide and 10cm higher than the small unit and costs £7,772.
