Italian design returns as protagonist in Ltwid Auction House new event: from Gio Ponti to Osvaldo Borsani up to some rarities waiting to be discovered.

An important selection of historic and iconic designs will soon animate this new auction which will once again highlight Italian design. The signatures are the prestigious ones of Gio Ponti, Osvaldo Borsani, Paolo Buffa, Gino Sarfatti and many others who were able to blend elegance, innovation and provocation in a unique way in the twentieth century. The auction will feature all the main protagonists of an era in which research and experimentation were able to revolutionize the standards of the sector, reaching unthinkable heights in terms of inspiration and creative impulse. Among the many lots that will capture the interest of participants, including highlights like very rare pieces by Gino Sarfatti for Arteluce. An innovative design that gave shape to new ideas that marked an era and which today "light up" again with a charm yet to be rediscovered. There will also be a selection of rare furnishings "created" by the brilliant pencil of Gio Ponti and, as mentioned, the auction will not be limited to Italian design but will also range abroad with some wonderful lamps designed by the transalpine designer Max Ingrand, whose masterpieces for Fontana Arte marked an unforgettable decade. A perfect alchemy between Italian design and some international excellence for an event not to be missed.
