Paolo De Poli and Gio Ponti’s animal kingdom

Paduan artist Paolo De Poli (1905-1996) is mostly known for his enamel works, but he also created decorative panels, wooden furniture, and boat interiors through a successful collaboration with Milanese architect Gio Ponti (1891-1979) in the late 1930s.

After the war, the two creatives resumed their partnership for a brilliant series of decorative animal statuettes. We are happy to showcase a selection from their colorful animal kingdom.
