Vittorio Dassi

The furniture of the Italian designer and architect Vittorio Dassi (1893-1973) is characterized by a special love of detail and craftsmanship. Rosewood, cherry, oak, walnut, marble and other fine woods and stones dominate Dassis works.
Vittorio Dassis furniture is an excellent example of elegant design without losing functionality. Dassis objects are comparable with the refined style of Gio Ponti, with whom the designer was closely associated, after replacing his father in Dassi Mobili Moderni. One of the most important projects of the factory is the realization of the furniture for the rooms of the Hotel Royal in Naples, designed by Ponti in the mid-1950s. This period marked a turning point in Dassis practice of using more schematic and structural forms in the production of modular furniture.
