Vittorio Dassi

The furniture of the Italian architect and designer Vittorio Dassi (1893-1973), designed in the 1940s and 1950s, stands out for the choice of fine woods such as rosewood, cherry wood, ash and walnut, often decorated with inlaid panels and crystal signed by prominent master glassworkers.
Elegant in design without losing the functional quality, its furnishings 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 realization of the furniture of the rooms of the Hotel Royal in Naples, designed by Ponti in the mid-50s: this was a period that marked the turning point in Dassi’s practice towards more schematic forms and the employment of teak for the production of modular furniture.
