About the Artist: The furniture of Vittorio Dassi (1893-1973), made in the '40s and '50s, 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 functional quality, its furnishings are comparable to the refined style of Gio Ponti, to whom Dassi was linked by significant collaborations after replacing his father in the company, Dassi Mobili Moderni, based in Lissone. Among the factory’s most important projects is the creation of the furniture for 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.
