Love This House / Villa Planchart by Gio Ponti

Planchart 1

Gio Ponti’s work has always been inspiring to me.   His use of asymmetry and geometric shapes in Venezuela’s Villa Planchart  is one of my favorites of the late designer.   The multi-colored marble tile pattern used in the sitting room above is pretty amazing and don’t get me started on those chairs!  The surrounding greenery makes it veryModern-Bungalow” looking… The Italian Architect was always fearless when it came to bold patterns.  Patterns were most likely everywhere (floors, ceilings, staircases…)  Take a look a a few of my favorite images from his 1956 project below…
