In collaboration with the Gio Ponti Archives and the heirs of the renowned Milanese architect, Molteni&C is reconstructing one of the rare pieces of furniture Gio Ponti designed for outdoor use: the D.150.5 chaise longue projects for the cruise ship Andrea Doria in 1952.
A synthesis of values that resolves itself into an aesthetic, as Ponti teaches. The contours of our chaise longue are characterised by two distinctive features: the first is the continuous line of the side design that unites the different parts (backrest, seat, armrest, footrest) in a single stroke, marking the elongated profile of the armchair in accordance with the Pontian principle.
The second detail is the radius of the angle between the seat and the backrest, which is identical to that of Ponti's precisely stated in the construction notes of the '53 Distex now issued by Molteni&C as D.153.1. The use of solid teak highlights the production merits of high quality cabinet making.

Made to order and International items
Given the breadth of range and the customisation options available on a number of our items, holding stock is not an option beyond our best sellers. As a high proportion of our collections are made overseas, there are varying lead times depending on production times, country of origin, shipping, seasonality and other factors outside of our control. We will provide you with an estimated lead time at time of enquiry and provide you with regular updates once an order has been placed, produced, shipped and available for delivery.
Please contact Dawson and Co to confirm availability and lead time.
