80 Years On and Ponti’s Livia Chair Is Still as Desirable as Ever

Though a cool 80 years have passed since GioPonti designed the Livia Chair, it is still turning heads and tugging on the heartstrings of today’s interior designers. And it’s easy to see why.

 

With its sleek, minimalist design and expansive colour options, the Livia can lift a dining room, bring inspiration to a workspace, or become a vibrant statement piece in any modern interior. Livia is as versatile as it is timeless.

 

 

Global Design

The original Livia Chair was designed in 1937 by Italian designer, architect, painter, and co-founder of Domus Magazine, Gio Ponti, for the Livianum offices of the University of Padua. Livia quickly gained popularity within the European design community and has continued to make an impression the world over.
