VITTORIO DASSI (1893 – 1973)

VITTORIO DASSI (1893 – 1973) An exceptional and rare Italian Art Deco Credenza or sideboard, circa 1950, the curved rosewood inlaid cabinet decorated with a classical court scene in the manner of Piero del Grande, the whole on a sculpted and carved rosewood support, the interior opening to reveal maple wood shelves with central drawers.

145cm high x 303cm wide x 47cm deep

Notes: 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 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.
