The productions of Vittorio Dassi in the 40s and 50s are distinguished by the use of precious woods such as rosewood, cherry, ash and walnut. Elegant vintage furniture, often decorated with inlaid panels and crystals signed by famous Italian master glassmakers. Without losing its functionality, its furniture can be compared to the creations of Gio Ponti, with whom Vittorio regularly collaborated after taking over the family business Dassi Mobili Moderni in Lissone. One of the most important projects of the manufacturer is the design of the furniture of the rooms of the Royal Hotel in Naples, designed by Ponti in the mid-1950s. This period will mark Dassi’s turn towards more schematic forms and teak, a wood species adapted to the production of modular furniture.
