Ico Parisi, Gio Ponti's protege, designed numerous interiors, furniture (primarily in wood and metal), glass, jewelry, and architecture projects, both independently and with his wife Luisa. Their studio was a meeting place for collaborations between established artists and designers of the day and they were celebrated for their organic designs and interiors.
