Stunning mid-century Italian Vittori Dassi Walnut drinks cabinet Italy Circa 1957, designed by Vittorio Dassi (Milan, 1893-1973), It features two sycamore lined cabinets flanking an illuminated central glazed and mirrored section with glass internal shelves and display light with three working keys, raised on tall and elegant shaped side supports terminating with brass sabots to all legs, with a creamy/yellow glass inset top.
The furniture of Vittorio Dassi (1893-1973), made in the '4Os 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 the realisation of furniture for 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.
