Molteni D.150.5 outdoor chaise longue, designed by Gio Ponti, was originally created for the cruise ship Andrea Doria in 1952. This edition is a tribute to Ponti's work for the Andrea Doria, where he brought exceptional environments to life through his multifaceted creativity. The chaise longue, dreamed and designed by Ponti, is a significant representation that anticipates and captures the essence of the unconventional spaces on the ship.
It embodies the continuous and adaptable spaces of his later architectural works, where furniture becomes an integral part of the domestic theater, avoiding fixed scenographies as a traditional living room or bedroom furniture did. Instead, it responds and represents the comfort and needs of those who would use it. This chaise longue is a synthesis of values translated into an aesthetic expression, as Ponti taught. Its forms stand out for two distinctive features: firstly, the continuous line on the side that unites different parts (backrest, seat, armrest, footrest), emphasizing the elongated profile of the chair in accordance with Ponti's design principles.
Secondly, the angle between the seat and the backrest, which precisely follows the construction guidelines outlined by Ponti in the Distex notes of '53, now edited by Molteni&C as D.153.1. The use of solid teak highlights the high-quality craftsmanship, showcasing exceptional woodworking skills. The chaise longue exemplifies the excellence of ebanisteria (fine cabinetry), showcasing meticulous attention to detail and craftsmanship.

Overall, the Molteni D.150.5 chaise longue reflects Gio Ponti's design philosophy and innovative approach to creating versatile and aesthetically pleasing furniture that harmonizes with its surroundings.
