The Monolith


A stainless steel dining ensemble composed of a folding x-shaped profiled table and ten folding chairs.

When nested under the rectangular top, the chairs create a monolithic bloc.   


This extraordinary set is a sculptural force combined with the functionality of modern design.

Each piece of the set is folding and adapting to multipurpose use.

When expanded, the Monolith is a spectacular dining set.

When assembled, it radiates with a serene presence.

Born in Germany, lives and works in London and Venice. She started her career as a fashion designer in Munich Germany. For the following years working in this field, including designing haute couture collections for a private clientele, she launched her inspiring own label ‘zwei’ in London, creating ‘modern clothes for working women’ for which she received the 'Woman’s Own' best Knitwear of the year Award 1982.


A long-running compulsion to design furniture led her to leave the fashion business, and study furniture design at the Royal College of Art London. Since graduating in 1993 she has worked as a designer for a number of renowned european furniture manufacturers, including Classicon, Wittmann and Habitat, as well as private commissions. She has won numerous awards including two Red Dot Awards for high quality design and the International Design Award for longevity Baden-Württenberg. She had various exhibitions and a calling to the teaching profession that reflect her achievements, which go beyond the market success of her products.


Gioia designs have been publicized in countless books and international publications. In her approach to fashion lies her secret to success in furniture. What is astonishing given her fashion design background is the sophisticated nature of her furniture that embodies these concepts, combining timeless and aesthetic forms with stylish functionality without relinquishing sensuality and movement.
