In the lead-up to Salone del Mobile in Milan, we take a peek at some of the city's sumptuous and often hidden away modernist entrance halls

An upcoming book, Entryways of Milan, provides a glimpse of some of Milan's most striking entrance halls. Often hidden from public view behind restrained facades, these entryways are dazzling examples of Italian modernism, designed between 1920 and 1970 by such illustrious figures as Gio Ponti, Giovanni Muzio, Piero Portaluppi and Luigi Caccia Dominioni. Above are some images from the book.

Entryways of Milan, edited by Karl Kolbitz, will be published by Taschen in May 2017
