Fontana Arte

FontanaArte official dealer

One of the most influential representatives of the made in Italy lighting design, FontanaArte has its roots in the nineteenth century with the foundation of a glass factory in Milan by the entrepreneur Luigi Fontana. The real brand was born from the meeting between the latter and Giò Ponti, the first artistic director, leaving an indelible mark on the style of the company, so much that his creations still play a central role in the FontanaArte catalog. Glass and crystal gave the brand an immediate international success since the early years, thanks also to the collaboration with the master glassmaker Pietro Chiesa.

FontanaArte Lamps

The production of the ’30s is still very current: floor lamps such as the Luminator model, pendant lamps like the 0024 and table lamps such as the Bilia model by Giò Ponti still appear today in numerous furnishing projects. Even the ‘50s, under the artistic direction of the French Max Ingrand, gave the story a great classic: the Fontana table lamp.

Between the ‘60s and the ‘70s, the Pirellina and Pirellona lamps were created by Giò Ponti, which reflect the shape of its most famous skyscraper, and the famous Uovo table lamp designed by the dutch artist Ben Swildens. The company found a great creative ferment in the 80s, under the artistic direction of Gae Aulenti, who also signed the design of a very famous small table with wheels.

Fontana Arte Design

Among the most recent contributions, it’s possible to enumerate Franco Raggi, author of the Flute floor lamp and the Velo suspension lamp, and Daniela Puppa with her Prima Signora lamp. While maintaining its typically Milanese trait, the brand has also opened up to Scandinavian influences such as those brought by the applique lamp Io of the Claesson Koivisto Rune studio and the Blom lamp by Andreas Engesvik.
