Founded in 1932 by Luigi Fontana, owner of an important glass manufacturing company, and Gio Ponti, FontanaArte was the first Italian business to establish itself in the interior design sector. Continually experimenting with new ways of defining contemporary decoration, Gio Ponti brought in Pietro Chiesa, already owner of an artisan glass-making workshop. Together, the two rapidly turned FontanaArte into one of the most important players in the elaboration of early modernity for Italian home furnishing accessories.
In the fifties, Max Ingrand took over as artistic director at the company. This period was one of great modernization of company processes, heading towards a regime of industrial-style production. For FontanaArte, the eighties were a dynamic period of cultural regeneration that asserted the company’s role as one of the absolute main players in Italy and international design. Artistic direction was entrusted to Gae Aulenti who, by involving a large number of very diverse designers, very young or already famous, insisted on research that explored the most expressive experiences in Italian design.
In 1998, the Italian Association for Industrial Design (ADI) awarded the Compasso d’Oro for career to FontanaArte, highlighting in its reasons how the company, by involving different designers, had managed to create a lively creative climate that had upgraded one of the historic names in Italian design.
