Fontana 1853 LED, Fontana Arte
An exquisite object, almost entirely in white blown glass, composed of a round element that tapers slightly upward, surmounted by a truncated cone: the classic form of the abat-jour lamp that defined an era in lighting. The peculiarity of Fontana is its multiple light sources: both the base and the lampshade contain one or more. The larger version also allows indirect lighting, thanks to an additional source that projects a beam of indirect light upwards. The differentiated light sources make it possible to satisfy different lighting needs: from a soft, relaxing glow to a sharp beam for reading to suggestive ambient light. The soft and perfectly proportioned forms, the purity of the design and the milky opalescent finish combine to make it a timeless piece, perfect in every setting, whether turned on or off. Now available with Led light sources.

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.
