Gio Ponti starts as Luigi Fontana’s art director

In 1881 Luigi Fontana starts his business in Milan, manufacturing float glass for the construction industry. As the century draws to a close, the company is producing refined bespoke and one-off glass furnishing accessories.

Gio Ponti, former founding editor of Domus magazine, is invited to take over the company’s art direction in 1931. An eclectic character who is a key player in the cultural ferment of that period, Ponti is also one of the founders of ADI (the Italian Industrial Design Association). He curates the Milan Triennale events on various occasions, lectures at the Milan Polytechnic, and designs both public and private buildings,  furnishings and objects that become part of the history of architecture and design.

Several of the pieces he designs for FontanaArte are still in production, including the 0024, Bilia, Pirellina, and Pirellone lamps, and the Tavolino 1932 coffee table.

FontanaArte reworks its tradition with focus on contemporaneity

The big new entry in the 2013 collection presented at Euroluce lies in collaboration with a new generation of international designers, the use of non-conventional materials for FontanaArte and special attention to a person-centric approach to light at the design stage.

More than a new direction, this is a vocation for FontanaArte, just waiting to be rediscovered and consolidated: combining aesthetic values and solutions perfect for everyday living, so that its lights become fundamental beloved elements in the home, adding a sincere light to the beauty of contemporary life.
