FontanaArte is one of Italy’s premier lighting designers, with a rich history and a modern approach to Italian design. In 1933 Luigi Fontana and Gio Ponti founded FontanaArte, a business specialising in the production of lamps and glass furniture. The same year they acquired the studio of Pietro Chiesa, a manufacturer specialising in the production of glass and stained glass.
Between 1933 and 1948 the company rose to international fame under the artistic direction of Chiesa; FontanaArte was producing some of the most forward-thinking, modern lighting and furniture around. Today they’re still on the leading edge of product design, and their Blom Table Lamp is a welcome addition to the Life Store.
