FontanaArte. Technology, Function, Beauty.
FontanaArte was founded by architect Gio Ponti in 1932. A leader in advanced Italian glass manufacturing and design, FontanaArte's works were first distinguished by artistic stained-glass windows, many of which remain a part of modern life (Duomo of Milan, Cathedral of Brasilia). Ponti realized the potential of this material and soon FontanaArte started to produce furniture, lamps and objects with glass as the main distinguishing feature.
Over the years, FontanaArte has collaborated with many architects and designers including Pietro Chiesa, Gae Aulenti, Pierluigi Cerri, Piero Castiglioni, Vico Magistretti, Vittorio Gregotti, Ettore Sottsass, Umberto Riva, Alvaro Siza and Renzo Piano, all of whom have contributed to the very high quality of design that is FontanaArte.View other products from FontanaArte
