Design by David Chipperfield, 2005.
Made in Italy by FontanaArte.
Series of recessed lamps for walls or ceilings providing indirect lighting. The fixture has a structure in metal which houses one or more fluorescent lamps. "Slot" is characterized by its ease of mounting and maintenance thanks to its cover being held in position by neodyium magnets.
The starkness of this design allows a luminous effect similar to a knife-cut of light in the wall. This makes "Slot" a very special product which is suitable for both private and public spaces where, apart from illumination, a non-invasive decorative effect is required. Available in 4 sizes. Fixture includes housing.
Fixtures are made to order in Italy and have an approximate 8 to 10 week lead time, returns will not be accepted on these items.

Great Statement piece. Used this (3) to light a long hallway. Very dramatic.

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
