Founded in 1932, Fontana Arte is an Italian design company that has marked the "history of light and furnishings" in Italy and worldwide. The company was formed in 1932 by Gio Ponti, as an artistic division in the company Luigi Fontana, historically, the company leader in advanced glass manufacturing and design. By using glass, architect Poni realized what an enormous potential this material could offer in the making of furnishing complements for interiors. Urged by this intuition, he started to design and produce furniture, lamps and objects with glass as the main distinguishing feature.
Seventy five years on and they are still among the most exclusive and respected companies in the world. Fontana Arte is a company which has always retained a strong link with the world of design. Constantly evolving and collaborating with some of the best Italian and international architects and lighting designers, it is no wonder that Fontana Arte is a mark of quality and design.
