Founded in 1932 from an idea by Gio Ponti, FontanaArte is one of the Italian companies that have written the history of lighting and furnishing in Italy and around the world. They have involved the most important architects and lighting designers, who together with the company have built a cultural project on architecture, lighting and furnishings. Timeless objects, with splendid shapes, some of which have become design classics on show in the most important museums around the world.
For almost 90 years, FontanaArte has helped write the history of Italian lighting. Their contemporary, architectural pieces are design classics that are equally at home in museums across the globe or in your own living room.
Quality & Experience
Perfect combination of age-old craftsmanship and technological innovation. Still today, as a result of its investments in development and equipment, FontanaArte successfully mixes a talent for semihandmade products with the stringent standards of complex serial manufacturing. A providential combination of age-old craftsmanship and technological innovation. Old world techniques and an unruffled approach on the one hand; innovative materials, light sources of last generation and serial manufacturing processes on the other. A manufacturing edge which sinks its roots in time and symbolises the very essence of the company. As far back as 80 years ago Ponti and Chiesa showed a keen interest in the contrast between traditional shapes, techniques and work processes and the innovational benefits and advantages provided by industrial production lines
