Fontana Arte

Gio Ponti and Pietro Chiesa formed the Fontana Arte studio in 1933, after Ponti’s partnership with Chiesa’s workshop. Ponti was initially a consultant and artistic director of Luigi Fontana’s glass manufacturing company. Ponti’s work inspired the shift towards Fontana’s entry into lighting design and artistic glass making. Fontana Arte quickly became one of Italy’s leading workshops for contemporary lighting and design. The studio is also highly respected for producing pieces of great artistic quality and craftsmanship; and, their success is owed to the artistic direction of Gio Ponti and his successors, Pietro Chiesa and Max Ingrand.
