Fontana Arte

A direct derivation of “Luigi Fontana” glass company, FontanaArte was founded in 1933 under the artistic direction of Gio Ponti and the master glassmaker Pietro Chiesa. Thanks to their creative imagination, the production of artistic windows, limited edition furniture and lighting product lines began. The transition from craftmanship to industrial production took place in 1948 with Max Ingrand’s input, responsible for modernizing the production processes.
