The Fontana Arte company was formed in 1932 by Gio Ponti under the parent company Luigi Fontana, a leader in advanced glass manufacturing and design. Ponti was a skilled artist in many trades as well as the editor of Domus magazine. He had an intuition to use glass as a distinguishing feature in furniture, lamps and objects. Already designing homes, he could employ this concept in the interior décor. Fontana Arte produced many ornate stained-glass windows in churches, cathedrals, and palaces, including the Duomo of Milan and the Cathedral of Brasilia. Years later, the company has built a name collaborating with respected designers and architects. Fontana Arte continues to evolve and reach out to work with more designers and other companies.
