Design Franco Raggi, 1999
Borosilicate glass, aluminum, metal
Made in Italy by FontanaArte

The concept of Flute comes from a simple idea: the reconciliation of aesthetic and technical requirements. A glass cone houses a lamp holder in chrome-plated aluminum that is held in place by a thin chrome plated metal horizontal bar crossing the glass and the aluminum. Light is reflected inside the polished cone and thanks to the glass diffuser addressing the light upwards, a uniform and diffused light emission is obtained.

Franco Raggi was born in Milan and obtained his architecture degree at the "Politecnico" University of Milan in 1969. He has been the editor for the magazine "Casabella" and chief editor for the design magazine "Modo". His writing and his works have been published in major Italian and international magazines. He has held lectures and conventions around the world as well as developed architecture, stands, exhibits, books, sets, environments and objects for international companies. Franco Raggi's drawings and his artworks are presented in various museums and private collections around the world.

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.
