Design Pietro Chiesa, 1933
Nickel-plated brass
Made in Italy by FontanaArte

The Luminator floor lamp was designed by Pietro Chiesa in 1933. It's stem is made in nickel-plated brass while its classic form and design lend themselves to the deco period it was produced. This classic up-light offers an indirect light emission with a dimmer switch to find the perfect level of brightness for your space.

Milan born Pietro Chiesa was descendant of an eminent Ticinese family of artists. In 1921 he opened his own glass shop after apprenticing at the Giannotti studio. In 1932 Pietro Chiesa was requested by Gio Ponti to partake in the artistic direction of FontanaArte; where he was able to express all his creativity by designing over a thousand pieces of different work. Some of his pieces were entered in the history of design and few of them are still in production today. Pietro Chiesa's artwork expresses a modernity and high technical value, for which he is famous.

Castiglioni

Achille Castiglioni (1918 - 2002) was a renowned Italian industrial designer often inspired by everyday things. He made use of ordinary materials, preferring to use minimal materials to create a maximal effect. Born in Milan, Castiglioni studied architecture at the Politecnico di Milano University and set up a design office in 1944 with his brothers, Livio Castiglioni and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni. The brothers held the viewpoint that design must restructure an object's function, form, and production process. “Start from scratch. Stick to common sense. Know your goals and means,” Castiglioni said. He was best known for his lamps, including Flos, Luminator, Bulb, Arco, and the Snoopy Lamp, inspired by the comics character.
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.
