fontana black edition table lamp

Design Max Ingrand, 1954
Glass, metal
Made in Italy by FontanaArte

In celebration of the 60th Anniversary of the Fontana table lamp, designed in 1954 by the then artistic director Max Ingrand, a Total Black version has been produced. The technique of blowing glass, particularly in black, renders this Total Black version of the Fontana lamp (also known as 1853) even richer. A world-renowned icon, a timeless design object, it is the table lamp par excellence. A precious lamp born from the art of master glassblowers that pays tribute to the creative genius of Max Ingrand.

Max Ingrand was born in 1908 & died in 1969. He is one of the most relevant personalities of the French stained glass industry of the second half of the twentieth century. Along with being inspired by the Middle ages, Max Ingrands technique and design skills allowed him to produce important artworks all over the French territory. In 1954 he became FontanaArte's Art Director and has designed a number of lamps still being produced today.

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 decor. 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.
