Architect Gio Ponti founded FontanaArte in 1932 as an artistic division of the Luigi Fontana Company. Historically, the company has been a leader in advanced glass manufacturing and design. The company's works were first distinguished by its realization of artistic stained-glass windows, many of which are today still functional elements and ornamental features of churches and cathedrals, among them the Duomo of Milan and the Cathedral of Brasilia. By using glass, Ponti realized what an enormous potential this material could offer in the in the making of furnishing complements for interiors, and he started to design and produce furniture, lamps and objects with glass as the main distinguishing feature. Soon a new collection was ready to be marketed, and his new design concept was being used as a complement to the interior decoration of many houses that he personally designed. Over the years, FontanaArte has had many contributors to its designs, including Pietro Chiesa, Gae Aulenti, Pierluigi Cerri, Piero Castiglioni, Vico Magistretti, Vittorio Gregotti, Ettore Sottsass, Umberto Riva, Alvaro Siza and Renzo Piano.

Great simple lamp
Bought this for a client. It's actually somewhat hard to find a simple, classic lamp like this. The scale is great and it's a good quality fixture.

The light this lamp gives is amazing! I installed a dimmer switch, to make it even more beautiful!

Elegant and understated!
This lamp looks expensive, but not ostentatiously so. It arrived very quickly and in perfect condition. Thank you.

Great lamp that blends into a minimalist decor.
I wanted a small lamp for my nightstands that accepted normal sized bulbs that would also blend into a minimalist decor. I searched several stores in Houston without success. I saw this lamp online but was reluctant to buy this product without seeing it first "in person". After reading reviews of this and other products from the YLIGHTING website, as well as the their return policy, I bought the lamp. It shipped within 24 hours. It was packaged with care (lots of styrofoam peanuts) and nothing was damaged. The lamp has frosted glass lamp shade which gives a different look. I really like it. I use Philips Hue light bulbs and the frosted glass shade looks really neat with the different colors Hue allows. I also like the lamp because it isn't too big. I have small nightstands and needed a smaller size lamp. My only criticism of the lamp is that when I close drawer on night stand, the glass shade rattles. I am a bit nervious that it will break some day. A better design would have coated the metal brackets that hold the shade with rubber. That is why I give it 4/5 stars. Still, I am very happy with this purchase.
