David Chipperfield studied at Kingston School of Art and the Architectural Association in London. In 2004, Chipperfield was appointed Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) for services to architecture. In 2006, he was appointed Royal Designer for Industry (RDI), and in 2007 he was made an Honorary Fellow of the American Institute of Architects (Hon. FAIA) and an Honorary Member of the BDA (Buned Deutscher Architekten). In 2008, he was elected a Royal Academician (RA) and awarded an Honorary Doctorate from Kingston University.
David Chipperfield's design philosophy rests on the belief that the best results are achieved through a synthesis of concept, beauty and functional integration.
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.
Looks nice as an ambiance light with mirror - not a task light
It was easy to install and it gives off nice, indirect light up and to the sides. The mirror is nice for the bathroom. This is no task light - it doesn't give off much light, but I like the look. If you have a large wall box check the dimensions. Mine was a little bit bigger than the fixture, allowing some part of it to be shown. I had to cut off part of the plastic on the box and touch-up paint, but it looks fine now. The little light panel is a piece of glass glued on to the metal frame and mine was just a bit angled in. I didn't dare push to hard to straighten it as I was worried it might pop off. (now I don't really notice it). Overall, I recommend it.

clean sleek lines with a nice side out lighting spread pattern
i bought 3 of the smaller size to use as wall sconces at a fire place pointing up. All are on dimmers so at night the side and up light is very subtle. It was important to me that there was no light coming straight out since this would have caused glare in the room. These lights give a great glow out the top and sides. The light is sufficient enough to up light my 2' high ceiling. The white finish is gloss but you do notice a pimple or small bump out in the facia panel. Probably the result of a screw head from behind or a slight manufacturing defect.
Beware that since the side panels are recessed the light barely covers a standard american wall plate. So your attachemnt points need to be perfectly aligned. I had to drill out additional screw holes in the light fixture back panel to get it to perfectly align with my wall boxes.

Couldn't be better if it was custom made.
I needed a light for a bathroom renovation where, because of a dormer, the light had to be basically at eye level. So, with almost every other fixture, you would be staring right into the bulb. This one niftly gets around that problem, sending out light to the sides and bottom (or top, if you mount it that way). Plus, the mirrored front was a bonus for a small space. It doesn't provide a huge amount of light, but if it's not the only light you're relying on, it should be fine. Or get two!
