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.

The Nobi Wall Light is a beautifully designed light fixture.
This fixture was specified as lighting over a lavatory. It worked perfectly.
By:Donna H. , Designer (Dallas, Texas)
a stylish, softly modern, minimalist, asian inspired fixture
The nobi is good fixture where your trying to achieve something close to a stylistic minimalism. I got the model where the glass is on both sides, and it gives a nice soft light to the ceiling as well. A fun trick is to tilt the fixture a bit and it cast a solid line of light onto the wall. I have it in a bathroom with the phillippe starck hansgrohe axor stark plumbing fixtures and the Duravit 04115500 Starck 2 Series Bath Sink and the new toto duraflush toilet. The bathroom has the original clawfoot tub in it, but the nobi doesn't seem out of place with it at all, the shape of it lends itself to a room that still has some of it's old victorian/craftsmen elements intact.

I still love this fixture as much as I did 10 years ago when I first purchased it for a project.
I love the Nobi light. It is so well designed. I have used the sconce with frosted glass on both sides now for over 10 years. It gives off a lot of light and since you can adjust the glass you have choices where to focus the light. I use light fixtures to light a space, not for decoration, and this fixture , while taking up very little space, is very powerful. I will continue to specify this fixture.

Graceful and interesting

It is a beautiful lamp. We have it in our bathroom and it looks great and it makes all the bathroom fixtures dazzle. It has a presence but is still unassuming. It is like jewelry for the walls.

Beautiful and Flexible Design
I have 2 of these in my bathroom. They are very attractive and the quality of the light is excellent. The halogen bulbs can become very hot, so I would be careful about placement, particularly with children.

Nice light but smaller than it looks in the pictures.
I should have paid more attention to the dimensions. It's a small light that would work for a small bathroom or a series of hall lights. It's a good quality light for the right application.

This light is like some outfits that are better worn than on the hanger. When my husband and I opened the box we just weren't that impressed for the money. But when we put the light on the wall it was great. Modern but with a hint of art deco. Like no other bathroom fixture we found. Truly like jewelry.

Very fun light.
I am happy with this light after a somewhat annoying installation problem; I had to drill new holes in the round plate which covers junction box in order to center it over the box.

I live in NYC and have access to all the lighting resources in the city and I find the prices AND the service better at YLighting.
By:Michael F. , Homeowner (New York)
We love these lights. We have a modern house and they fit the decor perfectly, and they give off a ton of light. I've also seen them in a Dutch Colonial and they fit right in there as well.
Y Lighting comes through again on price and service
I recently ordered the Nobi Wall Light and after searching on line, found it at YLighting at the lowest price, with free shipping. It arrived in less than a week in perfect condition. I'll always shop at YLighting FIRST!

Great sconce; nice, fun design
Used 2 for bathroom and it works great. Suggest putting it on dimmer with 150W halogen bulbs which will give you plenty of light. EZ install but info about install hard to find online; use standard circular electrical box.

Hip and Groovy!
These lights are going to look fantastic in my hallway.
By:Kate H. , Homeowner (Washington DC )
An office standard.
We have been using the Nobi for years as a bathroom sconce fixture. We continue to use it because it's a great light source, versatile, and beautifully crafted.

Good things come in small packages

The amazing staff at YLighting helped me select this fixture. Not only does it suit my bathroom aesthetic, but it also provides excellent light output over my vanity.

Best vanity light on the market
I spec this product as a vanity light

modern, clean design, powerful and efficient ambient lights
I have a large living room dining room area that was very poorly lit. All the advice was to insert cans in the ceiling as many as 30!!!

Gorgeous light and design elements
On a dimmer, the light is great. Swivels. Beautiful accent light that is also practical. Definitely a keeper.
