Designed by Gio Ponti as one of the first designs for what would become FontanaArte. In the early 20th century, steel construction was becoming more prevalent, allowing for bigger and more windows in structures. This lead to the need for float glass to be provided quickly and consistently. Seeing the production advancements in float glass technology along with the ability to also produce hand crafted blown glass, Gio Ponti and Pietro Chiesa approached the Luigi Fontana Company to manufacture their designs for the home which could be mass produced but with an Italian artisan craftsmanship.

Architect Gio Ponti founded FontanaArte in 1932 as an artistic division in the company Luigi Fontana, historically, the company leader in advanced glass manufacturing and design.
The design were first distinguished by its realization of the artistic stained-glass windows, many of which are today still functional elements and ornamental in churches and cathedrals, among the Duomo of Milan and the cathedral of Brasilia. By using glass, architect Ponti realized what an enormous potential this material could offer in the making of furnishing complements for interiors.
Urged by this intuition he stated to design and produce furniture, lamps, and objects with glass as the main distinguishing feature. In a short time 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.

FontanaArte's fame, linked to glass and design, continues to grow thanks to the interpretations of Gio Ponti and the insightful collaboration of Pietro Chiesa.
