About the Designer

Pietro Chiesa

Pietro Chiesa Italy (1892 - )

Pietro Chiesa, born 1892 Mailand, served an apprenticeship in the studio of the furniture designer and interior decorator Giovan Battista Gianotti in Milan. In 1921 Pietro Chiesa opened Botega di Pietro Chiesa in Milan. In 1925 Pietro Chiesa showed work at the "Exposition Internationale des Arts DΘcoratifs et Industriels Modernes" in Paris. In 1927 Pietro Chiesa joined Gio Ponti, Michele Marelli, Tomaso Buzzi, Emilio Lancia, and Paolo Venini to found Il Labirinto, which made high-quality furnishings in the Novecento style. Pietro Chiesa concentrated mainly on designing glass. In 1933 Pietro Chiesa became artistic director of FontanaArte, the firm founded by Gio Ponti and Luigi Fontana. FontanaArte started out concentrating on furniture and glass but later became known for lighting. Pietro Chiesa treated glass like a valuable material, fragmenting pieces of it and using special cutting techniques. At the same time Pietro Chiesa created pure forms such as the 1932 glass table, made of a single bent band of clear glass. In 1933 Pietro Chiesa designed "Luminator", an elegant, flute-shaped floor lamp of lacquered brass tubing, which provided indirect light. Pietro Chiesa was a leading exponent of Italian Art dΘco.

About the Manufacturer

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 designs were first distinguished by their 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 started 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 is certified as per regulation ISO 9001:2000. All designs, developing, production and sale of lighting appliances, furnishing accessories, and merchandising observe the regulation UNI EN ISO 9001:2000 for the best quality and to achieve first class customer satisfaction.

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.
