923.00

Gio Ponti 'Bilia' Table Lamp for Fontana Arte. One of the first and most iconic designs for what would become Fontana Arte. The Bilia went into production in 1932 and remains as timeless today as a signature piece of both Fontana Arte and the incomparable Gio Ponti.

Table lamp for diffused ambient illumination. The base is brushed nickel metal frame, and topped with a satin blown white glass globe. Transparent cord with on/off switch.

Price is per item.

In 1931, 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. This light would exhibit many of the defining characteristics of the Fontana Arte aesthetic: ultra refined minimalism, modern and classic materials, geometry and the transformation of Italian glassworking traditions and craftsmanship to the modern age.
