About FontanaArte - In 1881 Luigi Fontana starts his business in Milan, manufacturing float glass for the construction industry. As the century draws to a close, the company is producing refined bespoke and one-off glass furnishing accessories. Gio Ponti, former founding editor of Domus magazine, is invited to take over the company’s art direction in 1931. Several of the pieces he designs for FontanaArte are still in production, including the 0024, Bilia, Pirellina, and Pirellone lamps, and the Tavolino 1932 coffee table. In 2012 Giorgio Biscaro was introduced as artistic director at FontanaArte. He graduated in Industrial Design at Venice University with a dissertation on LED lamps, collaborated with various design brands and in 2007 opened his own studio. In 2009/2010 he showed at the Salone Satellite, receiving enthusiastic feedback from the press and public. In 2011, he was selected by the magazine Case da Abitare as one of the 20 most talented Italian designers.
