Max Ingrand Pendant

$8,000

About

A bronzed metal pendant lamp designed by Max Ingrand for Fontana Arte, Italy, circa 1960. Model #1995. Production ceased in 1964. Lens is of thick crystalline glass. Literature : " Modern : Interiors, Furniture, Design, Details" Bradley Quinn, 2006 pp84. Best known for its elegant and innovative vintage lighting pieces, the Milan-based firm Fontana Arte pioneered one of the key features of 20th-century and contemporary Italian design: the union of artistry and industry wrought by partnerships between creative talents — chiefly architects — and entrepreneurial businesses. Fontana Arte is further distinguished by having had as artistic director, in succession, four of Italy’s most inventive modernist designers: Giò Ponti, Pietro Chiesa, French transplant Max Ingrand and Gae Aulenti. Max Ingrand's first year as artistic director at the Milanese design house (founded by Giò Ponti and Luigi Fontana) was 1954. Prior to that French glass artist Max Ingrand (1908–69), had made a mark in his native country creating detailed stained-glass windows for cathedrals including Notre-Dame de Paris and went on to create some of Fontana Arte's most Iconic Creations.
