Gio Ponti Bilia Lamp for Fontana Arte, Italy 1970s

$9,260.67

About the Item

Gio Ponti (1881-1979) was a Milanese architect, industrial and furniture designer, artist and publisher. He was a pivotal figure in the Italian design and manufacturing industry founding Il Labirinto with Lancia, Buzzi, Marelli, Venini and Chiesa in order to produce high-quality furniture and objects. He also founded Domus magazine which helped contextualise and promote the work of Italian designers and manufacturers around the world. Throughout his career he designed many icons but is perhaps most known for the symbol of modern Milan, the Pirelli skyscraper, in 1956. His furniture has always drawn deeply from Italian traditions and given them a modern edge. This gorgeous lamp is a great example of that. Made from two elements, a textured green aluminium conical base which rises into a delicate opal glass globe. We love this lamp, a refreshing reminder that simple is always best.
