Gio Ponti 'Bilia' Table Lamp in Brass for Fontana Arte

About the Item

Gio Ponti 'Bilia' table lamp in brass for Fontana Arte. Executed in a brushed brass metal frame with a mouth blown white glass diffuser, transparent cord with dimmer and plug. 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. Price is per item. Available in unlimited quantities. In-stock lead time 9-10 weeks. Out of stock can add additional 9 weeks or more. For time-sensitive items, kindly inquire prior to purchasing. 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.

    By Fontana Arte, Gio Ponti
    Located in London, GB
    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.
