Max Ingrand, 1954
Designed in 1954 by the famous French Master glassmaker and decorator Max Ingrand, this lamp was originally named 1853 and, at a later time, Fontana, in homage to the company of which the Master was Artistic Director for a decade. For design enthusiasts and connoisseurs of the brand's history, 1853 still remains as a sort of nickname. The first symbol of timeless object of design, still today best seller and evergreen design icon, Fontana is the abat-jour par excellence. The peculiarity of Fontana is its multiple light sources: both the base and the lampshade contain one or more. The larger version also allows indirect lighting, thanks to an additional source that projects a beam of indirect light upwards. The differentiated light sources make it possible to satisfy different lighting needs: from a soft, relaxing glow to a sharp beam for reading to suggestive ambient light. Available also with Led light sources. A fabulous lamp in frosted white blown glass, already reedited in a total black variant, it is now proposed in a colored and brand new version - light grey and purple amethyst - to reinforce the contemporaneity of the project. Light and color are certainly the most specific elements in nature. With them we have RELIEF, MOTION, LIFE stated Max Ingrand. Actually the history of architecture tells us what was the role of illuminated, opaque, translucent color in interior and exterior architecture Light was no longer just a means to breathe life into color but became a means to breathe life into an entire architecture.
