Passion Table Lamp by FontanaArte

The Passion Table Lamp from FontanaArte is a piece designed by Studio Beretta Associati to highlight the natural sleekness of metal and the tender diffusing properties of frosted glass. It sits along a table surface in a circular base of undisturbed metal. A fixed telescopic stem rises from the base, piercing through the shade in a continuous contour. Contrasting with the polish of the metal, a frosted blown glass shade floats in the air as a timeless dome form. Ambient light melts into the opaque walls of the shade while fanning down in a warm task light. Founded in Milan, Italy, in 1932, FontanaArte originally produced artistic stained glass windows, and soon they started creating modern lighting, furniture and home accessories. With glass as their distinguishing feature, they feature the best of Italian craftsmanship, collaborating with many well-known designers like Pietro Chiesa, Gae Aulenti and Pierluigi Cerri. Offering pieces like the clean, minimal, sculptural Fontana Coffee Table and the shiny, upbeat Pangen Pendant Light, their upscale, high quality products place them as a leader in Italian design.
