FontanaArte. House of Glass
260 in stock
From Gio Ponti’s founding of the legendary Milanese manufacturer of glass furnishings in 1932 until Gae Aulenti’s departure in 1996, the present catalogue traces FontanaArte’s historical stylistic arc through twentieth-century design, from the rational logic of modernism to the playfulness of post-modernism. A major firm with an as-yet largely unexplored history, for the first time featuring in an exhibition, which takes a step forward in facilitating avant-garde studies of the culture of glass-making.
