Gio Ponti 'Bilia' table lamp for Fontana Arte. Executed in a brushed 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.
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 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 glass working traditions and craftsmanship to the modern age.
