Founded in 1932, FontanaArte is an Italian design company that has marked the “history of light and furnishings” in Italy and worldwide. Born of the idea of an architect, the company has always kept strong ties with the design world, gradually involving leading Italian and international architects and lighting designers. With them, the company has created a true cultural project of architecture, lighting and furniture. This design culture, mainly involving fine materials (above all glass), has seen interaction between technology and aesthetic appeal as its main focus, generating a series of timeless objects, with splendid shapes, some of which have become design classics, exhibited in leading museums around the world. Since December 2010, FontanaArte has been able to rely on the sound industrial base and the new international initiative of Nice S.p.A., a group that designs, produces and sells automation systems for gates, garage doors, road barriers, parking systems, solar screens and wireless alarm systems: an ideal partnership between two excellent examples of “Made in Italy” design and production, which have always focused on design and innovation for the home.
