Fontana Arte lamps, model 1853/0 by designer Max Ingrand, original from 1950 - 1959.
Pair of bedside lamps, fully working, with the top missing as seen in the photo.
Lamp height: 25 cm
Designed in 1954 by the famous French master glassmaker and decorator Max Ingrand, the lamp was originally named 1853 and later 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 something of a nickname today. The first symbol of a timeless design object, still today a best seller and a timeless icon, Fontana represents the bedside lamp par excellence. The peculiarity of Fontana is the multiple lighting: both the base and the lampshade contain one or more light sources. The larger version also allows indirect lighting: an additional light source projects a beam of indirect light upwards. The differentiated lighting allows you to meet multiple lighting needs: from the soft glow of the rest light, to the intense reading light up to an emotional and ambient light, obtained by indirect emission. Also available with LED light sources. A very precious lamp in white satin blown glass, already reissued in the total black model, is now proposed in a colourful and original version - light grey and amethyst purple - which reinforces the contemporary nature of the project. "Light and colour are certainly the most specific elements in nature. With them we have SERENITY, MOVEMENT, LIFE" declared Max Ingrand. "In reality, the history of architecture tells us what the role of illuminated, opaque, translucent colour was in internal and external architecture (...). Light was no longer just a means to breathe life into colours but has become a means to give life to an entire architecture".
