1881 - The start of a successful story

When Luigi Fontana founded his company back in 1881, his focus was on producing float glass for the construction industry. The company produced refined and exclusive domestic accessories made of glass.

1931 was a major turning point for the company, with the appointment of Gio Ponti as the new art director. He decided to get Pietro Chiesa, a renowned and skilled glassmaker, on board. This was the beginning of a new division within the company, which was named Fontana Arte. From that moment on, the company started to design products with a hand-made appearance.
