For FontanaArte to amaze means to surround yourself with Masters.
It could not be otherwise for the company founded by Gio Ponti, which has had personalities such as Max Ingrand and Gae Aulenti as its artistic directors, and names such as Umberto Riva, Shigeru Ban, Alvaro Siza, Renzo Piano as designers,to name but a few.
For design week 2019 -in the Euroluce biennial -FontanaArte calls upon Stefano Boeri Architetti and launches “lasospesa”, the new table lamp.
For one of the best-known Milanese architects in the world, whose Bosco Verticale is one of the most representative and iconic projects of our time, trying his hand at a lamp has been an interestingchange of scale.

Like the art of FontanaArte: it takes shape in an object that does not preclude function, from which a light comes to life. lasospesa is in fact a symmetrical table lamp, born from the elementary principle of the incorporating of two cylinders: a cylinder of primary light suspended in a cylinder of diffused light.
