A new collaboration: Paola Navone
A new collaboration, with the architect and designer Paola Navone, which leads to the birth of the Pinecone lamp. A wonderful design object that represents FontanaArte with its values of elegance, craftsmanship and precious materials. Pinecone is a pendant and table lamp mounting a blown glass diffuser, manufactured using the ancient caged blown glass technique: the glass maker blows the molten glass blob into a metal cage, which only partly contains the blob’s natural expansion. In this way, the glass surface is partly trapped by and partly escapes the cage, generating an impression of tension as the object struggles to free itself from its harness; the cage is further enriched by the galvanic treatment that makes it look polished and brilliant. The lighting fixture makes a highly appealing and striking impact either switched on or off.
